DiMarzio DP190 Air Classic Neck
The DiMarzio Air Classic Neck is a neck pickup that DiMarzio invented for the more vintage PAF market. The goal was to create a pickup that sounded like the old PAFs of yesterday but have more updated technology to them. DiMarzio did this by using some of their signature pickup building methods, adding four conductor wiring and using an Alnico 5 magnet.

The Air Classic Neck is a fairly low to medium output humbucker that sounds similar to the old PAFs found in the 50s Gibsons. DiMarzio claims that the Alnico 2 magnets are muddy and undefined. I disagree with that wholeheartedly. A good quality Alnico 2 magnet can help create an awesome vintage tone. To make their Alnico 5 act like an Alnico 2, they added an air gap between the magnet and the coils. This weakens the overall pull and allows it to create some more interesting overtones. They do it successfully in other pickups, but I can’t say I’m a huge fan with this one.

The pickup is a fairly even pickup, so it’ll work in most any wood combination out there. There’s a slight dip in the midrange that allows it to be clear but still sound big. The neck tone is smooth, vowely and pretty cool, but I can’t help but think the 36th Anniversary pickup that DiMarzio has out beats it in nearly every way. The 36th Anniversary has more touch sensitivity, sounds more vintage and gets you the tone they were really aiming for, in my opinion.

If you’re looking for a classic PAF sound, I recommend you try out the 36th Anniversary Bridge pickup instead. You’ll be getting more bang for your buck in nearly every way. However, if you want to try out this pickup, you most likely won’t be disappointed. It’s still a good pickup. I just feel that there are better ones out there today.

DiMarzio DP190 Air Classic Neck
I install the microphone on an Ibanez RT650 to replace the original one. I did same for the other two microphones, ie an Air Classic Bridge DP 191 and DP 116 HS2 center position. With a little application you can install this aisment pice. However, it should shorten the length of Cables and well taped to facilitate the implementation of the pickguard.
The configuration of this set is excellent as the levels of
trs outputs are well balance, forthe DP190 206mV, 90 mV for
the HS2 & 226 mV for 191 DP. I chose the mic splitter did not keep a central homogne output level.
Position serious, it's a micro dlivre trs trs own, with many prsence. It is warm and velvety wish. In clear, with an amp lamps trs is fluid. The clarity of the notes is impressive even by pressing the volume. Same thing with the channel o saturated it will play a bit with rglages to refine your sound. I confess myself a few hours before etter try to find one that suited me best.
Although this is not micro trs powerful, there's plenty to play with. If you apprciez saturations clean and free of burrs, you will be served. Nothing "dgueule" and the notes dtachent with precision, even with fast phrass.
Intermdiare position with HS2, we get a rendering less powerful but still soft. The sound is much finer and ar perfect for rhythmic syncopation.
Note: The pdalier GT8 as a vritable gas plant, I use my old rack GX700 with whom I get really clean sounds fabulous.

In conclusion, I would say that I chose this mic for crystal clear, warm and prcis trs. Parenthse small, I have a Seymour Duncan '59 SH1N Ibanez Artist mounted on a 200 that sounds as much but with much more PCHE. Side of the mdaille, it is much less when prcis puts watts.
DEFINITIONS In, I think this mic is plutt destiny lovers of jazz rock fusion and other fans phrass lyric. Too bad the big sound does not really dcoiffe. I also try to project an Air Norton associated with an Air Zone and a Fast Track.
Excellent micro Therefore, Di Marzio droge does not have its reputable.
