It's not difficult to make a vintage single-coil pickup that's clean and bright, but not so easy if you also want the high strings to sound sweet above the 12th fret. The True Velvet™ Bridge was designed to make this happen by tuning the coil to a frequency range that’s bright but not thin. We combined this with a magnet stagger specifically designed to enhance string balance, which produces great clarity, even with full chords. The True Velvet™ Bridge is just a touch warmer and louder than the Neck and Middle, so the transition between pickup positions is very smooth and natural. The True Velvet™ Bridge comes standard with hand-ground magnets and vintage cloth covered wire.

DiMarzio PAF 36th Anniversary Bridge
Here are the characteristics that make a great vintage humbucker: a soft magnetic field, sweet tone, perfect balance between warmth and clarity, the ability to go from clean to distorted by pick attack alone. For our PAF® 36th Anniversary Bridge we wanted to continue in the path of pioneers such as Seth Lover (designer of the original Patent Applied For humbucker) and create pickups that combine all of the characteristics of great vintage humbuckers. The PAF® 36th Anniversary Bridge is hotter than the neck. It is not only for set neck 24¾” scale guitars, but it’s also an excellent bridge pickup for trem-equipped bolt-ons.
DiMarzio Area 67 Hum-Canceling Strat
The Monterey Pop Festival of 1967 was a watershed event in American music. When it was over, the world had heard and felt the sound of a Strat® in the hands of a master. Single-coils in 1967 were bright and very clean. And, of course, they hummed. We've captured the classic bright and clean sound but totally eliminated the hum with our patented Area™ technology. We've also reduced magnet pull by 40% for improved sustain and clarity. The Area 67™ has the chime of 60s pickups, and the 2 and 4 positions are light, bright and quack-happy.
DiMarzio Virtual Acoustic
The Virtual Acoustic™ uses the same technology as the Virtual Vintage® line to create a pickup that’s practically noise-free — even compared to humbuckers. The sound is both warm and open, reproducing the natural dynamics and tonality of steel-string guitars and enabling the Virtual Acoustic™ to capture the character of the particular instrument it’s mounted in. Like the Super Natural Plus™, the Virtual Acoustic™ installs easily with foam-insulated mounting brackets, which can be cut down in order to accommodate guitars with smaller soundholes. Twelve adjustable pole pieces allow precise string balance. It also has a volume control with a compensated tone network — to minimize tone changes when the volume is adjusted — and a 12-foot cable.
DiMarzio True Velvet Middle Standard Strat
It's not difficult to make a vintage single-coil pickup that's clean and bright, but not so easy if you also want the high strings to sound sweet above the 12th fret. The True Velvet™ was designed to make this happen by tuning the coil to a frequency range that’s bright but not thin. We combined this with a magnet stagger specifically designed to enhance string balance, which produces great clarity, even with full chords. The True Velvet™ Neck and Middle models have the same specs except for reverse polarity on the middle pickup for hum cancellation in the 2 and 4 positions. The True Velvet™ Middle comes standard with hand-ground magnets and vintage cloth covered wire.
