DiMarzio HB in SingleCoil Form HS3, Strat, Bridge · Electric Guitar Pickup

Larry diMarzio's superdistortion humbucker was the first replacement pickup in the 1970s, which was made accessible to a broad market. With almost twice as much output as a normal humbucker, he laid the foundation for a now almost endless range of replacement pick - ups, with which the inclined guitar player can fiddle the sound of his instrument. In addition to the comprehensive range of Replacements you can find DiMarzio pickups as standard on Fender, Ibanez or MusicMan guitars.

The HS-3 was originally thought of as a warmer sounding bridge variant for the HS-2, until Yngwie Malmsteen used it as "his" neck and bridge pickup and almost gave him the reputation of a hot metal pickup over night. This is not really the case. The HS-3 is actually a warm sounding and relatively low - noise pickup that produces a round overdrive sound without corners or edges. What Yngwie discovered is that these qualities complement each other with a violently overdriven amplifier so that the sound is neither muddy nor opaque.
