Dimebucker uses a powerful ceramic magnet coupled with stainless
steel blades for vulgar attitude. The secret to the Dimebucker's
hard-hitting crunch is the small amount of metal mass in the core of
the pickup. This allows the Dimebucker to have both high d.c.
resistance (16.25k ohms ) and a high resonant peak (5.1k Hz). The
result is a pickup with lots of biting treble, punchy bass, immense
clarity and eyebrow raising squeal harmonics. With such enormous
power it requires a neck pickup that can provide an equal compliment
of balance and versatility. The new Dime set comes with a Dimebucker
bridge and a '59 bridge for the neck, which is what Dime preferred as
the companion to the Dimebucker. The '59 provides a tone that is warm
and smooth and the use of the bridge version in the neck gives
increased output for a better balance with the Dimebucker.
a 2004 interview, Dimebag described the tone of the Dimebucker: "It's
very saturated–not to the point where it's overly fuzzy–but it
has a smooth and crunchy distortion tone. It will give you some extra
gain, but it won't go so far that your sound breaks up and is going
crazy. You get that warm tone with the distortion mixed in and it has
the low end that's kicking you in the butt while the top end is
cutting your face off in the right way, but not ripping your face
off. If you ever listen to a Pantera record, that's what you'll
hear through this pickup.”
