We first heard about Paul Gilbert in the 1980s. Billy Sheehan told us about an amazing 18-year-old who had recently arrived in California and had blown everyone away with his musicianship, speed, and awesome technical ability in Racer X. Naturally, we immediately asked Paul to become a DiMarzio endorser. It was the start of a great relationship.Recently, Paul has been heavily into our Area pickups. He’s also been playing a lot of Racer X-style instrumentals, so the time was right for signature Paul Gilbert single-coil sized DiMarzio pickups. The outcome of our teamwork is the new Injector Neck and Bridge Model pickups.
Injector Bridge Model DP423The Injector Bridge Model is one of our hottest hum-canceling models (185mV output) with six individual Alnico magnets. It was designed to work equally well with rapid single-note arpeggios and power chords without becoming muddy or compressed. It has about 40% less magnet-pull than standard single-coils, and this is essential for the superior speed and dynamic range with which this pickup responds to pick attack. Paul loves the results, and you can hear it on his latest CD, Fuzz Universe.Injector Neck Model DP422The Injector Neck Model has a modern rather than a vintage sound. It’s warmer and louder (160mV output) than a typical vintage single-coil — and of course it’s humcanceling. It’s also faster. The Injector™ Neck Model tracks high-speed solos at high gain without becoming either thin or muddy, and has a very full, well-balanced, clean sound. It has about 40% less magnet-pull than standard single-coils, and this is essential for the superior speed and dynamic range with which this pickup responds to pick attack. You can hear it on Paul’s latest CD, Fuzz Universe.The Injector Neck Model, Product No. DP422–List Price $109.The Injector Bridge Model, Product No. DP423–List Price $109.Visit DiMarzio.com to find an online retailer or local dealer near you.Watch Paul talk about his new pickups below: If the video does not appear in your browser, click here.
