In Reply to: Urgent: Are DiMarzio Ultra Jazz Pickups good? posted by Bob C. on November 06, 2000 at 01:08:56:
Bob, I haven't got to personally check out those particular Pus, but DiMarzio
has been around for quite a while. I know Bass Player did a comparison of Jazz
pus, and I think DiMarzio did well. I do like the DiMarzio model one on my old
Gibson FWIW. How do they sound?? Thats the true test. Do they reproduce the
acoustic tone accurately? For me, a bass has to sound great unamplified,(rattle
my ribcage), before I'll consider it.
Just dug out my Jan 98 issue of BP review. They gave them 5 for warmth,4 for clarity,4 for output, 5 for string balance and 5 for value. These are humbuckers so you shouldn't have all the noise problems associated with single coils.
: Now with the bass that I wrote today about earlier I learned that there is a modification on it: DiMarzio Ultra Jazz Pickups. So, are they any good? Please let me know soon as my purchasing window may close soon! Thank you for your time.
