  • Massive metal tone dialled to the exact specs of Dimebag Darrell. Beef, crunch, edge, balls.

Details

Crunchy pick attack, scooped mids, and just the right amount of saturation are what this pickup is all about. Dime wanted his signature humbucker to have a thick crunch that sags just a little when you really lay into it. Combine that with a full, tight, low end response, a ceramic magnet, with dual stainless steel blades, and you have the Dimebucker. Huge and straight from the brain of the late great Darrell Abbot. In a 2004 interview, Dimebag described the tone of the Dimebucker, “Its 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”. Combine with a 59 Model (bridge) in the neck position for the setup that Darrell himself used, or get our Dimebag Set for neck and bridge. Hand built in Santa Barbara, CA, the Dimebucker uses a ceramic bar magnet, dual stainless steel blades, 4-conductor lead wire for multiple wiring options, and is vacuum wax potted for squeal-free performance.

Dimebag Set: Dime’s bridge pickup delivers crunchy pick attack, scooped mids and just the right amount of saturation. He wanted his signature humbucker to have a thick crunch that sags just a little when you really lay into it. Combine that with a full, tight low end response, a ceramic magnet and dual stainless steel blades, and you have the Dimebucker.

Dime preferred the warm, smooth power of a ’59 bridge pickup in the neck position to balance with his signature bridge Dimebag pickup. It gave extra teeth to his solos. In 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.”

The complete set is hand built in Santa Barbara, CA. The bridge Dimebucker uses a ceramic bar magnet, dual stainless steel blades, 4-conductor lead wire for multiple wiring options, and is vacuum wax potted for squeal-free performance. The 59 Bridge is vintage inspired, right down to the cloth braid hookup wires. Also wax potted.
