DiMarzio Releases 50th Anniversary Super Distortion Pickup

Guitar Pro 8 - Black Friday sale

50 Years Of Super Distortion®, 50 Years of Double Cream

NAMM 2024 marks 50 years of double cream and 50 years of the DiMarzio Super Distortion®. This pickup initiated a sound revolution. Replacement pickups simply did not exist before the invention of the Super Distortion® in the early Seventies. The Super Distortion® was the first pickup explicitly crafted to propel a tube amp into total overdrive and remains the benchmark against which all other high-output pickups are compared. The Super Distortion® offers an ideal blend of power and tone: both single notes and chords leap out of the amp, filling the room (or the track) with a wall of sound. The tonal balance is classic — thick, boosted mids, substantial lows, and rich highs. This is the iconic sound heard for five decades on platinum records, played by artists as diverse as Ace Frehley, Al Di Meola, Phil Collen, Tom Scholz, Kurt Cobain, and Paul Gilbert – to name just a few. Uncover what thousands of accomplished players recognize: the Super Distortion® stands as the finest all-around high-power pickup ever crafted.

DiMarzio 50th Anniversary Super Distortion Pickup

To celebrate the Super Distortion’s® 50th Anniversary, all double cream Super Distortions ordered in 2024 will include limited edition black and gold packaging.
