Vintage minibuckers were known for being quiet and clean sounding, but they also had a tendency to “stay in the speaker cabinet” and not offer a great deal of clarity. Prepare to be surprised. The DiMarzio Vintage Minibucker™ sound is all about clarity, dynamics, and lots of sparkle. In a word, the DiMarzio Vintage Minibucker™ has chime. It excels at clean, country sounds, but it also shines with extreme levels of amp gain because it doesn't get muddy with a distorted amp.
All positions on solid body guitars.
We have discovered this is an excellent Tele® neck pickup. It balances very well with most Tele® bridge pickups, and it performs equally well with crystal-clean amps and extreme overdrive. Although it is a fairly bright pickup, it isn’t harsh-sounding and will also perform well in the bridge position of both solid and semi-hollow body guitars. We pot the DiMarzio Vintage Minibucker™ in wax after the cover has been installed to eliminate microphonic squealing. We’ve also included 4-conductor wiring for greater sound options.
