DiMarzio DP193BKF Air Norton
Manufacturer's ID: DP193FBK
What we say:
This smooth alnico magnet neck humbucker is one of those classic units that gets paired with lots of high output bridge models because it makes such a good partner. It makes a good bridge choice as well, especially if you're after a warm and open pickup without a huge amount of output. It's both vintage and modern sounding at the same time, depending on application. This model is F-spaced so pick this if your guitar is more modern, even if you have a hardtail bridge!
SpecificationThe Air Norton™ started out simply to be the Airbucker™ version of the Norton®. We thought it would make a distinctive-sounding bridge pickup with high-gain amps, but we soon discovered that it’s a radically neat neck pickup, too. The tone is deep and warm, but not muddy. It’s hot, but not distorted. It’s even got cool harmonics, which are really unusual for a neck humbucker. The patented Air Norton™ magnetic structure reduces string-pull, so sustain is improved; and pick attack and dynamics are tremendously controllable and expressive. Combine the Air Norton™ with an Air Zone™, The Tone Zone® or Steve’s Special™ in the bridge position for a perfect blend of power and tone, or use an Air Norton™ in the bridge position with an Air Classic™ Bridge model in the neck position for a distinctive medium-output blues-rock sound.
