Staten Island, NY (May 20, 2014) -- DiMarzio, Inc. announces the release of Super Distortion 7 and Super Distortion 8 humbucking pickups for 7- and 8-string electric guitars. The world’s most popular high-output pickup is now available for 7- and 8-string guitars, with all of the sound and power that made the 6-string version our best-selling pickup of all time. The Super Distortion 7 and Super Distortion 8 have an outstanding combination of tone and high output voltage that works with a very broad range of musical styles and sounds, from very clean to complete overdrive.
The 7-string version of the Super Distortion is a little hotter than the original, and the magnetic field responds quickly and accurately to the full range of the 7-string’s frequency response. Split-coil mode produces a very good vintage single-coil sound.
The Super Distortion 8 captures the essence of the original 6-string version with some subtle tweaks. The output is slightly greater, and highs are a little warmer and the lows a little tighter to optimize performance with the 8-string’s longer scale length.
DiMarzio’s Super Distortion 7 and Super Distortion 8 pickups are made in the U.S.A., and may now be ordered for immediate delivery. Suggested List Price for the Super Distortion 7 is $119.99, and suggested List Price for the Super Distortion 8 is $129.99.
