Both pickups are hum-canceling single-coils with superior speed, dynamic range and 40% less magnet-pull than standard single-coils for superior pick attack, speed and clarity.

Staten Island, NY (November 24, 2010) -- Long-time DiMarzio endorser Paul Gilbert has again teamed up with the company for a new set of single-coil sized signature pickups. The result is the newly released Injector neck and bridge pickups. DiMarzio says that both pickups are hum-canceling single-coils with superior speed, dynamic range and 40% less magnet-pull than standard single-coils for superior pick attack, speed and clarity.

According to the company, the Injector Neck Model has a modern sound that's warmer and louder (160mV output) than a typical vintage single-coil. The Injector Neck Model is designed to track high-speed solos at high gain without becoming either thin or muddy, and has a very full, well-balanced, clean sound.


DiMarzio calls the Injector Bridge Model (DP423) is one of their hottest hum-canceling models (185mV output) with six individual Alnico magnets. It was designed to work equally well with rapid single-note arpeggios and power chords without becoming muddy or compressed.

Both pickups were used in guitars on Gilbert's latest album, Fuzz Universe, and list for $109. Below is a DiMarzio video of Gilbert talking about and demoing the pickups:

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
