Get the tone that turned many 70s and 80s guitarists into legends. This humbucker pickup delivers a thick tone with a tight bottom end.

DiMarzio DP100 Super Distortion Pickup
This is the pickup that started it all. Many of the classic Rock guitar sounds of the 70's and 80's were produced by a Super Distortion and a raging tube amp. But don't confuse classic with outdated. Diverse artists from Al DiMeola, Frank Gambale, and Vinnie Moore to Metal veterans Iron Maiden and Ace Frehley have chosen the Super Distortion as an integral part of their personal sound. With plenty of output and mid-boost to boot your amp into overdrive, Super Distortion humbuckers put out a hot, thick tone with a tight bottom-end: a classic tone when plugged directly into the front-end of any high-gain tube amplifier. Used in the bridge position of a locking-trem equipped guitar, the Super Distortion puts back low-end the tremolo can bleed off. The Super is primarily a bridge position pickup, although it can be used in the neck position with a relatively low-gain amp. Specifically designed for solid-bodies; hollow and semi-hollow guitars can be hard to control with warm, high output pickups.

Tech Talk
When DiMarzio first built the Super, it was a one-conductor pickup. As a 4-conductor pickup, it's extremely versatile. Coil splitting produces a very Strat-like option, both in tone and power. Parallel wiring is similar to splitting, but it's still humbucking and a little more hollow sounding; Paul Gilbert used to use 2 Supers wired in parallel when he was in Racer X.
