This pickup started a sound revolution. Replacement pickups simply did not exist before the invention of the Super Distortion in the early Seventies. The Super Distortion (and its original 3-conductor version, the Dual Sound) was the first pickup specifically designed to kick a tube amp into total overdrive, and is still the standard by which all other high-output pickups are measured. The Super Distortion has a perfect blend of power and tone, both single-notes and chords jump out of the amp and fill the room (or the track) with a wall of sound. The balance of tones is classic thick, boosted mids, big lows and fat highs. This is the sound you have heard for over three decades on platinum records, from players as varied as Ace Frehley, Al Di Meola, and Paul Gilbert. It is also versatile, 4-conductor wiring allows instant access to Strat-like split and series-parallel modes. Discover what thousands of great players know, the Super Distortion is the best all around high-power pickup ever made.

 

Recommended for the Super Distortion 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 we first built the Super Distortion, it was a 1-conductor pickup. As a 4-conductor pickup, it is extremely versatile. Coil-splitting produces a very Strat-like option, both in tone and power. Parallel wiring is similar to splitting, but it is still humbucking and a little more hollow-sounding, Paul Gilbert used to use two Super Distortion pickups wired in parallel when he was in Racer X.
