I haven't heard of a Dimarzio SUPER 3. If they are good for metal I'll take some!

Re: Dimarzio SUPER 3?

You can find this pickup in the phil collens model jackson i think the PC-1 if im not mistaken. Anyways it sounds great its a good solid pickup typical dimarzio tone but not a very good seller its very very high output as I recall. But good solid tone from what i remember.

Re: Dimarzio SUPER 3?

It's a midrange-focused version of the Super Distortion model.

The treble and bass are lower than an SD, while the mids are boosted. It's a very thick, compressed sounding pickup.

Sounds great for both rhythm and lead IMO, not as loose as a Tone Zone or Super Distortion in the bass, and without the brightness of something like an Evolution.

Imagine a Breed Bridge model without the dual-resonance effect, 435mV and abour 25k resistance. It's HOT.

Roadstar,

Download a song called "Typhon". The solo was recorded with a Super 3.

Re: Dimarzio SUPER 3?

i had one made for me, should be here in a week or so . It looked like a very cool pickup, i liked what dimarzio said about it and i have a super distortion and the super 3 has specs i wish more the super distortion was modeled around.

Anyways once i get it, and put it in, i will report back on what i think

It's kind of a sleeper, you don't hear about it like all the other DiMarzio's...

I love it!

If I'm not mistaken, the IBZ-USA F3 pickups on Ibanez 540PII is the equivalent of Dimarzio SUPER 3.

I owned a super 3 and its a huge pup for distortion.. One of the highest output Dimarzios... and is great for dropped tunning...

I loved it... you wont know untill you experiment with it...

Re: Dimarzio SUPER 3?

it doesnt get much hotter than this pickup for a passive, doesnt clean up with the volume down, I would ditch the tone control completely so you get a little high end.
not for everyone
