Re: Duncan Distortion VS Dimarzio Distortion? What's the difference in output and EQ?
Interesting you folks talk about the DD having too much treble. I had one in a Kramer that had a maple neck and maple body. It was one of those that had the cool graphics. This one had a space graphic with a saturn theme if memory serves me and a OFR, and it sounded good, but too bright. I traded that guitar for two guitars, and wish I'd kept it.
Anyway, I had a Dean Noir I think it was called that had Mahogany body and neck or at least body, and I stuck one in it, the DD that is, and it sounded outstanding! Just perfect. I also had one (DD) in another guitar that was mahogany and it also sounded killer. I think it's according to the guitar wood. When it did sound good, it sounded great too me. I mean it just was killer in that I could turn it down and get that cool PAFish blues tone big time thru a tube amp, or that almost brown sound. Hard to describe. To me it's not as much fizzle or something compared to the Dimarzio. But, I stuck a Dimarzio Distortion in a Strat that had a maple neck and board, and Alder body and it just rocked. I loved it.. So, I guess it's the guitar too huh! I noticed a lot of folks like Dimarzios on here and I do too.. Intersting..
