This pickup started a sound revolution. Replacement pickups simply didnt 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've heard for over three decades on platinum records, from players as varied as Ace Frehley, Al Di Meola, and Paul Gilbert. It's 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 'round high-power pickup ever made.

I've owned this pickup since the early 80s, also many other high-output pickups. The Super D is the best one I have for overdrive with a balanced tone and articulation, you here everything even your fingertips on the rosewood. Wonderful personality for such a massive output- THE BEST.
