Passive Pickup with Active Power

DiMarzio's D Activator passive humbucking bridge pickup is a great choice for the players who call Sweetwater wanting the output of an active pickup but need the tone and convenience of a passive. The D Activator's passive nature gives you more dynamic control than many active humbuckers. This lets you hit the amp harder when you want, get a less aggressive tone when picking lightly, and help your tone clean up when you roll the guitar's volume back. And this pickup is balanced with the D Activator neck pickup for seamless pickup switching when both are installed.

Sick AF

These PUPs are great. They were an upgrade from Duncan Designed Invader knock-offs in my Jackson Kelly. They cut through the mix and are great with pinch harmonics. Not that it matters, but aesthetically they look great especially in a guitar with chrome hardware.

I rarely do product reviews but here goes.. I've been using active pups almost as long as I've played guitar. I teach full time and routinely record and have an extensive live performance schedule. Upon entering the studio last summer I dropped a set of Dactivators in my USA Jackson King V because I wanted something a little different. As several guitars were used I just kept going back to that guitar and I'm convinced it has ALOT to do with these pick ups! I played that guitar on 90% of the album for tracking rhythm guitars and another 75% for solos. It's high output but very dynamic. Cleans up nicely but SHREDS! I use both high gain tube amps and modeling rigs live and it response equally good. What became an experiment of sorts turned into 7 of 10 guitars now loaded with Dactivators. All of them in the bridge position and pared with the Air Norton in the neck position is just WICKED. Just try 'em!!

Excellent Clear Powerful Pickup!!

I recently bought this pickup with the matched neck pickup to drop in my epiphone les paul. The bridge pickup is a perfect sound for what I was looking for. I primarily play metal so I wanted a high output passive pickup that has the good qualities of active pickups without the negatives...and I found it. Very even amount of eq and very responsive to your pick attack. If you are buying the d activators as a set, be warned that the neck pickup has a lot of treble!!....a little to much for my taste but can easily be tamed with my separate tone control on my les paul. As always, sweetwater is top notch. and a shout out to Jason my sales engineer for always being very helpful
