"Oldschool PAF Sound"

The DiMarzio Pro Track is a sound for those looking for that oldschool PAF sound but with a little more power. It features two blade rails like many other single coil humbucker DiMarzios have, four conductor wiring and a ceramic magnet.

The Pro Track is a pickup that sounds like the old school PAFs. It’s not like the PAF Pro that they offer, but it does have some similarities. Instead, it’s more like the old PAF they used to offer. It has an awesome vowely quality, the low end is boosted just a tad, along with the midrange, and the treble is pushed back ever so slightly. This helps make it sound huge, and it works quite nicely for jazz, rock and even metal.

The pickup is a very medium output pickup. If you’re looking for something hotter, you’ll probably want to try the Fast Track 2. The pickup can be split for a nice single coil sound or run in parallel for a more telecaster kinda sound. The pickup is very versatile and works in pretty much any position. If you put it in the neck, it’ll be a transparent sounding PAF; if you put it in the bridge, it’ll sound big without sounding overly compressed. The best thing about this is that it works in any wood combination out there. None of the frequencies are too overbearing, so it really lets the wood show off their natural characteristics without enhancing unwanted frequencies.

If you’re looking for a more traditional style sounding humbucker to throw in your strat, you should try out this pickup. Adding a push/pull pot or mini toggle switch helps make this pickup even more versatile. If you put it in the bridge, try using a Cruiser Neck. If you put it in the neck, try something hotter like a Tone Zone S, Super Distortion S, Fast Track 2, etc.
