DiMarzio has released the following new artist pickups for 2009.
- Billy Corgan – BC-1 & BC-2 (signature strat)
- Andy Timmons – AT-1 (signature ibanez)
- Steve Morse – reintroduced Steve Morse neck & bridge pickups
The BC-1 is based on the Air Norton S and the BC-2 is based on the Tone Zone S. Each of which had the frequency response lowered to get the sound Billy Corgan was going for in his new signature strat.
