We consider a discrete Schrödinger operator \({\mathcal{J}}\) whose potential is the sum of a Wigner-von Neumann term \({\frac{c\sin(2\omega n+\delta)}n}\) and a summable term. The essential spectrum of the operator \({\mathcal{J}}\) is equal to the interval [−2, 2]. Inside this interval, there are two critical points \({\pm2\cos\omega}\) where eigenvalues may be situated. We prove that, generically, the spectral density of \({\mathcal{J}}\) has zeroes of the power \({\frac{|c|}{2|\sin\omega|}}\) at these points.
