- Developed for Vai's guitars
Developed for Vai's guitars
The result of two years of research to come up with the right sound for Steve Vai's guitars, DiMarzio's Evolution bridge and neck pickups are designed for max impact and power. The neck pickup is fat, punchy and loud. The bridge pickup is tight, aggressive and louder. Both pickups have DiMarzio's patented dual-resonance configuration to reproduce more harmonic overtones than conventional humbuckers. Evolution pickups are not polite-sounding, and they're not for the inexperienced, but - if you've got the chops and a hot amp - your sound will burn. Evolution pickups were originally designed with live gigs in mind, but they have so much presence and definition that they're awesome for recording pickups, too, slicing right through even the densest mix.
Plays well with others
Evolution pickups will work in almost all solidbody guitars and most semi-hollowbody guitars, as well.
Sweet sound with a range of guitars
Evolution pickups work amazing with bolt-on neck guitars and can add a lot of punch and definition to Les Pauls and similar set-neck guitars - even the lowest bass notes really jump out of the amp, and feedback occurs easily with many harmonic overtones.
