« More mids than the Blaze Bridge »

Publié le 03/27/11 à 14:52
The DiMarzio Blaze Custom is a DiMarzio Blaze but with more midrange. This also makes it a bit hotter than the original Blaze as well. It features adjustable pole pieces on both coils, four conductor wiring and a ceramic magnet.

The original Blaze Bride was a pretty good pickup, but the newer Blaze Custom is a bit better, in my opinion. The boosted midrange helps really kick this pickup into overdrive without sounding too muddy. It doesn’t clean up as nicely as the original Blaze Bridge did, but it wasn’t really meant to. This pickup isn’t too powerful to where it’ll make everything like a square wave, but it also isn’t so weak that you’ll be wanting more power all the time.

The bass on this is nice and fairly tight. It has enough to sound big but without sounding overly bass heavy. The treble on this is slightly pushed back, but the midrange helps make up for that. The boosted midrange makes this pickup be like a very powerful PAF style pickup. While this was designed around basswood, it works in pretty much most any wood. Keep in mind that mahogany is a very midrange heavy wood, so there might be a bit of an onslaught of midrange, but it shouldn’t be too bad. Again, it all depends on how that particular piece of wood sounds. Split coil and parallel sounds on this aren’t too bad.

If you’re looking for a nice, hot bridge pickup for your seven string guitar, this is a cool option to check out. I ran this for a long time before I finally settled on the Evolution 7. I decided that I wanted a tighter, more focused sounding pickup, hence the change. This thing sounds a bit bigger than the Evolution 7, so it all depends on what you are going for.
