tjon901's review"Not great for a 7 string"

DiMarzio DP755 The Tone Zone 7
Dimarzio is a very modern pickup maker. They have been making pickups for many years and are used by many guitar players. The Tone Zone is one of their classic models that has been used throughout the years. It is based on a PAF but with a bit more midrange and more harmonics. It had a ton of low and but was not the tightest pickup out there. Now they are making a 7 string version of that pickup and the limitations of the original design are really showing. It has 4 conductor wiring and a very hot output of nearly 18k. The EQ on this pickup is what ruins it. The EQ on the Tone Zone is slanted hard towards the low end. This is fine on most 6 string guitars but when you are playing with a 7 string you already have a ton more low end. You dont need a pickup that has a bunch of low end in itself. The guitar provides the low end. If anything with a 7 string you want a guitar with a lot of top end and mids to keep clarity with the extra low end the guitar is providing. Dimarzio kept the 6 string voicing for this 7 string pickup and it is just way too muddy. Dimarzio talks and talks about the pickup having less magnet pull but they dont mention the all the useless low end the pickup still has. With this much low end on a 7 string whenever you touch the low B its just going to cover up anything else you are playing. If you have a 7 string and are looking for a good pickup with plenty of low end I would recommend the EMG 707. That pickup has plenty of low and and being active it can handle the 7 string frequencies.

Hatsubai's review"Not like a normal ToneZone"

DiMarzio DP755 The Tone Zone 7
The DiMarzio Tone Zone 7 is the seven string version of the famous Tone Zone. Unlike the original version, this sounds quite different. It has slugs on one coil and adjustable pole pieces on the other, comes with a ceramic magnet inside of it and has four conductor wiring.

DiMarzio really dropped the ball with this pickup. The original Tone Zone had some awesome midrange, was kinda bass heavy but was pretty much a great pickup for RGs. This one, however, is just really muddy. There’s still some real cool midrange going on, but there’s simply too much bass. It doesn’t sound like the original at all, in my opinion.

The low end on this thing kinda farts out or something. I could never get it to get a real tight, yet organic sound like the original Tone Zone did. The midrange is still decent, but it didn’t lead itself to sound like the original. The high end is still fairly pushed back like the original. Normally, I would think it’s because of the ceramic magnet inside of this, but it should be tighter with the ceramic magnet, not looser. At least split coil and parallel tones are decent, but that’s really not saying much. I tried this with bad results in both basswood and mahogany. I don’t think it’ll really match up with any wood out there. Pickup height adjustments didn’t seem to help, either.

If you’re looking for a seven string version of the original Tone Zone, you’re pretty much out of luck. You’re better off looking at something else like the Blaze Custom. It’ll have a somewhat similar vibe to the original Tone Zone, but it’ll be much better sounding. I really wish DiMarzio would redesign this pickup as I’m sure most people would really like a true sounding copy of the Tone Zone in seven string format.

Mont replace a Paf 7 on a Ibanez K7 agreement A # in the bridge position.
The ToneZone not kidding: a hard death, sounds aggressive, big and fat. But the latter is also the default: while I find really nice clean sound, the cot "baveu" is sometimes dlicat in large saturation, the palm-mute, for example, are quite dlicat ringing.
I think this "grain" can be set according to the trs variable used in this case corrected by a mesa with a Mesa 4x12.

Finally a micro-sounding "qualitquot, I would venture to say that Metallica Korn +, and probably a good choice trs in the great family of passive pickups.

I have been using an 8-year lag custom
I like the sound consistent both clar funk that saturated but then we must choose the preamp or amp
I have a personal ada mp1 and a mesa boogie v twin, well I must say that the mp1 it sounds very ho hum harmonics are virtually absent and the response to the game pretty fast but not very convincing on the mesa boogie is quite the opposite, the sound is just great, it sounds good and some quality Quez sout play hard rock or jazz
what is strange is that I have two custom lag, equipped with an EMG and Seymour Duncan and another is the opposite! mesa boogie in it drool all over the place but ada mp1, it sounds serious! So a super micro hoimogène for professional guitarists who want a super micro go anywhere but do not ask him of his super saturated fat, is not why it was designed for me and do not ignore its clear coulplé with a single neck or the middle it gives funk sounds of madness
