Adopt Steve Vai, more rput for his solos shredder for his passion for occarina and chamber music.
In lead, he dmnage: tradition at DiMarzio pickups the faithful restitution, an adapted sound spectrum style, low prsentes and muscles, aggressive microphone. Quite lev gain fairly easy harmonics out. The sound remains prcis, it is never muddy.
Rhythmic, it's something else. In clean, one picks up a treble graillon garish, in short not pleasant at all, less than curb it vigorously with EQ and a bit of chorus.
In rhythmic saturated b'en is so so also: big rock, a happening, but ds that EQ is found to nurse hairpin (large hollow in mdiums), it does not comfortable, not suited what.
Steve Vai has raided other less extreme microphones, "The Breed" DP166 (bridge) and DP165 (neck). Less extreme, but that's not the models "Jazz" ...
In conclusion, I think the Evo, over time, has an unpleasant personality. And it is not versatile. It sends the gain, but ... it is cold enough, not fabulous without clear effects, saturated it does its job, but it does not really me there is not enough "singing" .dropoff window
EMG 81 is far more frquentable (yes, that micro coldness of reputation is a blaze in compar Evo !!!).
A buy knowingly so.
