RiceEatin2010GT's review"Steve Vai's most famous pickup"

DiMarzio DP159F Evolution Bridge F-Spaced
Steve Vai has been a long time DiMarzio and Ibanez user. This is probably the most famous of his pickups and is the one everyone thinks of when they hear Steve Vai’s tone. If you’ve ever seen his white Ibanez guitar, then you’ve probably seen this pickup in action. It is a high output pickup, but it still has some dynamics to it. Granted, there are better pickups out there in the dynamics department, this still had more than some of the other DiMarzio offerings at the time. It has a lot of midrange and high end grind. That’s a common complaint that people have with this, actually. He originally made this with the intent of matching it with an alder body, but I’m not sure I totally agree with him in that aspect. To me, this pickup suits something like basswood or mahogany better. I would never use this pickup in swamp ash for fear of the treble becoming too brittle sounding. The pickup has some nice bass, and it’s not so overpowering that it’ll muddy up your tone. The pickup gets compared to an EMG 81 quite a bit, and there are some similarities between the two pickups. Both are very tight pickups, and the Evo is more dynamic overall, but they’re still not quite the same. The pickup is very good, but you just have to be careful what guitar you put this in. If you put it in a guitar that’s bright sounding, it’ll become too overbearing in the high end and kill the audience’s ears. One other trick to do would be to run a darker sounding amplifier, kind of like what Vai does. They’ll naturally complement each other then. I used this in an HSH configured guitar, and when it has the auto split thing going on, it matches nicely with the middle single coil for that old school stratocaster sound.

DiMarzio DP159F Evolution Bridge F-Spaced
Yeah guitarematos: the sound of steve is his fingers, the body of his guitar (Start type: alder), a pulling strings super low ... but first his fingers still happy for us, right?

I installed an Evo on a rare guitar, a fender telecaster custom shop setneck floydrose (1996). In short everything a guitar mahogany, neck-through (one piece for the body and the handle) a table maple, ebony fingerboard, pickups and Di Marzio an original floyd rose then. I prefer to tell you right away that the animal sounds a bit unconventional, or like nothing else. In the best case, it can be closer to a Luke I, but far back and a moonless night ...

Well actually, scratch that does not outright, except for collectors fendériennes quirks. The mahogany with ebony fingerboard and Floyd, sounds (would you believe?) Super mega cool. As I have a little pride, and I can not buy a 200 euro stew, just because it is absolutely sublime, I have an Evo slammed in his mouth and ... Pan in my mouth: the microphone was saved!

Well, I will not do Bellemare for three hours. This microphone is the absolute antithesis of a duncan. If you do the blues, I do not even know why you're reading this post, it's so obvious that it is not for that. However, I found it much more versatile as they say, respectful of the attack, an absolutely monstrous presence in the mix for the soloists, it makes even the solo play. In any case I was not crushed by a monster power is largely manageable, and I is not metal.

Recommended for lyrical soloists (the treble do not pouet when left ring, which is not given for all microphones ...), then metal, jazz rock (split, we just sent sacred casseroles funky , and lead, welcome Cusson, Winsberg, Gambale, etc.). shredder and course. Try it on guitar with more character, to promote the lead, but avoid the ash guitars, well, it would be really loud.

DiMarzio DP159F Evolution Bridge F-Spaced
I have this microphone for less than a week to replace a jeff beck on my USA Jackson Soloist is little to give an opinion, but I'm starting because I do not agree with what I ' I read here.

Premire is a micro indniablement fairly typical of quality but we can not say it's a bad microphone.

The strength of the micro is its precision, was lucky, this is their request PRIORITY!

It is trs prcis, the notes are and Dfine percent good, and sustain prsence are such that the notes they are sufficient same: no need for a rack ET to ring your solos.

Clearly, it is not exceptional but not bad either, for a humbucker destiny priori the saturation, I find its proper trs clear.

In saturated it is intended to plutt solos evokes the reasons above. Unfortunately, I find it a bit too aggressive and there is a bit too mdiums. That said, the rest of the hardware is perfectly suited to use as well as solo excessive harmonics. Overall employment is fun trs.

In rhythm, it's not fantastic, the sound sounds a little electrical and grsillant limit. It remains nanmoins in the average.

DSOL but I can not use the splitter.

It is now all the problem in the RSID adquate choice between the microphone and the use you make of it.

If you are your only guitarist in a band and you spend 90% play power chords, probably a tone zone or a super distortion will do.

on the other hand, if, as I do, you evolve two guitarists that you get plenty of solos and the other guitarist is dj Submitted in the low rev, then the c ' is very well, mediums complteront trs mix well and solos pierce without difficulty.

It sends a lot of treble, but not too much as I have read is trsgrable, for use on an unconvincing thrashmaster, frankly I do not think it's the fault of the micro ...

Level guitar I had and I still possde few, so I have an exprience on pickups (EMG, Gibson, SD, Dimarzio, etc.), the one is not bad, but its use is therefore targeted primarily adpend you.

Good quality price for me since I bought it used.

I made this choice becaufe the occasion makes the thief, I found a breed or a tone OCCAZ area, I might be made a different choice.

Unfortunately, how we can not change indfiniment mic on his guitar, I'm not sure I picked the right, but one thing is sure, it satisfies me for the moment.

If in the end, and some RPTS After a few scnes I'm from, I will make a fix.
