« DiMarzio Air Zone »

Publié le 12/02/08 à 15:00
My gear is: Boss CS-3, Boss DS-2 or Boss OD-2, Boss GE-7, SansAmp Classic and
Hartke Piggyback 60w.

DiMarzio Air Zone pickup. It's a mid-gain humbucker with huge bass response and lots of mid range, which brings a 'nasal' character to the sound. The treble level is very, very low.
I have installed the Air Zone in the bridge position of a 2006 Fender MIM Strat.

Clean: it works if you want a clean sound with some 'nasal' character. The pickup is very clean and the notes sound 'organized'.

Distortion: it works if you want to play metal or hard rock. The distortion gets very tight and the notes sound distinctive from each other, that is, not muddy.

Overdrive: it SUCKS with an overdrive sound. The Air Zone doesn't sound vintage at all and it doesn't sound 'rootsy' nor does it sound 'natural'. It sounds TOO polished for that.

With both the DS-2 and the OD-2, I get a very faithful response to the pedals sound.

The sound of the Air Zone doesn't get altered so much, no matter how I change the configuration of my pedals. Not even the SansAmp alters the Air Zone sound very much, not to mention the CS-3 and the GE-7... none of which brought serious differences. The Air Zone works better if the guitar is run directly in the amp.

Good for metal, hard rock and very, very clean stuff such as jazz. It is just a DISASTER for classic rock and for a vintage sound. I'll give it FOUR because it isn't versatile, it works well with metal and jazz, but sucks anywhere in between.
