was sicherlich interessant ist von dimarzio:
air norton und evolution neck
beide sehr schön und nicht zu output-stark.
auch gesplittet machen beide pus einen richtig guten sound.
das sagt dimarzio über die PUs:
The Air Norton started out simply to be the Airbucker version of the Norton®. We thought it would make a distinctive-sounding bridge pickup with high-gain amps, but we soon discovered that its a radically neat neck pickup, too. The tone is deep and warm, but not muddy. It's hot, but not distorted. It's even got cool harmonics, which are really unusual for a neck humbucker. The patented Air Norton magnetic structure reduces string-pull, so sustain is improved; and pick attack and dynamics are tremendously controllable and expressive. Combine the Air Norton with an Air Zone, The Tone Zone® or Steves Special in the bridge position for a perfect blend of power and tone, or use an Air Norton in the bridge position with an Air Classic bridge model in the neck position for a distinctive medium-output blues-rock sound.
Recommended For: Solid body and semihollow body guitars.
Tech Talk: When the Air Norton is in the neck position, it's a warm, open-sounding pickup with enough power to balance with all bridge humbuckers. Try it with 500K pots for maximum treble and harmonic presence. In the bridge position, the sound is medium output with solid lows and biting harmonics. You can try it here with 250K controls, or a 500 K volume and 250K tone to fatten the highs up a little. Combines well with Air Classic in neck, and also with Cruiser, Chopper and Blue Velvet single-coils.
The Evolution® neck and bridge humbuckers are the result of two years of research to come up with the right sound for a very demanding player: Steve Vai and his Ibanez® Jems. Both pickups are designed for maximum impact and power. The neck pickup is fat, punchy and loud. The bridge pickup is tight, aggressive and louder. Both pickups have our patented dual-resonance configuration to reproduce more harmonic overtones than conventional humbuckers. Evolution® pickups are not polite-sounding, and they're not for the inexperienced, butif you've got the chops and a hot ampyour sound will burn. The Evolution® pickups were originally designed with live gigs in mind, but they have so much presence and definition that theyre great recording pickups, too; they slice right through even the densest mix.
Recommended For: The Evolution® neck model will work in almost all solid-bodies and most semi-hollow bodies as well.
Tech Talk: Obviously, the Evolution® was designed for Steve's Ibanez® Jems, but it can add a lot of punch and definition to Les Pauls and similar set-neck guitars - even the lowest bass notes really jump out of the amp, and feedback occurs easily with a wide range of harmonic overtones.
