'Funnily enough, most of the reviews written so far are written by members of this forum, including me. You can trust the reviews.

Re: Thoughts on Dimarzio gravity storm pickups?

I haven't compared it to an Evo, but RGTFanatic talked about the Gravity Storms, and compared them a little with other Vai pickups earlier today:

I think this thing falls right between the Breed and EVO on an EQ scale, if there were such a thing. Oddly enough the GS neck has a ceramic mag. It sounds a lot like a hot-rodded PAF Pro to me, but again, because of the high-mids it's less forgiving of "finger-fuddles" or other mistakes. It DOES lack the "harmonics" of an AN. In that I mean, The AN in my eagle will fall off into a harmonic tone after holding a note and giving it a little trill. The GS won't do it no matter how hard I try. The difference could easily be the guitars though.
Also, check out the review on http://iheartguitarblog.com. Peter (a member here as well as a great music journalist) made some comparisons to the Evos too.
