The middle pickup A/B test #1
I regret having plugged the guitar directly into the board, rather than just using one setting on the preamp. *The difference in the demos was not that big, but the difference in real life, I assure you is much bigger.
Everyone picked the Jem single coil (#1) as the one that sounded better. *They were recorded a few days apart and maybe the volume settings were different.
Or maybe you all just like the JEM single better...personal taste, i guess!
According to the specs on the DiMarzio site, the Virtual 2 is 50% hotter than the HS-3 (JEm single coil's equivalent). *I also get a nice 'acoustic' sound from the bridge-middle position. *never got that from any other pickup, including the TX special.
Thanks to all who participated. *I'm sorry i didn't get to do it from my 7 string!
