Re: tone zone 7

lol, over 5 years and no one help this guy out? What if he is still waiting for the answer?

Anyway, I was wondering how similar the tone zone 7 is to the regular. I know they use different magnets, but I hear some people say they are similar and others who say they are totally different.

Re: tone zone 7

I have a tone zone regular in a swamp ash OFR strat, a basswood RG760FM and a TZ7 in a swamp ash seven string. Although the magnets are different between the 6 and 7 versions, I would say the overall EQ shape is comperable. I say that because both my swamp ash 6 and 7 are extemely bright guitars tonally, and the TZ/TZ7 respectively has the same effect to the tone - enriches bass and mids and backs off top end just enough to balance off the tone. I am eager to try a TZ7 in some other woods.

Re: tone zone 7

I use a tone zone in my Mahogany SA220FM which I absolutly love.. a Tone Zone will be in the bridge slot when I pick up another Mahogany guitar for sure.

I had the ToneZone7 in my Universe which is basswood it was good but sounded nothing like the Tone Zone in the Mahogany. I would say the EQ curve is the same but wood is going to make the difference in sound.

Re: tone zone 7

I have more experiance with Duncan pickups, but in my up coming alder bodied RG, I want to try a Tone Zone in the bridge, but what in the neck? I figured I would give the Dimarzios a try for something different.

As always, it really depends on the type of neck pickup tone you like.

More classic tone? PAF Joe, VirtuAL PAF, etc....
More "modern", Prog Rock tones? Evo neck, Air Norton, FRED, etc...

Let the way YOU play aid in your decision making. Be honest with yourself and choose a tone that you REALLY like. Meaning, one that would make you want to play for hours on end. Choose the neck pickup accordingly.

It takes a lot of trial and error to find the right pickup. Reading reviews, and other players comments can help to a certain point. The only way you'll really know is when you install, and try the pickup out on your rig, with your touch.
