Re: Why is Vai using an black and dif. PU on your JEM?
........or get a good versatile pickup that can actualy do more than scream under gain......
I seriously can't understand why people like the Evo's so much as they are so harsh, I want to cry.
What I think happened is in 1992 when Steve hooked up with Devin Townsend and was introduced to many "noise" bands (+ the grunge era was kicking around as well) made him try and come up with a harsher sound so he asked DiMarzio for help.
Chancess are Evo's were the worst pickup of the bunch but he wanted "harsh" and harsh is what he got.
What I don't understand is why 11 years after parting ways with Devin and 4 mellower albums later he is still using them????
Now listening to Terria - I can see why and how Devin would use Evo's but listening to Steve's music I can't for the life of me comprehend why is he sticking by them.
