2027 is completed!!!! - my pickups finally arrived!!!!
WHOO HOO!!! *My pickups finally arrived!!! *I had placed an order for a Tone Zone 7 and an Air Norton 7. *Apparently they decided not to put out the A.N.7 just yet...so they just offered to make it a custom for me. * I had waited since march/april. *Worth the wait. *Awesome combination. *They are using Ceramic magnets in them now, which are the same as my favorite pickups, the Gibson 496r/500t combo. *Ok, the Tone Zone 7 is wild. *You can rip harmonics out of everywhere! *I'm getting "natural" harmonics (no squealing or *other technique) from even the 9th and 6th frets! *And my 2nd and 3rd fret harmonics come out soo clear now! *It's great! *The sound phased is beautiful. *In one of my phased positions it sounds just like a natural auto-wah. *The Air Norton 7 is very nice. *When double hand tapping chords and rhythms the notes come out very very clear. *Nice punch, yet still rounded and warm. *A little deep for straight jazz...but i either phase it, or cut the coil and it sounds awesome. *Just right. *Very versatile pickups. *Very heavy, warm sound with the mahogany. *The low B comes out very crisp. *No mud here. *(especially through my 1x15 vintage club practice amp....) *Through the 4x12 Voodoo...it roars. *If you are looking for some tight rock pickups for your 7, this is the combo to get. *I do fusion jazz to straight european power/symphonic metal and these cover it all. *Dimarzio is again, the only way to go.
