Re: Anyone use DiMarzio 7 string p'ups....?
I don't know what an Evo7 sounds like, but I can comment on the Blaze Custom (Mind the difference between the blaze and blaze custom):
Installed in the bridge, it's got a buttery twangy clean-tone that responds very well to the volume and tone-knob - backs off nicely when you want it to. The distorted sound is midrangey by default, and clear all the way down to A - I love it. You could go lower, but it gets a little too muddy for my personal liking. (then again, I am picky about those things - a "25.5 scale could also be the contributing factor there!)
The Air Norton 7 installed in the neck has a full and warm clean sound, with perhaps a little too dull attack for some. Distorted, it makes for a very smooth lead-tone that has an awesome sweep-tone. Personally, however, I wouldn't go below the low E with this pickup - it muds up too much for my liking. Don't get me wrong, the notes are still audible, but the attack gets too cluttered. I reiterate - I am picky.
