ToneZone on both positions for my 7 string

I am not much of a Dimarzio fanatic but now I am thinking about giving it a shot and see how it sounds. How does Tone Zone 7 for bothe bridge and neck sound?

Using the same pickup in both positions (unless there are specifically calibrated neck and bridge versions) isn't a good idea. The neck pickup will be MUCH louder than the same pickup in the bridge position. If you want the same tone curve, email DiMarzio and see what they recommend as a good match.

Hmm.... Didn't Mr. Paul Gilbert use the Tone ZOne in the bridge and neck of his guitars for a while?

YES


the PAF 7 is a nice match for ht etone zone, or the air norton 7


those 2 will give you good results in the neck position.


if you are going to be playing really metallic stuff, i would go with something othe rthan the tone zone in the bridge, its very "rock" sounding.

How's evo7 and air norton combination?

If you are to go with evo 7 on bridge, what pups shou you use for neck? Dimarzio may make evo7 neck although I didn't see it in their catalogue.

If you really want a Tone Zone (which you may not, I'm just saying), I'd say go for it. I play a good amount of metal, and I think it works MUCH better for really heavy tones than EMGs or Seymour Duncans. It's my favorite pickup.

Gotta side with Grindifend here, ToneZone is a fantastic pickup! For metal, there is no better pickup. It's hot, pinch harmonics fly off the neck, it's very articulate, great tight bass.... what more could a person ask for?

Dimarzio don't make an Evo7 neck pickup, because the Evolution 6-string neck pickup is based on the 7-string Blaze neck pickup.

my PGM10th has TZ's on both positions and it sounds awesome, no level difference (of course, properly adjusting PU height). I don't know how the TZ7's match the 6 version, so I don't know if my point is valid.
