What are the best pickups for EVH sound?
Carlos, I have two ideas. *
1. *It's been rumored that the DiMarzio Tone Zone IS the pickup Eddie had EB/MM put in his endorsement models. * These have great sound and the perfect kind of EQ you're talking about
2. *The DiMarzio Evolution is a little too strong normally, but wired in parallel, it sounds amazingly like EVH. *If you don't want to limit yourself, consider getting an Evolution and installing an On/On/On switch where it is Full Humbucking/Single Coil/Parallel Humbucking. *It's great. *You get that full on screaming Vai tone, an almost SRV type single coil and then an EVH tone.
