Yeah I guess you have a point considering what I have explained sound wise, but I have my amp set up to high treble, not much bass. and mids are about in the middle...so its not really "scooped"

Re: Dimarzio Evolution (bridge) VS. INF 2

Well after playing on it for a few hours, I can tell the difference for sure, its almost perfect...
I'm just running into the idea now that maybe I should go with an EVO2 instead; I'm not sure its mixing with basswood body as much as I would like, I'm not fond of the shill highs and "boomy" low end of the Evolution, and my power chords sound kinda muddy (probably cuz the boomy low end)

Any opinions on this thought? or thoughts on the EVO2 vs. Evolution, factoring in things like: bodywood/whats better for rhythm guitar, powerchords etc.

Like I mentioned before--the Evo2 is the way to go. It's still punchy, but also raunchier.

Evo 2 is much better with basswood.

Re: Dimarzio Evolution (bridge) VS. INF 2

I'd try it in another amp before replacing it.

I have this pickup in a mahogany body which tames the highs nicely. But my EQ is set with LOTS of mids.

My EQ being L-4 M-10 H-6 with gain about 6-7 on a peavey 6505. Sounds beautiful.

Try raising your mids and lowering your treble, try it on another amp, if then you still don't like, it's definatly not for you.

Toodles!

Thanks for the thought...only problem is, this is my main amp cause I can't afford another.
It a Crate, so its pretty decent, but the knob to control the sound is a "shape" knob, so it you can't change treble/bass/mids separate, its all combined with 'slight' adjustment....
Plus I read a few opinions on how the EVO2 works good with basswood while the original EVO is good with mahogany, so I am leaning towards an EVO2 with the basswood body.
The Evolution is great to me mostly, just a good amount to much treble, and a fair too much bass; obviously the EVO2 won't "fix" my sound completely, but I could be a fair step up, even for the amp I am stuck with.

...FYI the only other amp I have around is the good ol' Fender frontman 15

Re: Dimarzio Evolution (bridge) VS. INF 2

Any other opinions on the EVO1 and EVO2/ basswood and mahogany mix?

Also what is Dimarzios exchange police exactly, and shipping cost (if any)?? Guitar center ripped off half my sticker on that so I can't read it...

They should add some extra output to the Evo 2 and name it Evo 3!

Re: Dimarzio Evolution (bridge) VS. INF 2

If you are finding the Evo to be a bit too muddy there is a simple, cheap solution to that.

Get yourself a 0.047uf capacitor and install it inline with the pickup's hot wire, and the pickup selector. This will filter out some of the lower frequencies, reducing the mud.

If it's not quite enough, try a lower value cap. 0.01uf might fit the bill.

This mod costs just cents, and makes a huge difference.

For more info on this mod check out my site.

Well really I don't find the pickup muddy over all thanks to all the output and treble; just low toned power chords (on the top 3 stings) loose all that treble it seems, where the last 2 stings have too much treble.
..So I guess that could help the powerchords, but then the 2 bottom strings would be even more trebly.

Re: Dimarzio Evolution (bridge) VS. INF 2

Just ended up keeping it, I came to like the sound for the most part, and don't feel like removing my whole pickguard again.

Just turn down the highs, and its all good. Only thing I don't like about it now is the "icepick" noise.
Owell lol

EQs are your friends! You can tame that "icepick" tone you're talking about. Listen to LonePhantom and the capacitor suggestion...

If you do decide to change it out for something different see if you can pick up a Paf Pro, I find it to be a nice all rounder that you can dig into a bit harder.

I had to come back and laugh at such a noob post I have here....
Believe it or not I still run INF2s on multiple guitars with slightly adjusted hex poles..and I setup all my guitars personally including the truss rod. It's amazing what tone you can squeeze out of a proper setup. Don't even use that Evo anymore...

Maybe I'ma bit more vintage. Also a fan of the V2 and Genesis V8. Not sure if the original is the same. The SD I have i like and the Peavey "P-12" is another pickup I have...
