Evo2 vs. Gravity Storm
Getting ready to buy the pups for my next project. I've played the Evolution, and HOLY LOUD! The Evo2 was much more my style. Still thick in the mids but not screechingly so like the Evo. Both forced me to be a better player, which I hated at 1st, but grew to appreciate. I never found a perfect neck companion to the Evo2 however. For the next axe which will of course be a one-off Custom JEM tribute, I'm looking hard at a full set of Gravity Storms.
I know it's hard to describe sounds, but DiMarzio's description is the closest thing to gibberish I've seen in a description. WTF is a thundering cloud of ice cream? Anyhoo, I know you guys have played them and some have played both. I've read the reviews but as it applies to my personal style, I'm kinda stuck between the two and I'm tired of flip-flopping.
I play with a good bit of chorus, both clean and distorted, tight delay, and sometimes phased. Lots of octave chords and artificial harmonics with minimal shred. The closest example of the sound I go for stylistically would be "Rhinoceros" by the Smashing Pumpkins on the "Gish" album. That's the best way I know to describe it.
So, between the Evo2 and GS, which pup would you think fits the bill better? And if it's the Evo2, what mid/neck combo would you recommend? Thanks!
