Had enough of Evolutions, any suggestions?
So I have been using Dimarzio evolution's, dp 158 & 159 on my ibanez rg1570 ( they came loaded with guitar) for 6 months and i just had enough. Picks up all the sounds, the sharp mid edge destroys sustain, and just harsh. Also muddy on drops but i got over it. Also, the edge that blocks sustain, is still there, even if i put the tone knob of guitar to 0, my distortion pedals treble to 0 and mids and treble of my amp to 0, still that high end noise is there.... Although it really improved my technic and my ears, ( basically i can tune a guitar with absolute accuracy, to any tuning, and set perfect intonation with my ears, and can get difference between all 9 commas just by ear), it's never going any better after a certain point. Now i am looking for a cheap, simple way to get rid of at least tht high end. İ heard that people use 250 k pots ( not sure volume or tone) too smoothen up the high end. I use a low profile, which sucks here because pickups wont move more then 1 mm, what should i do? İs there any simple/ cheap solution to get better out o it or should i change it, later when i save money? Or just keep it like that, learn use the dam bad horsie 2 wah better and play like vai one day? All help is appreciated.
