Pickup Choice for Petrucci / Gilbert Fan
I have a hard decision and its running like crazy in my mind.
Im trying to choose my FIRST DiMarzio 3 pickup selection and I would like a lil help if possible,
Laney Twin Combo
Zoom Gt9.2tt Pedal
Influences and Want to Sound Like:
Well there you have it, my sound really would need to produce Dream Theater stuff but with that cool sound Paul Gilbert has, especially from in Mr Big and his Get Out Of My Yard stuff.
Ive been told ALOT of things but I think ive settled on these choices:
Neck: Air Norton
For that warm, sustain distortion with plenty of harmonics.
Standard sound really.
Bridge: PAF Pro, Steve's Special, Breed, Tone Zone.
Im torn between them, John Petrucci uses Steve's Specials ( or did ) and Satch, Vai and Gilbert uses, or sounds like the others.
Can you make any more recommendations on what best to choose?
DiMarzio recommended Breed or D-Sonic, but I heard the Breed is gritty, the TZ can be muddy and the PAF Pro might not get my Dream THeater sound?
Sorry for long post!
