Sound Clips on Dimarzio.com
I'm trying to decide what pickups to replace my V7-S1-V8.
Right now, I'm sticking to Super Distortion Bridge - <something> - Super 2 neck, simply because I want the outputs to be similar. I know these selections are all up to personal choice, so I'm not asking for your opinions on that (though they are welcome anyway). I've done a search and have seen the various choices (TZs and EVOs being very popular).
Now, my real question is about the sound samples on the Dimarzio website. What really can I do with those? The clips are beautiful to listen to, as expected, but then I cannot really say "that sounds like a Tone Zone" as these guys put their guitars through miles of effects, or at least into some sort of processor, in such a way that the resulting sound is "theirs" rather than that of the pickup. I'm not saying that Dimarzio is screwing the cusomers, as I think its great what they're doing.
But, I would really like to hear the pickups in a standard "clean" and maybe "distorted" (hah! and my argument falls apart - how does one define a standard distortion) way.
Would jemsite host such sound clips? Just a few single notes (say a scale) and chords per pickup per body wood, per position?
