Re: Tonezone tweaks...
Read LonePhantom's post on TZ and 0.047uF here. We did a lot of experiment on TZ. Air-dification, 0.022uF or 0.01 in series. These change the TZ to a very nice pickup.
The two coil of the Dimarzio Air Bucker don't sound the same. I have the Air Classic on neck of my Strat, the slug coil sounded stronger!!!
Honestly, TZ is not my pickup of choice. I have this for many years. I only use it because I read LonePhantom's post on Air-dification and put caps in series. That make it quite good for bridge. I actually set out to buy the Seymour Duncan SH11 Custom Custom. I really like the sound of that. But now it will do. I bought the Air Zone and put on the neck. Only took me 2 minutes of playing to decide to take it out and get the refund!!! It is so so muddy and bassy, it is not usable. Maybe adding cap will help, but it has long way to go. It is designed for bridge. SH11 actually sound very nice on the neck. Only thing is the Air Classic have a better Strat sound on single coil.
