All I do is dig in a little bit and there's harmonics everywhere.

The difference you perceived is mostly due to the different magnets used in those pickups. The EVO has a ceramic magnet and the Tone Zone has an Alnico 5 magnet.

Re: EVO's and Pinch Harmonics

The best pickup for pinch harmonics have to be REAL EMGs, hands down. I have found that the EMG 85 in the bridge produces some of the best pinch harmonics that I've ever heard and you can make them last forever. Since the pickups have low magnetic pull and high output, you can put them close to the strings for maximum effect without causing the harmonics to fade away.

If it's just happening on 1 string, try adjusting the individual pole pieces on the PUs. That might help a bit.
I posted a video on how to do PH's in another thread, but I figured I would post it here as well.

Re: EVO's and Pinch Harmonics

I've got an EVO in the bridge of my RG570 and have no issues getting pinch harmonics - I play a lot of Zakk stuff. I have equal success getting PH's playing through my Mesa triple recto or Boss GT-Pro.

Re: EVO's and Pinch Harmonics

I wonder if you could get Zakk Wylde to try out your jem. That would be the test, he can't help but do pinch harmonics.

Try adding a little more mids to your set up, and try again. EVOs are pretty scooped.

To each their own I guess, but I've noticed that digital stuff doesn't respond to PH as well as analog. It'll scream, but with less intensity and duration.

Re: EVO's and Pinch Harmonics

When I have problems getting pinch harmonics, it's because I'm not doing it right. And then I focus on what I'm doing, do it right, and I know it

Re: EVO's and Pinch Harmonics

I think this is down to player technique, when i got my 1550 i found i had the same problem, sorted it now though.
