Evo 2
« on: June 15, 2009, 11:01:31 pm »
Let's just say you like steve vai's tone but when you tried the evolution bridge you find it sounded too harsh, then the evo2 is for you. It's everything the same as evolution bridge but without the harshness of high mid, thanks to the VV technology which cut off those crazy high mid which can produce ice pick, and because of that it sounded a bit warmer and this makes it an actually very versatile pickup in the rock area department. And if you like tight bass pronounced mids and good highs this is the pickup for you. I find many soloist love this pickup cos it's very vocal... I always tell my friend that evo2 got "rock" singer in it, that's normally how I describe it.

This is one of my favorite bridge pickups....I also like Evo but even when you backed down the volume, Evo was still screamin at full throttle.

Evo2 has all the "Vai" with added volume sensitivity; tight focused and proud clarity. It's actually more versatile than just Steve Vai Tone.

Evo2 is a must try if you play HardRock/Shred.

I think the Evo 2 is as close an admission to a mistake as you are going to get from an endorsed rock star.

"I'll have a PAF Pro please....ahh geez, make it a double."

In what sense? Vai doesn't use the Evo2 as much as he does the Evolution. In fact, it's just an Evolution Bridge with the Virtual Vintage mod, and DiMarzio probably tried this and realized more people would buy it due to the rolled-off upper mids, making the pickup easier on the ears. I don't see in any way, shape, or form, how it's a mistake, let alone an admitted mistake.

Yeap, i ask steve blucher did vai use evo2 in his guitar, none on his main guitars but on his other guitar but he says vai never use it hmmm....... But if you ask me the comparison between evo2 and evolution. Let's just say evolution is more in your face while the evo2 have more singing quality. Plus nick you forgot to mention a little less power on the magnet ;)

ok well there's gotta be an admission of a mistake here, and that's MINE.  Sorry, i thought Vai replaced all his Evolution pickups with Evo 2's.  oops.

So the EVO 2 has a warmer sound, and less high mids? Does it still have the wrapped in presence sound? The EVO rocked in my LP, but was too brittle/screamy in the highs, in my Strat.

Evo2 has slightly less output and the peak at 5-6khz is lowered.
Same basic tone just less in your face.

That clips sounds great!!! So its a Metal machine like the first, but smoother on the top? That should be perfect.

Yeah man, the evo2 is metal machine, actually it's a versatile pickup for the rock type of music, it's clean is not bad as well.
