versatility of the tone zone and air norton
« on: March 29, 2008, 05:32:31 pm »
This link to this vid was just posted here on somewhere else and I thought it would be a good idea for me to post the vid here just so it's easier for folks to see/find it. Anyways, here it is.. it's not really blues, it's not really shred, but the tone is great and the playing is great. I've always thought the Tone Zone was more of a pickup for you metal guys until I saw this.

Thanks for posting the video :) I actually posted a comment about it over on youtube. The video actually makes me want to play guitar more rather than fix them all the time.

My first guitar came with Tone Zone/HS2/Air Norton plus coil splitting, and it still covers plenty of ground compared to some of my other guitars...

I had the same idea about the tz and an until I saw this video about a year ago.  I posted this on a thread in the pickup place that vejichan started asking about an Air Norton S.  Not having seen too many videos or heard any sound clips of the Air Norton S, I went with this as a "different" way of looking at the Air Norton and ToneZone.  You see, they are not just for Metal anymore (nor have been).
My first aftermarket pickup was a Super Distortion back in the 70's.  I strayed and tried Rio Grandes, Duncans, and EMGs only to come back to Dimarzio.  Funny were life takes you.

I wish I could play as good as that guy. Love the tone, it's got a Santana vibe going.
