Pandemonium
« on: December 20, 2018, 07:12:36 am »
So anyone tried the Pandemonium? While I'm a fan of Nita, and think she's an amazing player, from the limited demos she did for the pickup, I didn't dig the sound of it, seemed slightly muddy and nasal. I am wondering if that's representative of the sound of those, or if it was the mixing to blame.

I want to know if anyone tried them, specifically the bridge pickup, and how does it compare to some other models?

I didn't much enjoy the demo either, and the price of admission with the mandatory cover and color is not helping. I think those are also the reasons you can only find a handful of unofficial demos of the sonic ecstasy as well. Just  my two cents.
Currently torturing:  My parts-caster (roasted alder, rosewood over roasted maple, one humbucker - a DiMarzio Imperium).

Donít expect to be getting one, mainly because of the pricing. It doesnít come off as anything particularly new...the baby of this model and that model??...players that mod can already make that.

Plus, itís ANOTHER of the buy-it-this-way-only offerings. Players first went with aftermarket pups BECAUSE they wanted options.

I hear ya both, and I agree. That's some bad marketing decisions done and all, I just wondered how are they in terms of sound, is all. I wasn't aware it's mandatory with those covers on them, that's just hideous... maybe if they allow them in normal looking version or with normal covers and I can hear a proper demo of them, I might buy them and try them, the way it is now, I'm not holding my breath.

Thanks for answers, guys.

It's one of those pickups that would have gotten a lot more sales if the cover wasn't mandatory(thereby making it more affordable at the same time).

Maybe I should reach out to the folks at DiMarzio for a test sample.

I agree and I'd be (and I'm sure many others) very thankful for a full review of someone experienced such as yourself.

I hope they respond to your interest. They could use the promotion for this product.

I emailed Dimarzio a while back about buying without the covers....itís not an option.
Too bad too because I have some interest in the pickup. But the cover, not so much. And yeah....the pricing sucks.

I like the covers, they just would not work in the guitar I could put them in. They sounded really good in the few opportunities I heard them demo'd in (a video of Nita doing a clinic I believe). It is pretty hard to tell from that, because you kind of need to hear different settings on the amp to get a feel for the pickups.
