The Pickup Place / Dual rail singles equivalent of DiMarzio Evolution set?
« Last post by Orkhan Julfa on December 14, 2018, 08:17:48 pm »
Hi guys!
Which dual rail single sized DiMarzio pickups will be most close to the sound of Evolution humbuckers (more interested in Evo2 and Evolution neck)?
Fast Track 2 in both bridge and neck positions?

Apart from the screws, the pickup bobbins looks like DiMarzio bobbins with that matte finish.

If you want something different you can go with a Filtertron style or Wide Range Fender style humbucker. Both would be brighter than PAF type pickups, and various sources (Lollar, Creamery) offer them in the regular sized humbucker format.

I've never played the Gravity Storms, but the Breeds did not sound good to me in a mahogany S470 when I tried them. I did not like them in a basswood RG either. They worked much better in an alder Jackson DK2M. I would try the Gravity Storms in your situation.

They did? I haven't had too many of the really old ones come my way.. well that and I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have paid much attention to the holes since they would have been on client guitars.

Got any pics of the older DiMarzios in your collection that feature the 3 holes?

The HFH would be very bright but you can always roll down the tone control to tame it or even pair it with a 250k pot. It would end up being a bright low output humbucker that way although you're probably right about the Air Classic or EJ bridge, I just like to be weird and different :D

How do they compare? Looking to install in an Ibanez S series

Humbucker from Hell will be VERY bright in the bridge. The Air Classic would be a good bet. Have not tried the EJ Bridge myself, but the specs look right.

Thanks.  Its certainly unusual and I had my doubts about it being a Dimarzio unless it was a special model of some sort.

But you are wrong about the 3 holes in the bobbins.  I have a good number of older Dimarzios from the 1970s and early 1980s and all have 3 holes in the bobbins.
