Thanks for the review and comparison. Any reason why you stuck with the 250k pots?

I haven't heard of anyone ordering anything that hasn't been wax potted.

That's one hot axe guitar!

I really should get a CL/LF set of my own some time. Every time I install a set for a client, I'm always impressed by how great it sounds. You're right about it getting crunchier with less gain.

Would love to know what you think of it after your rotate the pickup around!

Welcome to the forum! I'm a bit late but the Steve's Special would be good although another option to consider is the Gravity Storm. Really hard to say for certain as it really depends on your guitar/amp combination but if you're in the US, DiMarzio allows you to exchange the pickup for another one if you find that the Steve's Special isn't cutting it for you.

I think its the anti corrosion thing elixir uses

Do you know whether they do this on the plain strings, too?

When I used to sell Elixir strings, my sales rep literally told me the plain strings are just regular strings. That might have changed as it's been years since I stocked Elixir strings.

The Pickup Place / Re: Air Zone vs Super Distortion?
« on: March 08, 2022, 02:33:23 PM »
I'm reading this and the first thing I'm thinking is how the Super Distortion sound with the Air mod?

Between the SD and the AZ, the best way I can describe the two is the SD is tighter with more crunch while the AZ is bigger with more fuzz. If anything the AZ is friendlier sounding and works great as a wall of distortion supporting a singer while the SD is more aggressive sounding.

Another option to throw into the mix is the Transition. It's very similar to the AZ but with a tighter more focused bottom end. You can think of it like an AZ after it's done a whackload of squats and booty workouts.

The Pickup Place / Re: MORE color options for DiMarzio 7-string models
« on: March 08, 2022, 02:23:59 PM »
Hey all, Thank you for finally having me first off, it took forever to get the confirmation email...

But I am curious as to what is DiMarzio's deal with why they don't do more color options for the 7-string models... and right off the bay, the colors that come to mind are pink, the green & yellow (like on the Ibanez UV777GR), and the chrome bobbins like on the UV77SVR (Silver, from the 3 Passion and Warfare anniversary models a few years ago...)...

I've since found out that apparently you can & someone has ordered the green & yellow combo for a UV70 Premium Universe, but that "there hasn't been enough of a demand for the chrome bobbin 7-string models" per thier tech via an email... And I'm sure that pink would still be a hard NO if inquired...

So does anybody else want DiMarzio to start making and offering more of the 7-string models in these colors and actually offer them on thier website like they do the 6-string counterparts???

Hello and welcome!! Sorry it took forever for you to get your registration e-mail. It turned out that our e-mails got rejected or filtered as spam by some service providers. Our server is hosted on a network that happened to have some other servers that were compromised and sending spam. It's like one or two neighbours bringing down the whole neighbourhood. Thankfully I found a solution to get around this problem and I'm happy to have you here!

The demand for 7 string models have always lagged behind their 6 string counterparts so funky colours are always a bit of a hard sell and tend to sit on shelves for a very long time. It's been a while since I last checked but weren't custom bobbin combinations available as a custom order through DiMarzio directly?

I think I found a workaround. Hopefully it works. Will need to do some testing.

This might take a bit longer than anticipated. I really hate how our server/IP address has nothing to do with the spam activity but has to deal with this just because of a handful of servers on the same network at the datacenter is misbehaving.

It appears the network our server is on has a few servers that have been flagged as spammers and we've been taken along for the ride. Trying to get us delisted right now but it definitely explains why some emails don't go through, especially in the EU.

I'm actually really really tempted to try this. Thanks for sharing!

I actually really like the CL/LF set, especially on a Marshall or something that's mid-heavy. I swapped out the TZ/AN set in one of my Ibanez J Customs before and it really helped bring it to life. It was almost like the stock TZ/AN set had pillows covering my amp.

I just noticed this now. Might actually hit you up for one of the Bluesbuckers. Gotta see which guitar I want to throw it in first.

Everything you wanted to know about .... / Re: PAF Joe
« on: March 01, 2022, 12:20:02 PM »
I bought a paf joe and put it into the neck of my 22 fret Epipone LP, paired with a Dactivator bridge.  It has two sets of adjustable poles.  Recently, adjusting them, optimizing  pickup height, and wiring the pickup in parallel gave a much more vibrant sound.  I definitely recommend using a very small bright cap to keep the delicate overtones if you like doing volume swell.
Super classic rock n roll tone, wired the bridge pu in series so that when I switch from this there is significant volume boost.  This is very much a rhythm guitar pickup.  Everyone was right about pick attack, but I use a heavy pick like .7mm minimum, and I like the amount of definition. very low noise.   The sound was super punchy and clear for leads when I had it in series, and I may add a switch for that later, but I wasn't as happy with that tone as the 10/10 parallel.
PS this would be mud in a fender neck position...  someone already said do not try and I won't.

That's great to know! Thanks for sharing man!

News & New Guys / New Registrations & server roll back
« on: February 28, 2022, 09:07:14 PM »
Hello Hello!

Decided to spend some time to fix up a few things on the server. Been noticing a lot of suspicious traffic stemming from the Ukraine and Russia lately and updated a few things here and there. I'm still trying to sort why some emails don't make it out but others do.

If anyone is trying to register but not receiving the activation e-mail and it's not in your spam/junk box even after a bit of waiting please send me an email at buddroyce [a t] gmail and I'll manually activate your account for you.

Also had to do a roll back to one day prior to fix some issues. I don't think much should be affected though.
