The mini bar (off topic & misc) / A fun letter to DiMarzio
« on: November 11, 2013, 04:12:50 PM »
A little while back, while in a sleep depravation induced euphoria, I wrote a letter to the DiMarzio information address gushing about the pickups.  It was a long winded letter, but one I felt the need to send them.  I basically told them that their pickups let me shut off my brain when  I need to be a performer, cooperate with my adventurous artist side, and stay out of my way when I need to be a technician in the studio. 

I told them that they keep me from being that guy we all have seen live who is hating his tone and fighting against it and doesn't really get to focus on the show.  We all know who those dissatisfied, prune looking, guitar players in our lives are.  I then told them a quote I have been throwing around since I met you guys on this wonderful forum: "DiMarzio pickups speak for all of the voices in my head." 

They replied back clearly having read the email.  It was pretty sweet and reaffirming.

Well, thanks for letting me rant!

I'll be uploading soon a better recorded demo of the various BB tones you can get through series, parallel, split and out of phase so hopefully that will give more perspective.

Me playing a Breed Neck in bridge position in my Les Paul Studio Lite with an HFH in the neck going through the relative motions.

I haven't done all of my fine tuning to it yet but so far I feel like this is the first pickup I've played where I said to myself the second I heard it clean "This sounds like Max" and it's a beautiful thing to find pickups that seem to understand your personality and playing vocabulary in a way that doesn't mistranslate it... I can't put it into words but for the most part it seems to work with my guitar and my mentality instead of just doing its own thing.  As of right now I'm trying to get a little more highs out of it and a bit more harmonic yield but that might just be me not being used to it or me using a fuzz pedal as my primary distortion at band practice last night but I'm sure adjustment to my rig and to the pup itself will give me what i want

In the vid I'm playing straight through a Peavey C50 4X10 going from the clean channel with if memory serves T:7 M:5 B:8 and little Presence maybe it's at about 2.  The Light gain had the Post Amp at about 8 with the Pre Amp at about 4 and the Heavy Gain had the Pre Amp boosted to 7 or 8.

I like to think Edward Norton.  He's a balanced actor

If I split an Air Norton and an Air Zone and had both running together maybe I can create an Air Fred :madness:

For my own personal interest?  Lately I'm finding the Norton to be vaguely too rude despite the lovely clarity

That's what I'm trying to say about the Guyatone.

Granted I haven't tried one of those schmancy comp units with the vacuum tubes but the blend switch is totally worth looking into because it helps preserve picking dynamics which is what everyone including myself hates about most compression units.  And for under a hundred dollars the thing is practically begging you

If I'm not mistaken Buckethead makes considerable use of the tz as a neck pickup in his white les paul if not more guitars.  Meaty, meaty :madness:

To revisit this topic I would like to say I've been using a Guyatone Compressor and I'm very happy with it.

City this one might be good for you because it has a switch that blends the dry signal into the compression and even without that engaged the thing is uber transparent.

Combine that with low pedalboard real estate and you've got a little fella that is just made of win

Also it's one of the few pedals I'd ever call adorable :madness:
