Seven-string guitars are hard to amplify. Most players tune the seventh string to a low “B” (or even “A”), and it's a real trick to get a big, solid tone from the other strings without the seventh turning to mud. The Blaze Middle single-coil is exceptionally tight, and is designed to be a match for the Blaze humbuckers in split mode. Both lows and highs are bright and clean.
The basic characteristics of the 6-string Evolution Bridge model sound like a perfect description for a 7-string lead pickup: power, attack and presence. Combining the basic Evolution design with Virtual Vintage technology results in a 7-string pickup possessing crunching lows and intense highs. The output of the Evolution 7 is concentrated towards the upper mids and treble, so there’s a lot of cutting power, and the low end stays hot and clear.
8-string guitars are Tosin Abasi’s primary instruments, but he’s no stranger to 7-string guitars, and the idea of the Ionizer 7 came up soon after the Ionizer 8 left the drawing board. The Ionizer 7 Neck Model has warm lows and clear highs, and performs like a classic single-coil in split mode.
The world’s most popular high-output pickup is now available for 7-string guitars, with all of the sound and power that made the 6 string version our best-selling pickup of all time. The Super Distortion 7 has an outstanding combination of tone and high output voltage that works with a very broad range of musical styles and sounds, from very clean to complete overdrive.
Designed for John Petrucci’s Music Man JP13 guitar, the new Illuminator 7 Neck and Bridge Models are the next generation in John’s signature pickups with DiMarzio. John says he looks for versatility in his pickups so that he’s able to span a multitude of different sounds within one guitar, going from massive overdrive, very tight, rhythmical and aggressive to “more expressive, dynamic and very liquid” when he plays solos. They’re a bit bold — possessing the clarity and presence that a 7-string pickup needs, balancing vintage and modern qualities without sacrificing the best of either.
John used the new Illuminator and Illuminator 7 pickups during the recording of Dream Theater’s upcoming self-titled album. The album will be available September 24, 2013 on Roadrunner Records.
As the popularity of 7-string guitars has grown, so has the demand for a clean-sounding, lower-output pickup that performs like the classic humbuckers of the late 50s. Far from being a modification to a 6-string design, the PAF 7 is specifically designed for 7-string guitars, and incorporates some of the same technology employed in the Virtual Vintage pickup series to produce a sound that’s both clean and open on the low notes and warm and rounded on the highs. The PAF 7 comes with 4-conductor cable.
