Dimarzio Evolution II Bridge Pickup in Violet with F Spacing


The Dimazio Evolution II Pickup is the latest iteration of the amazing pickup line that was designed with legendary guitarist Steve Vai. The original Evolution pickup delivers heavy rhythms and screaming leads the Evolution II on the other hand has been designed to have a little lower output with a better dynamic range meaning that turned up to 11 this pickup still has a lot of power but tone in back a bit and it cleans up really well.

Here's what DiMarzio say about the Evolution II Bridge Pickup

The original Evolution Bridge Model did exactly what Steve Vai wanted it to do: kick butt and produce serious scream. Then he wanted something a little more complex - the same basic tone with increased headroom and dynamics, so that the sound kills on 10 and cleans up when the volume is rolled down. With a little less power than the original Evolution, Evo 2 balances perfectly with the Evolution Neck Model and performs equally well with high gain and vintage amps.

Although Steve was happy with the basic sound of the original Evolution bridge pickup, he felt that a pickup with similar tone and less output would be useful - particularly for live performances. He also requested the frequency response in the 4000Hz to 5000Hz range to be reduced slightly compared to the original Evolution Bridge Model. The Evo 2 accomplishes these tasks by using a less powerful magnet to reduce the pickup's power, and patented Virtual Vintage technology to alter the frequency response without drastically changing the overall tone. The Virtual Vintage technology also allows the Evo 2 to produce a very good single-coil sound when switched to split mode.
