Maybe it's the SG that compensates, but I think I mentioned that too. Cheers!


    Well in your setup it might not be that loose....but compared to other pickups...the TZ is one of the loosest and muddy ones I've tried.


    It's not a bad pickup....just compared to other pickups the bottom end is just obscene.

    I asked DiMarzio tech which one is the tightest in the low end,
    clear-articulate but still not harsh (and PAFish)?

    Virtual HOT PAF.......265mV H-5 M-6.5 B-6.5 (9.13K)
    Breed (neck)...........325mV H-5 M-7.5 B-7.5 (10.14K)
    Al DiMeola (bridge)...275mV H-5 M-8 B-8 (10.84K)

    They told me to try the Breed neck...should i go for it? Does anybody here have this pickup in the bridge position?
    I say follow close to their recomdations. They should know better than anybody. I'm still liking the VHPAF. It should have the tightest lowend based on their rating system. It's lowend is 6.5 using there rating system, but the Breed neck is 7.5, almost Super Distortion or TZ range.
