OVERVIEW

Created for Steve Vai.

Designed for maximum impact and power-to get a tight, aggressive, loud sound. It incorporates a patented dual-resonance coil configuration that senses more harmonic overtones than ordinary humbuckers. Works in almost all solidbodies and most semi-hollowbodies as well. Though specifically created for Steve Vai's Ibanez Jems, it can add a lot of punch to Les Paul and similar set-neck guitars. Makes the lowest notes jump out of the amp, and feedback occurs easily with a wide range of harmonic overtones.

Comments about DiMarzio DP158 EVOLUTION NECK PICKUP BLACK AND WHITE REGULAR:

I bought the Evolution bridge pickup 15 years ago and put it in my 2000 Ibanez 570 and paired it with a PAFpro in the neck position. The evo sounds incredible but the PAF sounds like mud.I finally replaced it with the Dp150 evolution neck pickup and magic! it's like having two guitars in one. My only regret is that I waited so long.

A very cool pickup.

By CGR

from LA CA

Comments about DiMarzio DP158 EVOLUTION NECK PICKUP BLACK AND WHITE REGULAR:

Bought two white neck pickups to place on my black B.C. Rich Assasin. Looks sweet and sounds great. Bought the neck for the bridge because neck version was a little too hot for me. Amazingly when you throw down the tone knob all the way and set both pickups on you get Satriani's sound exactly. When I discovered that I knew I made a wise choice with these two. Suckers allow for easy shred dynamics. Tapping and legatos are a breeze. Not sure if you'll get the Satriani sound by using a Evo neck model, though.

Great Pickup!

Comments about DiMarzio DP158 EVOLUTION NECK PICKUP BLACK AND WHITE REGULAR:

Very nice sounds and I am really impressed with the tone that this pup puts out. This thing was put into an old Ibanez GIO GRX20 guitar because I wanted to HOTROD it. I am running it in standard series mode for more output. The tones are still very clean in series mode but with a little added bass boost that blends nicely! ...I also paired this pickup with the Dimarzio Evolution Bridge pup.You can really play any style of music that you want...blues tones are easily achieved with this bad boy as well as sweet solos. Believe me, my lil' Gio is now my favorite guitar. (Thinking about putting these in my Ibanez ART 300 or my Schecter Damien!) FYI -You can get really nice aggressive tones with both Evolution pickups when you use the DR Dimebag 10-52 strings.You'll love this pickup!

THE best pickups I own!!!

Comments about DiMarzio DP158 EVOLUTION NECK PICKUP BLACK AND WHITE REGULAR:

I own the bridge pick up as well and I put these in my Ibanez Gio. This pickup is NOT for the beginner!!! I haven't been playing guitar for very long and this pup is just WAY sensitive to any and every movement along the neck and pickup area. It's crystal clear tones and surgical like precision is breathtaking! These pups are so clear, clean and precise...I wish I wouldn't have bought them. If you're an accomplished guitarist looking for the sweetest distortion sound you could ever hear...buy these...you'll love them!!!!

Comments about DiMarzio DP158 EVOLUTION NECK PICKUP BLACK AND WHITE REGULAR:

I just bought a set of these and they scream. I have them in an LTD MH-50 beecause the original pick ups were trash. The difference is huge! I play a lot of stuff with high gain and high distortion through a Peavey Rage 158. If you are looking for a new set of pick ups these will not dissapoint.

    Comments about DiMarzio DP158 EVOLUTION NECK PICKUP BLACK AND WHITE REGULAR:

    I bought the DP159 Bridge PU first and later added the DP 158. My LP Studio is a good piece of wood with a great finish, so I decided to trick it out with all the trimmings. This guitar holds its tuning better than any guitar I own, so I decided to upgrade it to performance standards. The, original pickups (490R and 490T) were noisy and muddy. After tons of research and considering style (Hard/Progressive Rock) , preferred strings (heavy), amp (high gain tube), effects, etc., the Evolution set won out. I am extremely pleased with the responsiveness of the volume and tone knobs on the guitar after replacement. Before, it was minimal at best. The EVO's also rid the guitar of noise (hiss and hum), something I've fought with since owning the guitar, and another reason for not using it on stage. These are VERY CLEAN high output pickups and exactly what I needed to make the guitar stage worthy.

      Comments about DiMarzio DP158 EVOLUTION NECK PICKUP BLACK AND WHITE REGULAR:

      Sounds great and matches the power of the bridge version. It's not as wild as the bridge, but it gives a reliable alternative tone when working with effects, so you are not switching pedals for different pickups.

        I replaced my stock pickups in my main Ibanez with the Evo bridge and neck pickups and it is louder! Improved overall sound quality and tones I get out of it. Very versatile in playing styles, it's very crisp and clear, every little mistake can be heard with these. I definitely recommend them, gonna order another set later this month for my back up Ibanez.

          There's a few go to neck pick ups for me & this is one.It's articulate yet smooth. It's the perfect companion to the EVO middle & bridge. This set gives you the best of all worlds. From aggressive bridge output to chimey cleans & Trower single coil tones to the smooth, clear neck pickup that splits well & gives you a convincing bell like neck/middle strat tone. I highly recommend this pickup (the entire set too)

              I replaced my EMG 81 and 85 for the Evolution set, and I have to say that the neck is my favorite of the two. I mostly use it on clean riffs, but I love the treble and bass boost that this thing has, in which I use in some more distorted riffs. This is an exellent set of pickups, and I HIGHLY recommend them.

              I have this in the neck of my John Petrucci musicman in combination with a steve's special in the bridge. The evolution is one of the best pickups I own. Very clear and articulate. If have you a basswood guitar its perfect. My only complaint is that it is a tad expensive.

              Comments about DiMarzio DP158 EVOLUTION NECK PICKUP BLACK AND WHITE REGULAR:

              I have been a Steve Vai enthusiast for years. His evolution pickups are both sublte and powerful when you need them to be. Though they are very sensitive and cause mistakes to be a little on the audible side, for the professional they are a dream. Good for anything at or below the gain level of Power Metal, these babies can also do wonders with clean sounds as well as distortion. I would make a note tough, If you are going to rig up an Evolution bridge model with this, use the Evo2. The evolution bridge is excellent (I must admit), however, the Evo2 seems to work much better in the mid position with the Evolution Neck.

              Comments about DiMarzio DP158 EVOLUTION NECK PICKUP BLACK AND WHITE REGULAR:

              I'm playing an LP standard & boogie dc-5 thru marshall 1960a cab. I had high expectations of the DP158, because I love the DP159's OD tone in the bridge. But compared to the duncan pearly gates in the neck position: the DP158 is definitely smooth, but overly-compressed with an utter absence of high end. I'll be sticking with the PG in my particular case.

              Replaced the stock pickup(which was pretty good) in my Gibson Flying V. I wanted more from the bridge pickup, as I don't play clean very often, so I put in an X2N. Which I absolutely love. The Evolution Neck pickup, has great output and pairs up perfectly with the X2N for me.
