Killer Fat Tone, Huge Dynamic Range!

The DiMarzio Tone Zone is a brilliantly high-output pickup, yet it delivers tremendous dynamic range, so you can get even more tones out of your guitar. Pick softer and the notes are cleaner and quieter, then throw on some harder shredding, and you'll get a ton of fat power. Chords are huge, even single notes have depth, and the DiMarzio Tone Zone's patented dual-resonance coils deliver killer overtones - more than expected from a pickup this fat-sounding. Need power in your bridge position? Step it up with the DiMarzio Tone Zone.

A match for the PAF Pro

I wanted to get a bit of the Buck Dharma flavor without spending $1700+ for a sig guitar so I went with what's in it. I love them, as far as I'm concerned, I get all the tone I was looking for. So, buy a nice guitar (without going broke for a month or 2), drop this and the PAF Pro in it and get those great sounds Mr. Roeser is famous for.

Dimarzio pickup (tone zone)

Love the Dimarzio tone zone first time I tried Dimarzio in any of my guitars, similar to a Seymour Duncan Jb model but not as muddy and better mids..
Music background: Jerry Cantrell inspired..
4/5

Great for certain applications...not so great for metal.

I purchased a basswood body Ibanez RG652 Prestige with a fixed bridge, and it came equipped with a Tone Zone in the bridge. When I first got the guitar, I tuned up to standard and dug right in with my Vox AC30. I instantly enjoyed the tones I was getting. Very warm and clear...and not particularly muddy. Despite a great first impression, I bought the guitar for metal purposes and intended to tune down. I changed the strings, tuned down to D standard and did a proper setup before plugging into my heavily modded(FJA mods) 6505+ head, I was instantly a little underwhelmed. The guitar just sounded too dark and all the qualities I dug about it on my Vox were no longer there. It had a very nasal like quality, especially on the higher notes. I will say, it is definitely not the amp, as the rest of my collection sounds fantastic on it. I plugged it back into the Vox, in the D standard tuning, and though the amp sounds immensely different than my 6505, I still wasn't getting the same pleasing results that I had gotten with it in Standard tuning. I decided very quickly that I would try out a new pickup before rethinking the guitar purchase. I went and grabbed a Dimarzio Illuminator and BAM, the guitar came alive! All my complaints were fixed. The clarity and bite came back and the nasal like quality was gone. I would like to stress, with the right guitar and amp, I think this is a good rock pickup. For my purposes, it just didn't work out. I am hanging on to it, just in case I acquire a guitar that it may suit better one day.
