Serious Tone from This High-output Bridge Humbucker!

The DiMarzio Evolution humbucking pickup gives you plenty of output and a tight, aggressive tone, and now Sweetwater offers it to you! Originally developed for legendary guitarist Steve Vai, the Evolution features 4-conductor wiring, ceramic magnets, and DiMarzio's patented dual-resonance configuration, which produces more harmonic overtones than conventional humbuckers. A great pickup for pushing your amp to its full tonal potential, this humbucker is ideal for high-octane live performance applications - while giving you plenty of definition for the studio, too. Take your axe's performance to the next level with the Evolution!

DiMarzio Evolution Humbucking Electric Guitar Pickup at a Glance:
  • Developed for Vai's guitars
  • Plays well with others
  • Great sound with a range of guitars
Developed for Vai's guitars

The result of two years of research to come up with the right sound for Steve Vai's guitars, DiMarzio's Evolution bridge and neck pickups are designed for maximum impact and power. The neck pickup is fat, punchy, and loud. The bridge pickup is tight, aggressive, and louder. Both pickups have DiMarzio's patented dual-resonance configuration to reproduce more harmonic overtones than conventional humbuckers. Evolution pickups are not polite-sounding, and they're not for the inexperienced, but - if you've got the chops and a hot amp - your sound will burn. Evolution pickups were originally designed with live gigs in mind, but they have so much presence and definition that they're great for recording pickups, too, slicing right through even the densest mix.

Plays well with others

Evolution pickups will work in almost all solidbody guitars and most semi-hollowbody guitars, as well. Call your Sweetwater Sales Engineer for details about which pickup suits your particular guitar best.

Great sound with a range of guitars

Evolution pickups work great with bolt-on neck guitars and can add a lot of punch and definition to Les Pauls and similar set-neck guitars - even the lowest bass notes really jump out of the amp, and feedback occurs easily with a wide range of harmonic overtones.
