    DiMarzio DP158/DP159 Evolution Humbucker Pickup Product Description

    The Evolution humbucker is the result of years of research to come up with the right sound for a very demanding player - Steve Vai. This pickup is designed for maximum impact and power. The sound is tight, aggressive and loud. The design incorporates DiMarzio's patented dual-resonance coil configuration that senses more harmonic overtones than ordinary humbuckers.

    Tech Talk
    The Evolution bridge pickup works best for soloing where the sound must cut through. Low notes are very tight, and the highs have a lot of presence, enabling the pickup to be heard in almost any situation. Obviously, the Evolution(TM) was designed for Steve's Ibanez Jems, but it can add a lot of punch and definition to Les Paul's 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.
