DiMarzio DP252BK Gravity Storm Neck, Black
The Gravity StormÖ Neck & Bridge Model pickups were designed for Steve Vai, and are the next step in his pickup evolution. The pickups are named after a song on his album, Steve Vai: The Story of Light. Steve used to describe pickup sounds in terms of specific frequency responses. Now he describes them as flavour and texture. The flavour of The Gravity StormÖ Neck model is sweet and warm, but the texture has an edge to it. It has the depth of a humbucker with some of the bite of a single-coil.\n\nMost neck humbuckers donÆt do a great job at reproducing pick harmonics, especially if they have a warm sound. This oneÆs different, particularly with 24-fret guitars. The combination of fat neck position tone with harmonics is something we havenÆt often encountered before. It has a throaty quality that sounds like a cross between a humbucker and a single-coil.
