Been looking for more info on DiMarzio’s new Gravity Storm pickups? The press release is now out and it’s a very interesting read. It sounds like Vai was really pushing for something different tonally with these compared to his previous signature pickups.
DiMarzio was nice enough to send a set for review, and while you’re waiting for the final verdict, here’s a little recording of me noodling on them through my Marshall.
DIMARZIO TO RELEASE STEVE VAI GRAVITY STORM™ PICKUPS
