So I snagged Samer's 2027 and I love it to death. The only thing I'm not super happy with is the D-Sonic. It's a noisy little bitch. I can gate it out but it requires a pretty aggressive gate and it's pissing me off.
My last 2027 had a Evo 7 in it and I liked it but before I commit I want to hear you fine gentlemen's (and JJ's) thought on the matter.
A little background. The last year or so my main axe was an Agile 725 with 707's in it. I prefer passives for response and tone but I got spoiled with the 707 being so quiet.
My favorite six string pickup back in the day was the Steve's special so I can't rule out a Blaze.
I actually like the tone of the D-Sonic just can't take the noise. What's out there that's close to the that tone without the noise?
I already know I'm throwing an Air Norton in the neck, unless that new Petrucci thing (Liquidfire?) is the shit.
Preach on brothers, school me.
all of my 7's so far have had evos in the bridge. i'm into it. my 2027 and my kxk both have evos in the bridge. my current 2027 has a blaze in the neck that i think i like better than the air norton. The blaze has a tone more akin to a les pauls neck pickup. more creamy and low endy. where as the air norton seems to have a bit more high end bite. The air norton still sounds good but personally, i prefer the blaze so far.
