Good but not great

20.10.2016
I bought these for my six string solely for the fact I'm a petrucci fan and liked his tone - upon buying, even though I've wired pickups in the past with no issues, for some reason even after following the simple instructions properly, I had major issues as if they were merged. I took it to a professional who managed to get it working although at this point I'd spent nearly as much as the pickups cost on getting them fitted properly.

Then once fitted, I thought the tone was awesome! But, the neck pickup didn't have the thick tone I was originally after and seemed to lack the clarity I was hoping for originally.

On the whole, I won't say these pickups are bad, but I do believe the other dimarzio models are better, but I also found that ENG pickups have me exactly what I wanted for tone, and I'm a solo artist who plays many genres from country and blues to advantaged metal such as Meshuggah.

Pros - great string separation, nice crunch tone on the bridge, makes playing easier, great clean sound

Cons - nightmare when installing, thin neck tone, only a slight difference from my Ibanez stock pickups

Dream

21.01.2016
Before this pickup I had a Shadow SH660 in my Ibanez SA08. This was splitable and gave already a very good, snotty (also highgain) sound.
But I wanted to try something higher, something else, new. Then I came across the Illuminator.

First of all: the individual veins ... a horror if you do not have the right tool.

When I have the Illu but then finally soldered (also with split function) have fallen my eyes and ears from the head.
The sound was much clearer, the strings and individual tones much more sophisticated, in the high-range range nicely tidied up, no noise, no hum or beeps.
Crunch or clean, a dream. In each pickup setting a different sound, both as humbucker and splitcoil.

This pickup can be from wonderful cleanclengths over crunch, low- / midgain, also the typical "bathtub" sounds here good .... in the high-range a very clean and defined sound ...
This was for me definitely not a fault and the counterpart as Neckpickup is definitely also ordered.

With the pickup you definitely do not go wrong. ;-)
