DiMarzio DP716BK Imperium 7 Guitar Pickup, 7-String, Bridge - Black
The Imperium 7™ Bridge Model was developed for Revocation front man Dave Davidson. Dave’s exceptional guitar playing is difficult to categorize. It has been suggested that he be described simply as a “metal” player without any additional modifiers because he spans the gamut. He’s a true original, and we’re very pleased to be working with him.
It was very important to Dave to have pickups that not only sound good as a lead sound, but also sound great clean because he doesn’t always play with distortion. The low end is full-bodied and the high end comes through crystal clear.
Dave wanted a lot of dynamics and clarity in the Imperium 7™ Bridge Model. He tends to play a lot of complex chord voicings with Revocation, and wanted to be certain that all the notes ring through even with a lot of gain. When the band began playing 7-string guitars, Dave noticed he was playing more with the lower register, so he also wanted the low notes to be extremely punchy and clear.
Imperium 7™ pickups are very responsive to harmonics, and Dave says when he plays open chords with some harmonics on top, “It sounds really, really beautiful. Notes have great sparkle to them”.
