Dimitar Nalbantov got himself a new 7 string guitar with DiMarzio Blaze 7 pickups and instantly decided to give it a solid test run on a tight metal track. Works!
DiMarzio designed the Blaze™ with a scooped midrange, to keep the low seventh string as bright and open-sounding as possible. Chords are very clean, and even heavy overdrive retains a lot of definition. The hot bass response gives the seventh string a lot of impact, while opening up the midrange keeps it from getting muddy.
