D Sonic 7™

DP706

Clarity, warm tone, and high output are the qualities that define the D Sonic™. John Petrucci agrees. He's had a lot of experience playing the D Sonic™ on his 6-string guitars, so — when he wanted the same sound from his 7-string — we couldn't say no. The D Sonic™ combination of clean and heavy that works so well with high gain amps for both chords and soloing makes a great choice for a 7-string bridge pickup. The high strings sing and the low strings growl.

Bridge position

Tech Talk

As with the 6-string D Sonic™, the character of the sound can be altered by reversing the installation direction. This can be particularly important because of the effect it will have on the low “B” string. With the solid bar pole piece towards the neck, the low “B” will be fat and heavy. With the bar towards the bridge, the sound will be tighter with more attack. The solid bar coil is also warmer sounding, so two different single-coil sounds are available with coil-splitting.
