Billy Sheehan gear interview - Dimarzio pickups

(if you cannot see the video below, try to refresh the page)


Carrying on with ym Vai theme this week I've been searching for Billy Sheehan gear interviews. In case you don't know Billy Sheehan was the basses when Vai was with David Lee Roth, he can shred on the bass and keep up with Vai, he's got the reputation for being a shred guitarist on bass but he's much more than that, he's also a musi
cian.

In the video Billy Sheehan talks about the pickups he used in the past and how he eventually ended up staying with Dimarzio pickups. Billy Sheehan also talks about the specific sound he want from the pickup, that being as clear as possible, Billy want the pickup to be a link in the chain, and not to distort the pure sound of the strings.
