DIMARZIO CRUNCH LAB 7
One thing has stayed consistent throughout John Petrucci’s long and successful career: the DiMarzio® pickups in his guitars. John has been pushing the envelope of progressive metal since the late eighties, and the new DiMarzio® Crunch Lab 7 Bridge Model ensued from our most recent collaboration with John. He used it throughout Dream Theater’s tenth studio album, “Black Clouds & Silver Linings”. John swears this is the best live and studio sound he has ever had, and the name says it all “crunch” is what it’s all about with a big, tight sound that’s neither muddy nor thin.

The Crunch Lab 7 is noteworthy (bad pun alert) for what it doesnt do its not a screamer, and its not about thundering lows. Its physical appearance is identical to the D Sonic 7, but the internal design is a lot different. Its louder, and the highs have more depth. The lows and mids are more open, and this is crucial for playing chords with body and presence through a gained-out amp. The way the pickup attacks a note is both sharper and stronger, and this allows the Crunch Lab 7 to be installed with the solid bar towards the neck.
