DiMarzio has introduced the Titan pickups designed for Periphery guitarist, Jake Bowen. Here's what they have to say...
Jake Bowen is one of the new generation of guitarists on the cutting edge of progressive rock. His sound is helping to redefine rock guitar, and his pickups play a major part. The Titan Neck and Bridge Model pickups were developed for his new signature guitar by Ibanez.
The Titan Neck Model pickup is punchy and fat sounding, yet can handle multiple layers of effects without getting muddy. Jake says, "When I switch to leads, I go to the neck pickup which gives me more rounded notes and more attack. I also go to the neck pickup for cleans, depending on what my needs are".
Jake's bridge pickup is crucial to his sound, and the most important feature is that it needed to be tight. It also needed to have good dynamics for right-hand playing yet still keep the aggressiveness and mid-range that Periphery's music calls for. The Titan Bridge Model is at home with both standard and dropped tunings. Additionally, Jake shares that "it's a very tight, aggressive palm-muted sound when I do palm-muting strokes but -- when I play open chords -- everything rings out very nicely".
