Seymour Duncan releases a set of humbuckers and preamp recommended for all metal and heavy rock styles 15-Nov-11
Seymour Duncan tells us that this matched set of two traditionally constructed humbuckers and a battery-powered Blackouts dual preamp was created for Gus G, (Ozzy Osbourne, Firewind), who wanted the power of active pickups without sacrificing the hair-trigger response of his favorite Seymour Duncan passive pickups.
Gus had this to say, "This system combines the massive tone, kick, and distortion of Blackouts with the rich tone and expressive feel of my favorite passive pickups. It responds perfectly to all my picking techniques, and more of my personality comes through than with any active pickup I've tried."
The complete setup includes two humbuckers and a high-output, low-noise Blackouts dual preamp that replaces one of your volume pots. It uses a bare-wire lockdown system, so no soldering is required if replacing active pickups and also includes three 25K potentiometers for players migrating from a passive setup, plus all necessary hardware.
