Seymour Duncan has introduced the Nazgûl pickup. A spokesperson told us,
"It's not just a pickup, it's a weapon of tonal Armageddon. The Nazgûl was designed with a single purpose; for intense high-output-chug heavy punch-you-in-the-chest ruthless distortion. The tone is heavy and aggressive but it also retains articulation and provides the precise pick attack that is necessary for high-output metal. The Nazgûl gives chords heavy saturation and produces a lightning fast response to your amp. Perfect for all high output metal needs in which sonic obliteration needs to be accomplished."
The Nazgûl is available for 7 and 8 string players and also comes in an active mount (soapbar) sizing for those who own a guitar that originally came with active pickups but prefer the tone of passive pickups. To help achieve its aggressive tone it uses a strong Ceramic Bar magnet and has a DC resistance of 16.5k (7-string) and 18.7k (8-string).
