About This Listing

SH-6 Duncan Distortion

Summary

Our original high output ceramic humbucker, the Duncan Distortion bridge model is perfect for rock and metal players.

Description

Launched in 1980, the Duncan Distortion is our original high output humbucker. We use a massive ceramic magnet and hot coil windings to deliver full-bodied rock and metal tones with powerful upper mids for extra cut and grind. It’s great for hard-hitting, crunchy rhythms, and the lead tones scream with wild harmonics. It also remains tight with low tunings. The matching Duncan Distortion neck pickup is the perfect partner for complementary lead and rhythm tones, or pair it with a Jazz neck model for a wider range of sounds.

Handcrafted in our Santa Barbara, CA factory, the Duncan Distortion uses a large ceramic bar magnet, nickel silver bottom plate, 4-conductor lead wire for multiple wiring options and is vacuum wax potted for squeal-free performance.

Output
  • DCR:16.6
  • Magnet:Ceramic
  • Cable:4c Shielded
SH-1N 59 Model (single conductor)
Summary

A vintage-voiced, extremely versatile neck pickup that pairs well with most bridge humbuckers.

Description

The ’59 Model neck pickup is one of our most popular pickups because it’s so versatile. It’s designed in the spirit of the original P.A.F. humbuckers of the 1950s, with sweet sustain, full-sounding chords, clear and bright attack, but we’ve made a few refinements to slightly modernize the design and make it more adaptable to different styles.

The ’59 has a full low end which is great for adding character to your clean sounds and sustain to your leads. The high end is slightly boosted for improved pick-attack clarity and the mids are a little scooped for an open, smooth sound that’s great for preserving the clarity of the individual notes in a chord. Play softly and the mids and highs seem to fade back, but pick hard and the note will be confident and clear. There isn’t a genre that the ’59 can’t work within. It pairs nicely with a high output bridge humbucker like the JB or Custom but is equally at home with more moderate pickups like the ’59 bridge. And it’s a popular choice for those with humbucker-routed Telecasters as well. And if you order a four-conductor version for coil splitting, its single coil mode is crystal clear.

The ’59 Model neck pickup is wound on Seymour’s Leesona 102 pickup winding machine, the very one that was used in the Gibson factory in Kalamazoo, MI in the 1950s. It comes standard with a long-legged nickel silver bottom plate, vintage single conductor braided push back lead wire and no logo.
