The campaign includes promoting professional musicians on the Music Heals website.
Los Angeles, CA (April 1, 2020) -- Seymour Duncan has supported helping artists share their musical talents with the world for nearly 45 years. With this highly unusual crisis and with the cancellation of tours and events globally, we are dedicated to helping professional musicians find other ways to thrive. The world needs their music now more than ever.
The Music Heals campaign informally launched the moment tours and music events around the world started getting cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With so much uncertainty for our artists, Seymour Duncan immediately delved into other ways to support them as well as share ways that their fans can help.
The campaign includes promoting professional musicians on the Music Heals website (www.seymourduncan.net/musicheals) by providing links where fans can purchase music, merchandise and lessons from their favorite artists to support them during this time. It also includes a weekly contest called “The Social Woodshed,” where some of the world’s greatest guitarists and bassists present a “playing challenge” to the Seymour Duncan audience. The winner with the best submission receives a virtual lesson from that week’s artist, paid for by Seymour Duncan.
Diana Wilson, CEO of Seymour Duncan notes, “During this challenging and uncertain time, our goal is to support all artists by encouraging their fans to connect with them in innovative new ways. While we might not be able to see our favorite musicians at a live show just yet, we can let them feel our love so they know that when the stage lights come back on, we’ll be in the audience cheering them on. Because, as we all know, there’s nothing like the healing power of music to lift our spirits and heal our souls!”
The Music Heals campaign is open to all professional guitarists and bassists (not just Seymour Duncan artists). We encourage any professional musician feeling the impact of this global crisis to submit their band name and a link where fans can buy their merchandise, music or lessons here: www.seymourduncan.net/musicheals.

Adding to the company’s line of premium-quality effects pedals, Missing Link Audio has unleashed the new AC/Overdrive pedal.

MLA’s new AC/OD absolutely nails the Angus tone from the days of “High Voltage” to "Back in Black”. You can also easily dial inMalcom with the turn of a knob. The pedal covers a broad range of sonic terrain, from boost to hot overdrive to complete tube-like saturation. The pedal is designed to leave on all the time and is very touch responsive. You can get everything from fat rhythm tones to a perfect lead tone just by using your guitar’s volume knob and your right-hand attack.
- Three knobs to control Volume, Gain and Tone

Sporting custom artwork etched onto the covers, the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One Humcutters are designed to offer a fat midrange and a smooth top end.
Billy Corgan was looking for something for heavier Smashing Pumpkins songs, so Joe Naylor designed the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One pickup. Sporting custom artwork etched onto the covers, the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One Humcutters have a fat midrange and a smooth top end. This pickup combines the drive and sustain of a humbucker with the percussive attack and string clarity of a P90. Get beefy P90 tone plus amp-pummeling output with the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One.
Patented Railhammer Pickups take passive guitar pickups to a new level with rails under the wound strings lead to tighter lows, and poles under the plain strings offer fatter heights. With increased clarity, the passive pickup’s tone is never sterile.
