Jeff Loomis and Seymour Duncan Introduce Noumenon Humbuckers

Jeff Loomis guitarist

Seymour Duncan introduces Jeff Loomis Noumenon Signature Humbuckers, inspired by Jeff's early metal tone experiences with passive pickups. Available with Alnico 8 magnets for high output on 6-string and Alnico 5 magnets for tight low end on 7-string.

Before active pickups like his signature Blackouts became synonymous with Jeff Loomis’ sound in Nevermore, Arch Enemy, and his solo work, Jeff’s foundational experiences in sculpting his highly influential metal tone were forged by passive humbuckers, bought from guitar catalogs in the 1980s. The Noumenon Signature Humbuckers call back to those formidable years, as Jeff wanted an option to achieve the dynamics and control that passive pickups offer.

The 7-string set is built with Alnico 5 magnets, necessary for maintaining tight low end and sharp attack. All Jeff Loomis Noumenon Signature Humbuckers are available with triangular feet bottom plates for standard humbucker routes and direct mounting in Jeff’s signature guitars.
