Seymour Duncan Announces the High Voltage Humbuckers

The High Voltage humbucker set was developed for one of rock’s most iconic and devilish guitarists.

Santa Barbara, CA (October 17, 2016) -- Seymour Duncan, a leading manufacturer of pickups and pedals, announces the High Voltage humbucker set. They are currently available exclusively from the Seymour Duncan Custom Shop.

The High Voltage humbucker set was developed for one of rock’s most iconic and devilish guitarists. It’s a very bluesy, clean-sounding pickup set with tight low end and just a hair more output than traditional '50s humbuckers.

One of the keys to the High Voltage sound is the selection of specifically calibrated Alnico II magnets to provide an even response between the bridge and neck pickups. The neck pickup is wound to a DC resistance of 7.7k, with the bridge wound a little hotter at 8.6k for a little more sonic T.N.T.

The High Voltage humbucker set features lightly aged chrome covers prepared with a unique process that differs from the aged nickel of our Antiquity humbuckers. Other options are available, with the set starting at $300.00.

Drop a set in an SG, plug it into a Marshall, flick the switch and prepare to rock.
