Short clip: Duncan Distortion, in the neck of my Patriot, split.
Distortion Acoustic clip
because of the buzz in the background.
amazing clean sound. very cool, but that might be cos of the split too
As I climb onto your back, I will promise not to sting
I will tell you what you want to hear and not mean anything
Then I treat you like a dog as I shoot my venom in
You pretend you didn't know that I am a scorpion, ya!
Yeah, I think that buzz is a temporary thing. This is the guitar that is missing the bridge pup, and I have a Hipshot on order for. I threw it back together real quick, and I probably left off the bridge ground.
If the computer's turned on, it buzzes. (When split.) Hopefully, my Hipshot will come in soon.
That was really nice Artie!!!!!! It sounds almost acoustic! What kind of rig are you running it through?
Thanks Theodie. I suppose I cheated a little. I run into a DBX163x, (compression off), used just as a buffer, then split into a Johnson J-Station and an older Yamaha FX-500. Both the J and the Yamaha are set on the "acoustic" setting.
But even so, it doesn't mask the basic character of the pup. Just enhances it. For example, if I run my Strat through the exact same settings, it sounds like a Strat.
The Distortion is just so versatile. If I dial in the grunge, it rocks with the best of 'em.
Hey, that sounds good to my ears. Interessting chords as usual

that sounds great!!
Hehe Artie...it was hugely distorted
Clean as a squeack man!
Very pretty chords and nice to hear something from you.
Not gonna miss you know!
Information is not knowledge.
The distortion is one of the most misunderstood and underrated Duncan pickups
"it is a really hard song. it has like 3 different power chords in it. i just learned what power chords are, i thought it was the thing from your amp that you plug in to the wall."
I guess one reason is because of the name they've given it. When one is in search for a pickup and they're not really familiar with the SD line, one would normally pass on it because of the name "Distortion". People easily misjudge it and move on to the next model without even trying it. I don't have an SH-6 on any of my guitars but my 16 year old have it on two of his Ibanez RG's and the SH-6 not only rocks but sings as well. It is a very versatile pickup in my opinion. It's how one uses it. Dimebag Darrell made some of the heaviest riffs out there that became legendary in the metal world with a single Bill Lawrence L-500-XL Humbucker...a pickup designed for JAZZ!!Originally Posted by Xeromus

It sounds very nice...
"Meet the new boss, same as the old boss"
if you put an alnico V magnet in a DD, what duncan would be closest? i'm a bit biased against ceramic magnets i guess, it's probably unfounded lol
An A5 in a DD makes it a JB.
ooooooh *learns* hehe - cheers!
im pretty new to the 'buckers, i've always stuck to the SC sized stuff.. this is interesting
Great sound Artie, a very enjoyable tune and tone.
Ehm , artie?? WHAT did you do to that DIstortion. THe poor pickup sounds like lil puddytat instead of a Roaring Lion
Nice clip, and DEFINITELY shows off the DD´s versatility (that it can do aggressive stuff we all know )
