The Black Winter was originally created for the extreme metal players of Scandinavia who were looking for more aggression without sacrificing definition and clarity. They give you a tightness with plenty of mids and clear highs for articulation and underlying saturation – perfect for many forms of metal. The neck pickup is particularly prized for its versatility, great sustain and cleans with plenty of chime that can sometimes be unusual for a high-output pickup using Ceramic magnets. Seymour Duncan is happy to announce you’ll now be able to get all the heavy saturation, articulation and aggression of the Black Winter in your 6, 7 or 8 string axe.
The cosmetics are exactly what you’d expect from a pickup named Black Winter: a black bottom plate, black pole pieces and screws, blood red wire, and the Seymour Duncan logo in Old English font. Black Winter 6, 7 and 8 string versions are available in either a bridge or neck version or in a complete calibrated set. Each pickup comes in 4-conductor and is built by hand in the Seymour Duncan Factory in Santa Barbara, CA.
