SANTA BARBARA, CA, March 7, 2016 – Seymour Duncan, a leading manufacturer of pickups and pedals, announces the release of their new Jeff Loomis Signature Blackouts™ series of active humbucker pickups. This series consists of high–output active humbuckers developed to deliver the dynamic performance unique to active pickups, with the look, tone and feel of a great set of passive pickups.
“It’s an honor to be a part of the Seymour Duncan family,” said Jeff Loomis, guitarist in Arch Enemy and Conquering Dystopia. “With the design my new signature pickup, we’ve created a set that’s extremely rich in harmonic tones for leads and pick attack, and carries a tight low end for rhythm playing. This pickup is perfect for anyone trying to emulate my hard riffs.”
“After carefully crafting these pickups to Jeff’s specification, we asked him to take the prototypes on tour with Arch Enemy and put them to the test,” said Max Gutnik, SVP of products and CRO at Seymour Duncan. “After months of collaboration, we’re excited for guitarists to experience the tone and feel these signature Blackouts deliver.”
The Jeff Loomis Signature Blackouts are available in 6 and 7-string passive mount versions with black brushed nickel covers, as well as an active mount 7-string soapbar version.
The Jeff Loomis Signature Blackouts series is available now. For more information, please visit seymourduncan.com.
