The Sound of Alnico IV Humbuckers Saturday Night Special

Posted on by Jayla Siciliano

The Saturday Night Special humbucker set uses Alnico 4 magnets to deliver that authentic 70s sound. https://www.seymourduncan.com/pickup/saturday-night-special-set

Unlike traditional humbuckers, the Saturday Night Special humbuckers are voiced to be a little hotter and fatter in the bridge position, and a little clearer and less “wooly” in the neck. They’re more aggressive than 50s-style models, but without the compression of most high gain pickups. These bridge the output level gap between vintage 50s and modern humbuckers.

The Saturday Night Special Set is made in Santa Barbara, California. They come standard with four-conductor wiring, maple spacer and short mounting legs. Available with nickel covers, gold covers, black uncovered bobbins and Zebra uncovered bobbins.

Also sold as separate neck and bridge pickups.
