Seymour Duncan offers many different pickups for many different kinds of players, and a lot of the time those pickups are built with a particular tonal mission in mind: a pickup for blues, for hard rock, for jazz. But perhaps the most specific ‘genre’ pickup in the Seymour Duncan catalog is the Black Winter. This…
“It feels like a real amp” is a big claim made by a lot of pedals, but our engineering team has worked themselves to exhaustion to really nail the sound and response of a real amp when developing the Palladium Gain Stage.
Last week we packed up and headed down to Anaheim, California for the 2016 Winter NAMM Show. We had a great time meeting with artists, dealers and media, and letting folks try out brand-new gear like the Catalina Dynamic Chorus and Palladium Gain Stage pedals at our pedal testing stations.
Periphery’s Mark Holcomb and special guest Keith Merrow will join us on our forum on Monday June 22 for a live Q&A about Mark’s new signature pickups.

It patched things up between Mork and Mindy when things were looking a little rough. It likes long walks by the swamp. REAL long walks. It was the one who nicknamed John Wayne ‘The Duke.’ It’s SLUG.
So you’ve spent countless late nights recording guitar parts and drowning in the strongest coffee to release some killer new tracks, and then after finally coming upon the finished format you’re faced with the decision as to what file format and bitrate to use when you present your music to the world.
