All the snap and sparkle of a vintage Filter’Tron, with a smoother, fuller character perfect for high output applications.
Like a classic car, sometimes stock just isn’t good enough. When you love the classic curves but need more horsepower under the hood, that’s where the Psyclone Hot comes in.
The Seymour Duncan Psyclone Hot neck takes the distinctive sound of the original Filter’Tron pickups and supercharges it. Punchy mid-range, tight low-end, and smooth treble combine with the higher output to deliver a pickup perfect for rock, new wave, punk, and psychobilly.
Originally designed in our Custom Shop, we took special care when sourcing materials to ensure the look and fit of the pickups are perfect – whether you’re hot-rodding a vintage guitar, or dropping them in a modern classic.
The Psyclone Hot neck is a drop in replacements for any guitar routed for Filter’Tron style pickups, and includes the correct hardware for either direct mount or pickup-ring mounting options.
Psyclone is hum cancelling and uses single conductor lead wire. Each Psyclone pickup is handmade in Santa Barbara, CA.
