Seymour Duncan Announces Worldwide Launch of 'Whole Lotta Humbucker'

Over a year ago Seymour Duncan launched the Whole Lotta Humbucker set as a limited edition UK exclusive. This set was based off Seymour's experience working at the Fender Soundhouse with artists like Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page and many others.

Seymour recalls, "When I'd work on one of those great old guitars for a client, I liked to rewind the pickups with 42-gauge plain-enamel wire. I'd also insert sand-cast Alnico magnets with a better-balanced magnetic field, which made the B and high E sound as powerful as the other strings. This modified pickup had more output and a higher frequency response.

 

 

The Whole Lotta Humbucker set is a replica of these special pickups with 8.78k DC resistance for the bridge pickup, 8.20k for the neck, custom winding pitch, and a calibrated sand-cast Alnico magnet. I have such great memories of living in London, so I'm thrilled to be producing this pickup once again." Guitar players around the world who are looking to capture the tone of an era will now be able to get Whole Lotta Humbucker at their local store or favorite online dealer.
