Seymour Duncan Unleashes The Black Winter Pickup
Seymour Duncan Unleashes The Black Winter
The winters in Scandinavia are dark, just like the metal that
comes out of that part of the world. And sometimes, in capturing a
tone suitable for such blackness, guitarists need something with
even more grime and aggression; the right balance of mids, treble
and bass to instantly go from annihilating riffs to articulately
cutting solos. Three ceramic magnets and a special wind produce a
distortion that is crushing with aggressive saturation in the mids
Black Winter was initially developed for the extreme metal
players of Scandinavia and made available in January of this year.
Due to an upswell of calls for its full release, you'll now be able
to get Black Winter at your local music store or favorite online
dealer. Black Winter's look matches its dark intentions: a black
bottom plate, black pole pieces and screws, red wire, and the
Seymour Duncan logo in Old English font.
Available for 6-string guitars, you'll be able to get Black
Winter in either a bridge or neck version or as a complete
calibrated set. For those whose guitar has a tremolo, you'll also
be able to get Black Winter in a Trembucker version for maximum
