6-String Nazgûl, Sentient and Pegasus Now Available
Seymour Duncan's latest collection of pickups - Nazgûl, Sentient and Pegasus - have been developed especially for metal guitarists. Handmade in Santa Barbara, California, the Nazgul delivers a high gain growl for the more extreme player whilst the Pegaus offers greater note separation for the more progressive guitarist.
As of now these pickups are now shipping to stores in 6-string versions.
(PRESS RELEASE): You no longer need a seven- or eight-string guitar to enjoy the ruthlessness of the Nazgûl or the enhanced dynamics and string separation of the Pegasus.
The Nazgûl was developed for extreme metal players who required a massive and aggressive tone that still maintained plenty of articulation. The Pegasus was developed for prog and modern metal players who needed plenty of aggression but required enhanced dynamics, more harmonic richness and defined string separation so individual notes don't get lost in the mix.
The perfect complement to both pickups is the Sentient neck pickup, which also is now available in a six-string version. It's voiced to capture a blend of vintage PAF and modern tones with enough output to deliver harmonically rich distorted lead tones but subtle enough to give you deep, detailed cleans. Think of it as combining the best qualities of the '59 Model and the Jazz: clarity, detail, depth, attack and expression.
Each pickup is handwound in Santa Barbara, California, with a black bobbin, black screws and a black logo.
Pegasus: DCR – 12.5k, Res Peak – 5.18kHz
Nazgul: DCR – 13.6k, Res Peak – 4.75kHz
Sentient: DCR – 7.74k, Res Peak – 6.53kHz
