Searing Pickups for Unrelenting Tonal Chaos
The Black Winter guitar pickup by Seymour Duncan is not for the faint of heart. Named after the song "Black Winter Day" by Finnish metal band Amorphis, these passive humbuckers are primed and ready for sonic destruction. Designed specifically for black metal, death metal, and grindcore, these pickups conjure the murkiest depths of heavy tone with sinister results, with custom overwound coils to maximize both output and clarity.
Chainsaw brutality captured in a passive pickup
Designed to handle metal's most extreme subgenres, Black Winter humbuckers are the right pickups to take your tone to the next level. Available as an individual neck humbucker, a standard-spaced bridge humbucker, a Trembucker bridge, and as a set, these pickups are perfectly calibrated right out of the box with a passive, high-output design that's tailor-made for extreme playing styles. Whether you play earth-shattering riffs or head-splitting leads, these pickups will deliver.
Extreme metal-inspired cosmetics: now blacker than ever
To match their unrelenting force, Blackened Black Winter pickups sport custom cosmetics that look just as sharp as the sound they pump out. The Seymour Duncan logo has been blacked out and is written in an Old English font — an unapologetic ode to the metal forefathers who inspired these humbuckers — and features a matte finish, a black bottom plate, black poles, and black screws for an added dose of darkness.
