Whether you’re chasing Chet Atkins-esque twang or bashing out Malcolm Young-style rhythms, this Seymour Duncan Psyclone set delivers the vintage-tinged punch and clarity you’re dreaming of. They look the part, too! These humbucking pickups come loaded with double-thickness Alnico V bar magnets for period-correct tones. That said, the bridge is wound a tad hotter, which adds extra muscle and authority to your playing. Psyclone humbuckers boast 4-conductor lead wire for coil-tapped configurations. Best of all, these pickups are a direct replacement for any humbucker-equipped guitar. Restoring a vintage guitar? Building a modern classic? Either way, dropping a set of Psyclones into your instrument is a surefire way to create a one-of-a-kind tone.
Re-creates the distinctive sound of the 1950s-era original
For the Psyclone, Seymour Duncan went to great pains to re-create the distinctive sound of the 1950s-era original. These pickups include tight pole spacing, low DC resistance, and strong magnetism, which results in a tone that falls somewhere between PAF humbucker warmth and single-coil snap. It doesn’t matter what kind of music you’re playing — country, jazz, rock — these vintage-style humbuckers will complement it.
