      Seymour Duncan Blackouts AHB-1 Humbucker Set (301007)
Availability:  


Blackout the bad hum, crank up the tone.

Seymour Duncan Blackouts are 9-volt active neck and bridge humbuckers that provide more extended frequency response with less compression. Seymour Duncan engineers have captured the tone players want in an active design with the benefits of balanced inputs.

Not only do Seymour Duncan Blackouts active humbuckers have less hum than most active humbuckers, they also have more lows, more highs, and more output. Simply put, the Blackouts have more tone than most active pickups. Players will find far fewer problems with hum, especially near computer monitors and fluorescent lighting.

Blackouts come as a two-pickup set of neck and bridge humbuckers. All versions come with all necessary mounting hardware, including pots, jack, and a battery clip.

  • Very Hot!

    As reviewed by Shanobi on 7/11/2009

    Here's the deal. These pickups are great. Super hot! When they say you may need to adjust your amp's gain, they're not kidding. Noticeably more gain compared to my other Les Paul with EMG 81. It'll take some re-tweaking of your amp's settings to dial them in to your liking. Best bet is to put these in all your guitars so you can leave your amp settings untouched. They have a slightly warmer and deeper tone than the EMG and like I said, hotter as well. It's hard to get used to turning the gain down on the amp but it is useful to avoid excess feedback. I'm not saying they're better than EMG, but do give you a different sound. The one gripe I have, and be forewarned Les Paul owners, they DON'T COME WITH THE LONG SHAFT POTS! They require you to call and order them (I recommend calling. I didn't get a response from email). They send them free of charge, but it's the fact that you have to wait to get them that sucks. So don't expect to buy the set and drop 'em in your Les Paul that day. Plan ahead. If you order online, then order the pots when you receive them, it could take nearly 2 weeks before you can install them (depending on your location). So plan ahead and call customer service (ext. 501). But I do recommend these pickups.

  • Best Active Pickups Out There

    As reviewed by Blackk on 4/18/2011

    These pickups are incredible. There is really no other way to describe them. I put them in my Les Paul Studio, and it gives you a insane tone. With distortion, it sounds HUGE, and on a clean setting, it gives out perfect, warm tones. I have never heard better pickups, and will never use other pickups again.

  • About as loud as it gets

    As reviewed by Will Kroeker on 10/16/2008

    Before I tried Seymour Duncan Blackouts, I'd always lean towards DiMarzios for their infamous high gain lively tones and clarity. Now I don't think I'll be getting anything but Seymour Duncans now thanks to this pickup. I ran into one a bit ago and thought "hell, why not try it out" since I had heard soo many good things about them, and bought it on a whim. Well, it turns out that was more than a good decision on my side. These pickups kick ass, and they're soo powerful that I had to drop my gain on my pedal by half. As for installing them, if you know how to work a soldering iron and wire a guitar, it's about as easy as it gets. It seems the secret behind the buzz reduction is the balanced output, which is pretty cool. I only get buzz around my massive CRT, and when I stand away from it, it's pure silence, even by my TV oddly, which baffles me. As compared to EMGs, these things blow them away, give them a shot.
