Seymour Duncan Distortion Mayhem SH-6 Humbucker Pa

If you want a heavy but clear tone, these are your pickups. I put these in one of my guitars and the sound was amazing. Highly recommended if you play heavy music.

Eh...

this pickup sound REALLY good with a alder body. ash body. basically a bright or LIGHT sounding guitar, if your guitar is basswood mahogany or a DEEP sounding guitar dont grab this set....Read complete review

this pickup sound REALLY good with a alder body. ash body. basically a bright or LIGHT sounding guitar, if your guitar is basswood mahogany or a DEEP sounding guitar dont grab this set. its got bass, not a deep solid warm note. but bass so doesnt really chug,it BUMPS unless u mess with the eq but might loose power. this is a great upgrade from stock pups really good for metal rock and alternative its a general ceramic high output bassy pickup. ONLY 3 STARS because the sh6 bridge is awesome but the neck is to slushy and harsh. go with liquifire/JB/59/59-CUSTOM ALL SOUND GOOD WITH THE SH6 BRIDGE

By O.B.

Comments about Seymour Duncan Distortion Mayhem SH-6 Humbucker Pair:

i was a little skeptical when i got these pickups i thought they were going to be a little two aggressive when i installed them wow you can get every tone you can think of the neck is really warm perfect for that slash kind of sound the bridge has a lot of bite and clarity(coheed and cambria sound) both of the pickups combined sound amazing i highly recommend this pickups for any style of music oh yea the bad thing these pickups can pickup can hear that sound when your finger goes up or down the strings i also recommend ernie balls power slinky with these pickups harmonics are amazing

Awesome Pick-ups

By Joe Izzo

from Glen Allen, Va

Comments about Seymour Duncan Distortion Mayhem SH-6 Humbucker Pair:

I put them in my Epiphone Les Paul Custom and they rule. The noise cancelling feature is really nice, and the tone is unbeatable. Even though they are indeed made for metal, they put out a crisp clean sound.

Great set of pickups from seymour duncan

By Testament=BestMetalBandEver

from Chicago IL

Comments about Seymour Duncan Distortion Mayhem SH-6 Humbucker Pair:

This is an absolute great set of pickups to replace muddier low end pickups. i have a set of these in my Epiphone Les Paul Standard Ebony. the sound i can get now is great. the most notable differences are as follows 1. Noticeable increase in overall volume. 2. Clarity of the notes makes your single note lines pop and your chords dont fall apart into mush. 3. these pickups are HOT pickups. Harmonics ring out alot louder and are easier to bring out. my original concern was that since they were a set i thought there would not be a big difference in tone between the bridge and neck positions. WRONG. now my neck position sounds great and the way it should, a warm creamy type of tone. bridge position feeds back on demand and has alot of crunch and bite to it. these pickups can also get a good clean tone, just be sure to use your volume and tone controls on the guitar since these pickups are very responsive and expressive. Highly satisfied with my purchase and i will be looking to put seymour duncans in my next guitar, those blackouts seem promising... Props to the people at Seymour duncan for another great product.

Best passives

By kurt

from jackson alabama

Comments about Seymour Duncan Distortion Mayhem SH-6 Humbucker Pair:

I put the sh-6 set in my Gibson SG Special and am totally glad I did. Forget active EMGs, these are plenty loud, very clean, and dont require battery replacement. Battery powered pickups are lame, these rock.

Wow

By TJ

from Oklahoma

Comments about Seymour Duncan Distortion Mayhem SH-6 Humbucker Pair:

I just purchased these pickups about two weeks ago and they are awesome. I have an Epiphone Les Paul and they sound amazing in it. If you think of distortion pickups as just heavy and you can barely hear the sound because of all of the overdrive these pickups will change that. These pickups are extremely clear and the suit every kind of music that i play. I highly recommend the Seymour Duncan Distortion Mayhem Set.

SH-6 Humbucker Pickups

By Dave

from Raleigh, North Carolina

Comments about Seymour Duncan Distortion Mayhem SH-6 Humbucker Pair:

Great pickup for a "metal" style of playing. The lower tones are really brought out and the higher tones are much more crisp. Pinch harmonics are more defined with these pickups as well. A great investment for your guitat.

Awesome!

By Daniel King

from Roy, UT

Comments about Seymour Duncan Distortion Mayhem SH-6 Humbucker Pair:

I installed this set into my ESP LTD F-50 and I have never regretted it. They give a crisp clean sound and when I turn on the distortion these babies did NOT disappoint. I love to play Fuel by Metallica on these, but I also will play various others like Disturbed,Hail the Villain, Coheed and Cambria, and attempted Protest the Hero.

Comments about Seymour Duncan Distortion Mayhem SH-6 Humbucker Pair:

i got these pickups yesterday, and i put them in my gibson studio les paul. they sound so much better than the gibson 490R and 498T. they have great highs,mids, and lows. if you want to play music that is on the clean channel you would need to tweak your eq. i highly recomend these because they are amazing
