Overview

The Seymour Duncan SCR-1 Cool Rails Pickup is like the Hot Rails„¢, but wound to produce a clear, bright, dynamic sound. Hot and loud with punchy single-coil sound for stage work. The SCR-1 is a great pickup on its own and also makes an excellent match with a hot humbucker at the bridge. Specify black or white, neck or bridge. 4-conductor cable.

I put together a strat with a ss configuration. Bridge and neck pickup only with a LP pickup selector and one volume and one tone knob. I'm impressed with the clean sparkle and and the overdriven sounds as well. Both neck and bridge have great definition. No hum and no mud either. With both neck and bridge engaged I can get and awesome Jazzmaster sound. The pickups don't sound like PAFs nor do they sound like a typical SC. Maybe something in between. My only complaint is that I had to drop the neck pickup pretty low to balance the volume with the bridge. I kept the bridge at 6/64 and neck is like 11/64 or so. I typically just set the lowest output pickup to 6/64 and then balance the other's to that. I find that pickups sound better to me at 6/64 or farther. I just have never had to drop a neck pickup so much lower than the bridge when both pickups are the same model. And yes I did make sure the neck pickup was in the neck and the bridge pickup likewise. I went to the SD site and saw that the outputs of the bridge and neck pickups are pretty similar so that may be why. I think most people go with the hit rails in the bridge for this reason.

I purchased one of these for the neck position of a HSS MexiStrat. The other pickups are a Vintage Rails (mid) and a Pearly Gates (bridge). While I adore the rock tone of the PG and the clean tone of the VR, I have yet to find anything this pickup does well. Played clean, it sounds muffled compared to the Vintage Rails. It's overall tone doesn't emulate single coils as well as the Vintage either. With anywhere from mild to high distortion, it has no low or high end, and really isn't capable of decent rhythm sounds. If you're looking at this, you may wish to check out the Vintage Rails as I found it to be a much more capable pickup. Overall, I'm disappointed with this product.

Bad

Comments about Seymour Duncan SCR-1 Cool Rails Pickup:

Don't get a single size humbucker. It defeats the purpose of a Strat. Also this pickup just sounds very bad. SD makes so many amazing sounding true single coil pickups to choose from. Don't get this one. If you need a humbucker then mod your guitar and put a proper humbucker in there but don't get this one. My Strat mini is loaded up with SD antiquity pickups: Jaguar neck, surfer strat mid, mustang bridge. They sound amazing. Either get a true single coil pickup or a real humbucker don't get this one.

Comments about Seymour Duncan SCR-1 Cool Rails Pickup:

I put this pup in the middle position of my Nashville Tele and I absolutely love it. I put the Hot Rails for Tele set in the bridge and neck, and came out with an incredible sounding guitar. I would recommend this pickup for anyone looking to improve their sound.

      Comments about Seymour Duncan SCR-1 Cool Rails Pickup:

      Seymour Duncan is a true MASTER of guitar pickups. And the SCR-1 Cool Rail pickup that I put in my new Fender Strat only made the guitar sound much better. It was what I was looking for in a neck pickup. Although the Cool Rails can be used for any musical genre, the SCR-1 Cool Rails give my Blues playing an extra edgy sound and yet can wail with a Way Huge Swollen Pickle for distortion. "A+". Thanks, Seymour!

      Great, Great Pickup

      By John Nordstrom

      from Minot, ND

      Comments about Seymour Duncan SCR-1 Cool Rails Pickup:

      I was changing out the stock pickups in my American Strat for noiseless ones and I happened upon this pickup while browsing online. I put a hot pickup in the bridge and I was looking for a more mellow tone for the bridge position for a change of pace. I was incredibly impressed with the tone the Cool Rails put out in my Strat. It's a full, warm tone in clean and surprisingly ruthless with heavy gain. Check out the SD website for tone samples to hear for yourself. I'd also recommend the SVR-1 Vintage Rails for the middle position.

      No volume drop out when bending

      By RockAways

      from Stafford, Tx.

      Comments about Seymour Duncan SCR-1 Cool Rails Pickup:

      Tried the Lil' 59er in the neck on my American Strat. It had great tones but when I would bend there were some dead spots. Not sure why the poles are so small. The Cool rails took care of all the dead spots. You can bend all day long and no volume drop out! Great tone! It is EQ'd almost flat so where you place it in your guitar will set the tone. It is nice and hot but not too hot like the Hot rail. The hot rail is almost too hot. The Cool rail is perfect because it cleans up crystal clear. Can not go wrong with this p/u. I put bought the hotter bridge and placed it in the neck. Might want to consider it. With the blade design the string spacing won't matter.

      Rail-ly cool (hee hee)

      By (write funny name here)

      from Tempe, AZ

      Comments about Seymour Duncan SCR-1 Cool Rails Pickup:

      It's not bad, but voiced more for jazz than anything else. It's really dark and kind of muddled. I put it in the mid in my Strat to compliment a Hot Rails in the bridge (great pickup for Strats and especially Teles, by the way). Think I might coil tap it to get a brighter mid position. Also, be careful with the output of this pickup. I have a Seymour Duncan Five-Two in the neck, which sounds great, but it's significantly quieter than both of the rails, so switching between the pickups can be a hassle.

      Great Addition

      By Bigsmooth82

      from Vancouver, BC

      Comments about Seymour Duncan SCR-1 Cool Rails Pickup:

      I threw this pick up in the neck position of my mexican telecaster and it sounds fantastic! With the single coil in the bridge, this pickup gives me a very diverse variety of tones and is an extremely cost effective way of a making a cheap, solid-body guitar sound much more expensive! A very nice addition for guitarists of any style.
