Overview

The Seymour Duncan SH-13 Dimebucker is an electric guitar pickup that helps you make your own metal massacre tone. It uses a powerful ceramic magnet coupled with stainless steel blades to generate a take-no-prisoners attitude. The secret to Dime's crunch is the small amount of metal mass in the core of the pickup. This allows both high D.C. resistance and a high resonant peak. The result: a high-output, aggressive humbucker with lots of treble bite and clarity, combined with punchy bass response and exceptional dynamics. The SH13 Dimebucker is perfect for hard rock and heavy metal.

Features
  • Powerful ceramic magnet coupled with stainless steel blades generates take-no-prisoners tonality
  • Small metal mass in core produces aggressive, high-output with treble bite and clarity, and punchy bass response
Warranty
MANUFACTURER'S WARRANTY
One year replacement warranty on all pickups.

I have EMG 81's in my guitars and dimebuckers.... the dimebuckers actually sound like they have a higher output than the EMG's... Really nice metal tone. I'm just in a straight heavy metal band but this would be an amazing death metal pickup also. Speed picking and fast riffs sound really good on this thing.

Long Live Dimebag!

By Quigibo

from IN a house

Comments about Seymour Duncan SH-13 Dimebucker Pickup:

This pickup NEEDS POWER! If you have a weak preamp, this pickup might not be for you. If you have a preamp that can pump some high gain, you will find that you can get those super ultra evil feedback pinch harmonics like the king. We miss ya Dimebag, thanks for a cool pickup!

Great for metal

By ibanez1357

from Buffalo NY

Comments about Seymour Duncan SH-13 Dimebucker Pickup:

I've had the Dimebucker in my Ibanez for a couple years now and i have a couple things to say first being that the pinch harmonics you can get out of this thing are insane very defined and strong, and also even though being a heavy metal pickup you can still hear all of the notes clear there is no mudding going on here! One warning though, this pickup sounds very different depending on the wood of your guitar so be sure that it's not made out of cheap wood so you can get the full potential out of it. If you are a metal player and are looking for a very strong pickup I reccommend this, It will be in my guitar forever.

BEASTER FOR TONE QUALITY

By Tyler

from Texas

Comments about Seymour Duncan SH-13 Dimebucker Pickup:

I just recently installed this pickup in my Schecter C-1 Plus as a replacement for a Duncan Designed HB-102 and there is no comparison. This pickup destroys my old Duncan Designed pickup. Its got some amazing tone quality coupled with destructive pinch harmonics to make it one hell of a beast.

Not what I expected but still great

By jmexia

from DFW area TX

Comments about Seymour Duncan SH-13 Dimebucker Pickup:

I went to my local guitar shop looking for an L500R. They didn't have any but the owner insisted that I try a Dimebucker. I figured it was just a copy of the L500R. I got it and wired it into my trusty Ibanez and was a little disapointed at first. I didnt like the tone. It has too much treble and too crunchy for style of music my band plays. Its not an L500R. If you want to sound like "PANTERA Dime" dont buy this. If you want Damage Plan Dime then get it. That being said, once I realized that I started changing all my settings around realy started to love this Pup. Its one of the hottest passive pups i have used. It sounds killer clean and under high gain you can squeal harmonics like mad, but it realy shines when you lay down some classic riffs with a little dirty overdrive. You can shread on this dont get me wrong, It just dosnt have the lowend I was looking for. It may just be my set up. I ended up putting it into a Mexican Strat and couldnt be happier with it. Again, If you want the pantera sound Buy an L500R. If you want a great Pup with a high output, great cleans and crisp solos under high gain, then buy this.

BEST PICK UP BETTER... YOU NEED IT!!

By Ro

from Marietta, GA

Comments about Seymour Duncan SH-13 Dimebucker Pickup:

While everyone claims it has low bass levels... it gets more bass than my neck pick up and my old bridge pick up don't even come close to the bass it gets... the treble? Amazing!! Harmonics? Incredible, sustained, and clear! Response? Active like clear!! ALL I CAN SAY IS WOW!! DIMEBAG WOULD BE PROUD!!!!

The best purchase I have made in years!!

By WickedFingers247

from Wichita K.S.

Comments about Seymour Duncan SH-13 Dimebucker Pickup:

I purchased this at the recomendation of my G.C. Rep. After becoming frustrated buying item after item to get the sound I was after I finally took his advice and bought the Dimebucker SH-13 pickup. Man next time I see him I am going to hug him! I am amazed with the sound quality of this pickup, It is heavy but at the same time clean. When playing single notes they ring out and do not get muddy and pinch harmonics take on a whole new life with this pickup! I previously had a Duncan detonator in my bridge position But I moved it to the neck and put this in the bridge slot. Theoreticly the neck pickup should have been louder than the dimebucker (It is wound hot for bridge position) But there is still a noticeable gain when switching to the Dimebucker! For a passive pickup you will not find a better buy in my opinion. I would even rate this higher than some of the active's that I have owned. Seymour Duncan makes these by hand here in the usa so you know they are commited to quality with this pickup and it shows it in every aspect and then some.
