Seymour Duncan TB-12 George Lynch Screamin' Demon
George Lynch designed the Screamin Demon with Seymour Duncan when he realized that you don't need a super high output pickup in your guitar to get singing, high gain tones. He preferred that the amp do more of the work.

The Demon is a P.A.F. type of pickup with a little added growl in the mids. I was quite young and inexperienced when I bought this pickup. I should've done my homework first. At the time I was looking for a super high output pup, and had heard some pretty heavy Lynch tones so naturally after hearing a name like "Screamin Demon" I though this pup would rip! Haha...not so much.

The tone from this pickup is very touch sensitive and there are some very nice harmonics and overtones to be had, but you have to work for them. I first tried this pup in an Alder bodied Washburn Dimebag darrell signature guitar. It was not a good fit at all. The Alder didn't compliment the pickup well, and there was a very disconnected feeling that I got. Less than inspiring to say the least. I then tried it in my Les Paul and it was much better. I kept it there for awhile, but ultimately gave it to my buddy, who installed it in a mahogany super-strat and it sounds great with his Mark IV rig, go figure.
This is really for the player who likes subtle textures and ringing chords. I've grown up and changed a lot as a player, and I think I would like this pup now if it was tweaked to have a bit more output.

Classic rock guitarists will love this pup, as well as old school lead players and blues and fusion guys. But shredders who like the guitar to sing effortlessly and play itself, look elsewhere as you'll struggle to make this Demon scream.

Seymour Duncan TB-12 George Lynch Screamin' Demon
I use it for almost one year now.
I had a EMG 81 before and I was a little drunk by his (very high output level). So I contacted my luthier, I explained my problem to him and he said, "Listen, the TB12 Seymour should be what you seek.". So I got one on order Warmoth (which is the way a great site! With FREE return possible) and I am brought up on my strat (Jim Root Sig). And then, oh miracle! What the! I "connected" with Sh 1N neck and is the perfect complement. The Screamin Demon has a really great sound. I can play with everything. The sound of Tornado of Souls? Perfect! Whole Lotta Love? Perfect! If I go down the volume, Wonderful Tonight? Perfect too! This mic provides an amazing sound range!
Good value for money. And I do it again this choice without hesitation.
If you are looking for a versatile humbucker, friends shredders, and other bluesmen, this mic is for you!

Seymour Duncan TB-12 George Lynch Screamin' Demon
Aaaaaah this famous Screamin Demon
Alnico humbucker dvellopp for George Lynch, I bought the three months ago and I did the essay and a yamaha PAC821D Submitted on strato United States
It is a microphone, I think is really as it should ... well all right, good output, excellent rendering of the attack, good sustain with distortion and it is so flexible that by reducing the volume and by attacking too hard, you get to do a clean channel distortion ( lamps in any case because I have not tried the amp on a transistor) But what impressed me the most is its precision both in attack arpges tremolo style death metal.
I find it more versatile than my DiMarzio Air Classic and cleaner than the Duncan Custom TB-5.
Hsitiez if you buy it I would say that we should not in any case because of a personal point of view, it gives me satisfaction Entire.

Good mditation
