Seymour Duncan SH-1N '59 Model Neck : Mikka Grytviken's user review
« The perfect all-round! »
I have it for two months but I have used this model at various times on various lutheries. Whether it's a violin like Fender or Gibson micro always behaves well especially in the neck position. I have version four son. I use it with a son in four SH4 in the bridge position. It gives me the perfect couple. By wiring the humbucker sound is very balanced and can sound bluesy or jazzy clean sound. With distortion is very versatile with deep bass and upper mid-range singing. The grain is quite general and organic voice, great sounds to Carlos Santana and Gary Moore. Split the sound is fine and slamming without being aggressive, very nice for bluesy licks or arrangements with a beautiful funky behavior when the game is to the fingers. I prefer it on a violin kind Strato which he can bring a lack of depth due to the violin. On a semi-hollow sounds as though it very well I prefer the SH2 presenting a more balanced and thus opens the possibility that much of his Jazzy Bluesy while the SH1 will only adapt to more Blues Rock less versatile in this case. In conclusion an excellent microphones offering all the qualities of a "PAF" with a little more versatility.
