    The perfect humbucker

    Power, clarity, note well articulated harmonics insane.

    A kind of HS-8 much cleaner, if the grain is like many mid, treble and bass less charged the SH-8, which gives a much better definition of the game

    This is actually a HS-8 with low / high stats reversed.

    I rode on a BC Rich Stealth, which was fitted to a Dimarzio X2N, it was nice but big lack of clarity and total missing especially medium.

    I have long played on SH-8, I was looking about the same microphone more clean, especially the typical grain Seymour Duncan.

    It took time before testing the HS-6 because I have never found its output level, finally I still do not know but hard as the SH-8 even if the output level on pa…

    It took time before testing the HS-6 because I have never found its output level, finally I still do not know but hard as the SH-8 even if the output level on paper I think less.

    I had tested many micro series and professional ones I actually played are the EMG which I totally forgot rendering, although I remember it seems to me that it was not too, the BC Rich, HS-8, X2N and lately the SH-6.

    Metalheads for power and clarity while having a rocky grain.

    Get SEYMOUR HS-6

    Very tight, great metal pickup!!!

    Seymour Duncan SH-6B Duncan Distortion BridgePublished on 05/01/12 at 17:11
    I bought this in black, G spaced, and installed it in an ibanez xiphos XPT750. These have a ceramic magnet and have 6 slugs on one side and 6 flat head screws on the other. Slugs give off more low end and thickness while flat heads give more aggressiveness, along with some brightness. Ceramic magnets make them brighter and more modern sounding. They are a higher output pickup designed for hard rock and metal (hence the name, duncan distortion). They have very tight low end, which is crucial for faster metal styles. Some complain they are a bit too bright but I thought they were great. I had them in a mahogany guitar so that smoothed out the high end a bit. These are very tight and have …

They are a higher output pickup designed for hard rock and metal (hence the name, duncan distortion). They have very tight low end, which is crucial for faster metal styles. Some complain they are a bit too bright but I thought they were great. I had them in a mahogany guitar so that smoothed out the high end a bit. These are very tight and have great grind to them. They're aggressive but still smooth enough to sound great for bluesy leads and cleans. They also work great for low tunings. I had the xiphos at times tuned to B standard and these remained tight and articulate. Didn't flub out or get muddy. I play mostly modern metal similar to Machine Head and this works great for that. It handles the low tuning great, very clear with good definition. It’s thick sounding, although not as thick as a Duncan Invader, but still thick. It’s rumored that Kirk Hammett had one in the bridge of his black Gibson Flying V in the early to mid 80s with MetallicA. I can’t verify that so I’m not stating it as a fact. But regardless this pickup is great for all styles of music but really shines for metal. Also Dimebag Darrell of Pantera had one of these in his 1979 Dean ML standard, nicknamed “rock n roll over”, but more commonly known now as the FBD (far beyond driven) ML. He had a L500XL in there for a while but currently it sits with a Duncan Distortion.
    I'd recommend these to anyone, even outside metal, looking for a very tight pickup that excels at high gain and low tunings.

    Micro ceramic pads (one row adjustable), gain level a bit higher than the average of the usual neck pickups ..

    I tested it in neck and bridge (in its TB-6), a known Lag (lime) and Jackson (alder).
    All in my usual rig (TriAx '2:90 and 1960A).

    For this advice, I put it only in neck (I will post a notice for the latest TB-6), coupled with a DiMarzio Evolution, a DiMarzio X2N, a Duncan TB-6 and a Bill Lawrence 500XL. Yes, given the nature of the beast, put a microphone "nice" in the bridge is a little inappropriate. In short.

    This microphone has a frequency response with a good dip in the midrange, from the outset. It is felt in clean: the sound is not as fat, round or smooth than other mics I've ever had, Duncan Jazz and '59, DiMarzio PAF Pro, and even the EMG 81 and 85.

    It is even fairly rich in high frequencies. I was surprised that it was more singing and sounded better in the neck, with more presence and definition that the 500XL and laid in X2N bridge!
    Evo in a bridge is something else, as the Evo is one of acute burning fat all by itself.

    In clean, it may do the trick, if it has led the typed response curve. It is not ridiculous.

    His thing is the big crunch and distos, where he is very good. He is singing, harmonic sound easy, the sound is there, from the outset. It does not bleed too much, in addition, unlike the '59 and Jazz.
    Funny, I finally found one that I really like Duncan!

    Finally, the grain goes well with the two guitars I had on hand for my little test. It sounds different but very bieng on both.

    Finally, yep, this microphone was really over, and I think I'll keep it on my chtite Jackson, history of having a different sound of my other guitars. He currently is part of my favorite passive pickups, DiMarzio PAF Pro with and Fred!

    saturated sound: while there (it's a matter of taste) it is my nirvana, the gain level is enormous, the sound is clear and not drool ca. the grave is well above the medium feel and know to be acute kan must. with this micro g reunited after a few adjustments of its legendary like metallica, slayer, acdc, through the current stuff as SOAD or static-x. the followers of serious tuning will be happy because this mic been expected. Korn and Fear Factory, I found I was myself. I am always amazed because it is a passive pickup and I wonder what it must be given if it makes the asset. Finally ..... a good power chord, solo, rhythm, everything passes, I'm not disappointed and this microphone to the particularity of being very extreme sometimes see a little too much for some, I do it again without hézité this choice, but be careful is a microphone that is made especially for metal, that's vocation, I put 9 because the clear sound have a slight saturation

    Finally I found him in time force a certain charm sound, with good relief in the harmonic mdiums but always too many for me. J'hsite still pass the DiMarzio DP100 carrment to finally accder a big sound without doubt dtriement sounds clear and precision. For now I concervé until the arrival of my Mesa rack to see how it behaves then I will notify cetain to change.

    DEFINITIONS In INTERESTED I think it is for people wanting a more dynamic microphones and powerful than average to play in styles blues, pop, rock that still wise enough but if you want a solid foundation for a distortion of hell is not the right place I think even with a good config derrire but it's basically the story of a naturally got. To give an idea of ​​comparison even when my Flying V gives incomparably more travel to distortion of the microphone.

    A microphone if possible try before you buy to get an ide.

    I mount this mic on my ibanez Rg this is a good compromise between punch / precision, distortion sounds are trs good, clean sounds are not the best but as the name implies This microphone is plutt is to heat the guitars! (However, it is possible to find a clear drinking!)
    I think he has some versatility in the sense that we can move sounds bluesy sounds typs typs metal (well was only my opinion).
    I put 9 / 10 because I think he MRIT.
