"picky"

Seymour Duncan SHPG-1N Pearly Gates NeckPublished on 06/09/11 at 07:37
I recently installed this pickup into the bridge position of my ESP Sc6 just to see if it could hang with the Anderson h3 I have been using for years.The SC6 has an alder body, maple neck through, ebony fret board, and a tune-o-matic bridge. My main amp is a Framus Cobra 100 watt tube amp and I also played it through a Peavey 5150 and Hughes & Kettner triamp.I mainly play metal along the lines of pantera, botch, the dillinger escape plan, and also some spacey ambient stuff.

Plugging into my amp without changing my normal settings and the pickup was very thin compared to the Anderson.The clarity is great and the clean sounds are really nice but it lacks the chunk in distortion that I'm......

I recently installed this pickup into the bridge position of my ESP Sc6 just to see if it could hang with the Anderson h3 I have been using for years.The SC6 has an alder body, maple neck through, ebony fret board, and a tune-o-matic bridge. My main amp is a Framus Cobra 100 watt tube amp and I also played it through a Peavey 5150 and Hughes & Kettner triamp.I mainly play metal along the lines of pantera, botch, the dillinger escape plan, and also some spacey ambient stuff.

Plugging into my amp without changing my normal settings and the pickup was very thin compared to the Anderson.The clarity is great and the clean sounds are really nice but it lacks the chunk in distortion that I'm used to with the H3. I took a bit and re-did my EQ to try and compensate but was still a bit underwhelmed by it. Boosting the bass got me a little closer to what I was looking for but started to muddy up the sound. I then used an EQ pedal to try and find a happy medium but never quite got the thickness while retaining a tight low end. I have a friend who uses one in his LP style guitar and it sounds great. The construction of that guitar is completely different with a mahogany body and a rosewood board I am sure it is nowhere near as bright of a guitar as my ESP. He also tunes down to B and in that tuning the pickup sounds incredibly full and well balanced.

Overall I would say this pickup would be much better in a guitar made of mahogany or other woods with a lower resonance. The alder and ebony combination is just too bright for it. I would suggest this pickup to people playing classic rock as it has that high-mid thing going or for anyone dropping an LP style guitar down to B and playing some slow doom music.

4 years ralisations on 70th SG Ibanez banned ...
Defines many microphones trs.

The sound is really DIFFERENT from other mics in the range Seymour!
Not suitable for the Mtal (one would have suspected!)

A remake certainly.

No opinions on these mics? So this was the first, hoping to see more (positive) very soon!
I talked a lot, listened, read, ... before deciding to install this set (neck + bridge) on my rievax Xavier Petit. And the result is up to the excellent work of this maker of talent!
Typed vintage, this duo is perfect for Jazz, Blues and Classic Rock, less adapted to the metal (for my taste).
Split double as the sound is open, well balanced (high-medium trend and acute still, perfect to play with the knobs for tone and volume), and captures the nuances of play with a pick like fingers.
want to get out of the standard 59/JB? so try the pearly gates, you tell me the news!
