Seymour Duncan launches collaborative Research Lab
Seymour Duncan announces the launch of the Seymour Duncan Research Lab, inviting all musicians to join in and help design the future of tone tools.
Seymour Duncan has announced the launch of the Seymour Duncan Research Lab, described as "a collaborative home for all musicians to join in and to help design the future of tone tools".
Through this system, musicians will be able to share their ideas, refine them through discussion and vote on those that would be most impactful to them. This community research lab is not limited to just pickups and pedals, but also to any tool that would help a musician, including videos or wiring diagrams. Designing with community input is something more and more common in the music industry, and Seymour Duncan has already done it in the past, with pickups like the '59/Custom Hybrid and StraBro90 partly inspired by the online community revolving around the brand.
The new site is open to any musician who has a preference they want to share, and the performing ideas considered the best are to be sent for review by the Seymour Duncan new products team. New Wiring Diagrams are made available for free in the largest guitar diagram library on the internet.
The Seymour Duncan Research Lab (or SDRL) can be joined at this address.
