Seymour Duncan SHPG1B ZEB

Pearly Gates Humbucker

The Pearly Gates humbucker is essentially a variation on the PAF: to make the Texas attitude of Billy Gibbons and ZZ Top rougher, the Pearly Gates offers a little more "edge". It sounds snappy in comparison to the '59 and has more output and sustain. A great classic for the bridge position. For an absolutely authentic look, this pickup also comes in "zebra", with one coil in black, the other cream-coloured!

  • Bridge position
  • Texas attitude with sizzle in the upper frequency range
  • Rough, overtone-rich sound with lots of sustain
  • The sound of ZZ Top
  • Colour: Zebra (black/cream)

The implementation of the concept "how does a paula sound"

Helmut C., 10.10.2009
I have various guitars, Fender US Strat, Fender Tele, and still a bunch of others. Among other things, an older Tokai Les Paul. The original PUs have never appealed to me, so I quickly switched them to Seymour-Duncan Jazz at the neck and a SD Jeff Beck (SH-4) at the bridge.

It was quite good in the music selection because of the Marshall JCM-900 (4x EL-34) and the JCM-900 4x12 (Celestion G12-75).

Compared, I tested Gibson Classic 57 and Burstbucker 2 and 3. Good, but not yet "everything". My ES-335 I already had several years ago with excellent success with Pearly Gates equipped (Neck and Bridge), so I tried the PG also on the Paula in the bridge position. And there I had it, the Paula with the "Paula sound", which is always floating around in my head. Sustain has the Tokai (with Alu Stoptail, Titanium Riders, CTS-Potis, 50-Wires and Bumble-Bees) without end, with a fresh attack.

This in conjunction with the Pearly Gates is in my opinion an ideal mixture, at least for my stylistic styles Electric Blues, BluesRock and Blues. Then came my son (Metal) and also had the shining in the eyes because clarity, broadness and "snot" of the Pearly Gates in my Paula is also suitable for Metal.

Of course, the Marshall needs a bit of smoke, so now my neighbors are also of the opinion that the PG sounds completely coherent.
