A
Best passive pickup for metal.
Alksndr 10.09.2019
This a is high output pickup, fitted for rock, hard rock, metal, i wouldn't use this for something else.

Having said that, this PUP is a BEAST, once is paired with a decent high output AMP ( boogie, ENGl, 5150...) it chunks and growls like a giant monster.

The great thing is that its still clear enough, the sound doesn't get lost in between the distortion.

It shines in the mid and low mids and lows. Great for baritone tuning .

Also the great thing about this beast is that it's character is not a sterile or mainstream as the EMG 81.

Invades your ears with crunchy tone magnificence
Clayton C. 08.12.2013
Don't look at this pickup if you're looking for smooth tones. This mean boy is all about distorted beauty and aggression. From classic rock to death metal, once you plug your guitar in an amp, you know you're in for a riffing ride!

I
Extreme distortion with plenty of bass
ISBM 03.03.2016
I have used this pickup in two guitars. The first was a little unusual: the middle position on a custom hotrod. The sounds was... memorable! But the high output meant anything over half volume or tone was an overkill! So I have moved it to the bridge position of a kit built Strat style guitar. The effect is a very heavy sounding strat! It has a very high bass response and handles drop tuned riffs with ease. So much so that I daren't tune this to standard for fear of wasting it's capabilities. There is no bridge tone control (easier to not bother on an HSS Strat) so volume provides all variation in tone, and in this case it does that very well. Rolling off gives a warm "dirty blues" sound, if you can work out what I mean. Any further tone descriptions are a little pointless given the sound samples both on here and youtube.

Build quality? It's a Seymour Duncan, hand made in the USA, so it's well made.

I would strongly recommend the Invader for it's awesome looks and great sound. I only put 4 stars for sound based on my own opinion (could do with some more mids). I like to have a variety of sounds in my guitars and am very happy to have this in one. Just make sure you put it in the bridge!

H
Metal tone and more
Heaventeo 07.01.2019
It can play power,thrash,death,grind,black metal, but it can also play softer music if you tweek your amp alittle. The most interesting part is that it can tame avery bright or thin sounding guitar.Crushing metal tone and more from Invader.
I said it a lot of time and i'll say it again: Seymour Duncan ir genius!
