Black Winters highly recommended
06.02.2017
I have two sets of Black Winters because I love them so much. These sound great for metal - I play mostly thrash, death and groove metal although I'm told they're great for black metal and other such.

However, do not fall into the trap of thinking they are a one trick pony.... they actually also sound great for clean tones. Seymour Duncan have hit it out of the park with these. Highly recommend these.

Super Allrounder
BeerDragon, 09.05.2020
Vorneweg ich bin durch eines der, zwar alten aber immer noch mega praktischen, Vergleichsvideos von Keith Merrow auf die Pickups gestoßen. Und ich kann nur jedem empfehlen der nach Humbuckern aus dem hause Seymour Duncan sucht, sich diese anzuschauen.

Das Black Winter Set sind die ersten PUs die ich mir gekauft um eine Gitarre nachzurüsten. Und ich muss ehrlich sagen das sind echt tonale Monster und super Allrounder.

Egal was ich ihnen zum Fraß vorwerfe (pun intended) wird verschlungen und in einem dynamischen, kristallklaren und echt hammergeilen Ton wieder ausgespuckt.
Von sauberen Cleans über dirty Crunch bis röhrendem Highgain, sind die PUs einfach nur geil.
Ein weiteres Feature der Tonabnehmer ist, dass gerade bei Highgain die Separation der Saiten echt gut erhalten bleibt.

Ach ja und die Verarbeitung ist (Seymour Duncan üblich) einfach nur Top!!!

Fazit: Wer super klingende und alleskönnende PUs sucht, ist hier genau richtig.

La paire de l'excellence!
Peuf, 13.12.2017
Malgré le fait que ces micros aient été conçus pour le metal extrême, le son est plus que polyvalent pour n'importe quel style. Le niveau de sortie est certes élevé et il faudra y aller molo sur les réglages de l'ampli pour ne pas cruncher trop rapidement. Le spectre des micros contient beaucoup de présence dans les mediums, pas mal d'aigus et des basses plus contenues, mais en gardant une dynamique très poussée, ce qui évite d'avoir des basses molles.
Le meilleur set de passifs que j'ai pu tester à ce jour, à un point que j'hésiterai presque à remplacer les micros de la plupart de mes guitares par cette paire.
Des micros à acheter les yeux fermés et les oreilles grandes ouvertes.

Excellent for aggressive or clean playing of various styles
Aguitarist, 04.11.2019
Tight and thick lows, growling mids, shimmering highs with immaculate clean tones. They're in your face with the volume at 10, but if you roll the volume off a notch or two they cool down a bit without losing their punch. The full range of volume and tones are just luminous through and through.

I have installed the set into several guitars and they have sounded especially great in mahogany bodies, but an Epiphone Explorer with the mysterious "korina" wood sounded terrible with these in (bringing out the thinness, dullness and plastic-like sterility of that particularly guitar), reminding me that electric guitars are indeed semi-acoustic instruments. So after a year of using the Black Winter set in several different guitars, I find the drawback is that these are so neutrally EQ'ed that they might bright out the weaknesses of your flawed guitars. In a Gibson Les Paul and an Epiphone SG these sound great without any such problems and without the woof or fizz in comparable Seymour Duncan models like the Nazgul, Invader, Dimebucker, and so on.

The Black Winter set are in my view one of the, if not the, best high-output passive humbucker sets out there: rapacious, melodious, and smooth as glass if you want. With these in a Les Paul it feels like I finally have a guitar that could cover most styles I play, and if I set the selector between Rhythm and Treble, roll my knobs to their sweet spots, then I can satisfactorily substitute my Stratocaster's neck pickup. So for me these are keepers: with the same guitar I can play exacting, heavy music while rolling back the knobs to get the lush clean tones I want for playing softer, more tonally varied styles that I spend most of my time on at home.
