Seymour Duncan SH1B BLK

Pickup for Electric Guitars

There is not much left to say about the Seymour Duncan SH1. It is one of the most popular replacement pickups; especially when it is desired to replicate the well balanced sound of the the legendary PAF humbuckers of Seth Lover (the name is due to the bottom sticker "patent applied for"). For many guitarists this pickup is still the best, no screamer, it is way too classy to be that, ​​but it can sing like no other pickup. Particularly finicky musical gourmets attest SH1 even a touch more authenticity compared to several competitors - but clarification to that question could probably only be found by means of an AB comparison (which is very complex with pickups) and even then, certain judgments remain simply a matter of taste. In any case, a hot tip!

The SH 1 B59 is particularly suitable for the bridge position, especially if you want hear the guitar sound as much as possible (as said, it "sings" even with moderate distortion). Therefore, it is ideally suited for installation in Single Cut types, which innately deliver enough pressure and sustain. In those cases, a too violent pickup would rather causes damage anyways.

The (slightly louder) bridge version can also be used as neck pickup in combination with high output bridge pickups, for excellent results.

pure rock

Pierre143, 03.10.2012
I was looking to replace a SH4 bridge, which did not match my guitar for me, although being a monte of origin. I had positive feedback on SH1. So I started (first microphone that I changed on a guitar), and I was not disappointed: the sound is more rock, rounder, but not soft knee compared to the SH4, and it corresponds well to this that I waited for my guitar in the end.
On the other hand attention during the order, because the number of threads is not indicated (1 thread / 2 threads / 4 threads) and I have a surprise to receive a model 1 thread. it was not a problem, but for those looking for a more complex installation with micro split it might be a problem.
Also the picture does not match the product, because the microphone received was without logo SD! I erased the microphone remaining on the guitar and I did not have to send it back, but it can be embarrassing
