Strong, balanced, but undifferentiated

Nico aus N., 20.08.2017
I have built the SH-5 as a bridge pickup in my Les Paul as a replacement for passive EMGs.
Previously, I had already exchanged the Neck pickup for the Jazz pickup SH2N-4C, of ??which I'm excited for Cleansounds.

The SH5 should be used mainly for hard rock types. He does this job satisfactorily, because:
It has a powerful sound with a pressing bass (had to take back something from my amp), with which it is really fun to play dampened.
The mids will go down a bit, but only to the extent that you can compensate for it if you want.
The heights are aggressive enough to play with metal, but they are clear and clean enough for my taste.
The overtone range is not as strong as my previous bridge EMG, which makes it sound balanced, without too much fun or sound in the case of Flageolett-loaded solo playing.

The only negative point is to be considered with caution, as you might not have the strengths of the SH5s if you had compensated for its weakness:
The SH5 is unfortunately not so differentiated as I would have liked. One has such a thick sound, which is usually desired with a Bridgetonabnehmer, but for my taste, I get subtleties by too much. For example, if I have played all 6 strings, I'd like to hear more, if I repeat a single string again, but this goes under. You might even describe it as muddy.

I'm very happy

Juan Andrés R., 25.01.2013
Big Seymor Duncan pills with great body and definition. Versatile for different styles of music and with an extra gain to be ceramic. The version more similar to the PAF of Seymor but with more harmonic richness.
