Seymour Duncan SL59-1B BLK

PickupA PAF 59 - humbucker in single coil format. For many, the PAF (and all good copies) is still the pickup number 1. Balanced frequency spectrum, enough output for sustained sounds - but not a "screamer".

The Little 59 is the perfect solution for anyone who has inhibitions about taking apart their strat to install a big humbucker: Classic humbucker sound (a Strat will of course never be a single cut, but it doesn't to be; see Eddie Van Halen), but still the perfect design (and this includes the arrangement of the pickups) from the good old Leo Fender.

  • Sustain rich sounds
  • Perfect design
  • Four conductor cables
  • Bridge version
  • Colour: Black

Great sound less noise!

Superb little pickup, fitted very easily and has boosted the sound range and quality of my Strat to a different level! Wished I'd have tried it sooner.

Nach einer konsequenten Vervollständigung
Wilfried-B., 22.12.2015
der N- und M-Position (bestückt jeweils mit dem SL59-1N) und nunmehr der Bridge-Position mit dem SL59-1B sind auch die Übergänge aller Schalterpositionen (M, MB, B) ausgewogen und stimmig.
Der SL59-1B ist hierbei sehr durchsetzungsfähig in seinem Klangvolumen und passt nach meiner Auffassung richtig gut zu dem SL59-1N auf der Mittenposition.
Selbst wenn man die Knopfler-Pos. (MB) zu B verlässt, ist er für den leicht angechrunchten Blues sehr eigenständig, wobei er auch hier mit einer angenehmen Wärme im Sound überzeugt. Für mich ist dieser SL59-1B eine konsequente Weiterverfolgung für meine Strat., einen Sound auf allen Schalterpositionen mit etwas mehr Wärme zu produzieren, wobei ich diesen Sound zwischen einem Single-Coil und einem Humbucker einordne.

Laurent647, 04.02.2016
J'ai installé ce petit humbucker sur une strat. Il est fait pour ça, donc c'est sans problème: on dévisse, on revisse et on soude. Le réglage de hauteur du micro est facile, et le niveau de sortie n'est pas trop élevé pour qu'il s'accorde bien avec des simples bobinages.

Le micro est splittable mais je n'ai pas testé cette configuration. Il y a quatre conducteurs plus un blindage dans une gaine.

Le son est très bon, il apporte le grain et la coloration particulière d'un double bobinage de style vintage, avec un peu de punch mais pas trop, et le silence aussi grâce au blocage du "hum". Le son reste assez clair avec une excellente définition. Le fait d'avoir sur une strat le choix entre les simples et un double bobinage apporte beaucoup de polyvalence.

Je ne pense pas que ce micro puisse remplacer un bon gros humbucker, mais il apporte une solution élégante et efficace.

J'ai fini par le remplacer par son frère le JB jr (SJBJ) qui me semble un peu plus sauvage. Les deux font définitivement partie de ma boîte à outils.

Son vintage
Philippe427, 13.08.2012
Micro monté sur une Fender Strat classic Player 60' en position bridge avec deux seymour SSL52 en position middle et neck. Ce micro est moté avec un Push/Pull pour le passer de Serie à parallele. En mode série il épaissit le son et donne plus de pêche. Malgré tout, on garde le côté "claquant" de la Strat (on tombe pas dans l'univers "Les Paul" avec un son plus "sombre"). Il a un timbre vintage indéniable et se marie bien le micro middle ; même si on perd un peu le côté très creusé de cette position. En mode parallèle, le son est assez sec. il s'adapte dans cette configurarion très bien avec le micro middle.
Je joue du Blues et du Blues Rock. Je ne sais pas ce qu'il donne en métal.

Très bon micro.
