very suitable for hard rock and metal music
northerner, 27.05.2017
I bought these pickup set for using on stage and studio. I have put these in Harley Benton SC 1000 VB guitar.

It is very suitable for hard rock and metal music.

It is high output, balanced, sustained, sharp-toned, very good pickup according to the price.

Treble frequencies are quite ahead but it did not bother me. Because my guitar is les paul that have mohagany body.

I am very satisfied with the result,I highly recommend it.

Excellent
Miskatonic, 05.10.2019
If you want to perform extreme musical styles with chunky distortion YET a lot of signal separation and clarity, these pickups will not disappoint. Very bright, hot and loud but without making the sound into a mess/wall of noise. I was genuinely surprised by the ability to hear individual tones when a lot of notes/strings are played together. Would definitely recommend these. I'm also interested to try the "black winter" pickups someday BUT I think the Distortion mayhem set is probably more useful for a wider spectrum of musicians.

Not a problem playing without high gain, too. "Clean" tones come through well, not overly grumbly/crunchy.

I put 3/5 for "quality" as Thomann shipped me what looked like a 2nd/returned box, which was cracked and in a bit of a mess. Pickups were fine, though, not a problem.

I also think there should be a more exhaustive explanation of wiring. I've no problem with this, but I can imagine it might confuse people not familiar with the inner workings of guitars. All wiring diagrams are technically available on the Seymour Duncan site, though, so bear this in mind if your guitar model isn't covered in the instructions (mine wasn't)

very good - after all
Adriano G., 01.12.2017
I bought these pickups to change my ibanez RG, which had those stock dimarzio that I never really liked but are extremely popular: tone zone and paf pro. I never could get a f**ing good warm and aggressive sound out of them. maybe people how like them so much play fusion. It was an epic story to plug these PUs in the guitar as Ibanez RG PUs cavities are shaped for DiMarzios and others wouldn't fit:- triangle shape vs square shape (I'll never buy Ibanez like that anymore). After all the trouble when I tried the PUs I wasn't blown by how they sounded. It was during a band practice, when the valves were very warm, I pushed the volume and I had a good gain level on my overdrive that I noticed how good I was sounding - and it even felt easier to come up with cool riffs - you know...those moments when you are jamming and everything seems to come out just right. Well now I know the PUs are warm and aggressive as I like, and the cleans are divine. Thanks Seymour, bye Dimarzio. NOTE My opinion is also influenced by my other guitar with Duncans JB and 59s. So bottom line - it isn't a sound that blows you away like what I felt with the JB and 59, but it's a very good sounding set. highly recommended.

Good set for heavy tones!
Alek Archer, 04.03.2020
The pickups sound nicely, surprisingly well on the clean tones as well as high gain. But these days modern guitar players would go for something less scooped.
