Seymour Duncan STHR-1B BLK

T-Style Hot Rails Pickup

The Seymour Duncan Hot Rail T-Style is a humbucker in single coil format for the Tele bridge position with adjacent coils. It has more output than most of its competitors. Fat sound and sustain profusion makes it the right choice, if you want the sound to be powerful. Preferably use the Strat bridge position, but of course you can also bring other sounds to roar.

  • Humbucker in single coil format
  • Ideal 50's Pickup with more Output and rich Sustain
  • Colour: Black

unleash the beast in your Tele

31.01.2015
The Seymour Duncan STHR-1B is a single-coil-sized humbucker usable on the bridge position of a Telecaster guitar. As the average Telecaster relies on their twang and single-coil-sound, putting this one in will have a huge impact on what you are used to.
I use this pickup in a Fender Baja Tele. The main intention was to fatten up the rhythm sounds to be more broad and in the mid/bass tonality (imagine some stoner rock sound). For this intention, the pickus is totally fitting. You can make your Tele sound more like a Junior Paula with lots of gain and a fat, kind of muffled sound (compared to the Fender single coils). When active together with the neck PU, the Seymour Duncan tends to dominate the sound and kill the sparkly treble of the neck PU. Also you won't get any noticeable twang feel out of it (at least in higher gain).
The pickups itself are of high quality and seem very well fabricated.
What you can expect is a fat sound you wouldn't have imagend possible out of a Tele.
What you shouldn't expect is the definition you had before (if your tele had decent pickups), in higher gain it tends to be muffled.

Astride distortion, clean but dull

Artschi, 09.10.2009
With the Hot Rails the telecaster suddenly stands in a row with the "really evil" black battle axes. I have been able to elicit unimagined sounds from my good 25-year-old British tube amp: distortion without end, pressure, pressure, and even more distortion. Incredible.

Does not sound after 80s, but very modern. For six of the five stars - would not be the problem with the clean sound. This is simply lacking in brilliant heights, in transparency. I do not just mean the famous "Twang". It sounds simple and muffy. Again, switch to the distorted channel and enjoy - now knowing that the heights are missing. This is actually to be heard, but does not interfere, on the contrary, a little Teleklang is still to be felt. Distorted the part sounds really incredible!

The sound of only one reel in split mode is thin, sounds original after Eierschneider. Is neither distorted nor clean to use. Better connected in parallel: Although the output is still high, but in the case of down-regulated preamp, it is tolerable. What remains is the dull, the Muffige, if not as noticeable as with normal Humbucker circuit.

As the whole sounds with digital sound processing, I can not say (since sounds for me anyway no preference). For the analog amplification at least my conclusion: As an upgrade, if it is only about distortion, only recommendable. If the Bridge Pickup is also to be used for clean sounds, no chance.
