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
Note: Register your purchase at www.w-distribution.de/Warranty for an extended warranty of 4 years.

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.

Kick Ass Pickup!
Grogser, 31.12.2020
If you need a little beef in your life, and let's face it, who doesn't? Then the Hot Rails is the perfect pickup to end your single coil nightmares. i boosted my Tele with this monster and have not regretted it for one day, hefty low-end and crystal clear high's make for a killer tone. Lead tone can be a little harsh but if you use and overdrive or booster at all t shape your lead tone this could help. Highly recommended.

Astreine Verzerrung, Clean aber dumpf
Artschi, 09.10.2009
Mit dem Hot Rails steht die Telecaster plötzlich in einer Reihe mit den "richtig bösen" schwarzen Kampfäxten. Meinem guten, 25 Jahre alten britischen Röhrenamp habe ich ungeahnte Klänge entlocken können: Verzerrung ohne Ende, Druck, Druck, und noch mehr Verzerrung. Unglaublich.

Klingt nicht nach 80er-Jahre, sondern sehr modern. Dafür sechs von den fünf Sternen - wäre da nicht das Problem mit dem cleanen Sound. Dem fehlt es schlicht und einfach an brillianten Höhen, an Transparenz. Ich meine nicht nur den berühmten "Twang". Es klingt schlicht und einfach muffig. Wieder zum verzerrten Kanal gewechselt und genießen - jetzt mit dem Wissen, dass die Höhen fehlen. Das ist tatsächlich zu hören, stört aber nicht, im Gegenteil, ein wenig Teleklang ist doch noch zu empfinden. Verzerrt klingt das Teil wirklich unglaublich!

Der Klang nur einer Spulen im Split Modus ist dünn, klingt original nach Eierschneider. Ist weder verzerrt noch clean zu gebrauchen. Besser parallel geschaltet: Zwar ist der Output immer noch hoch, bei runter geregelter Vorstufe aber erträglich. Was bleibt ist das Dumpfe, das Muffige, wenn auch nicht so auffällig wie bei normaler Humbucker-Schaltung.

Wie das ganze bei digitaler Klangverarbeitung klingt, kann ich nicht sagen (da klingt für mich ohnehin alles egal). Für die analoge Verstärkung zumindest mein Fazit: Als Aufrüstung, wenn es nur um Distortion geht, nur zu empfehlen. Wenn der Bridge Pickup auch für Clean Sounds eingesetzt werden soll, keine Chance.
