OVERVIEW

When you want your sound "none more black."

Seymour Duncan's Black Winter Humbucker Electric Guitar Pickup was desgined to be as dark as the winters in Scandinavia where black metal lives and breathes with excessive grime and aggression. Trick out your favorite axe to give it the right balance of mids, treble and bass for nailing annihilating riffs or articulately cutting solos. Extreme metal guitarists will enjoy the Black Winter's crushing distortion, punishing mids and tons of aggressive saturation.

Choose from Neck, Bridge, or get a Set in the drop down menu. Naturally they are only available in black.

FEATURES
  • DC Resistance:
  • Neck: 13K k
  • Bridge: 16.60K k
  • Resonant Peak:
  • Neck: 6.35kHz
  • Bridge: 6.68kHz
  • EQ: 6 / 6 / 6 (Treb / Mid / Bass)
  • Magnet: Ceramic Bar

If you want to crush it sonically, Black Winter humbuckers will take you to the dark side of metal. Order today!

    Comments about Seymour Duncan Black Winter Humbucker Electric Guitar Pickup:

    It's good enough IF you're replacing a stuck pup. It sounds identical to a EMGHZ. It has decent chugity chugity chugity sound. You can hit harmonics and all the other things too. But if you're replacing a aftermarket pup it really has no tonal differences that set it apart. It is a high gain metal pup. So..... if you're replacing a stock pup it's great, replacing a aftermarket, eh not so much

        These are fantastic if you play high gain guitar. I wouldn't say they are great for clean tones but they're pretty good. Killer for rock, metal and melting faces. Pair with a high gain amp and you're in metal heaven. Pretty awesome.

          Comments about Seymour Duncan Black Winter Humbucker Electric Guitar Pickup:

          Very hot pickup, but you're expecting that. What surprised me is how warm they are when you back off on the volume. Much more versatile than I expected. Best for heavily saturated tones, but great for classic rock and blues as well. The volume pot is your friend.

          THE MOST metal thing I ever heard

            Comments about Seymour Duncan Black Winter Humbucker Electric Guitar Pickup:

            These things are by far the most metal thing i ever heard in my whole life! Ive been through EMG's and other Seymour Duncan's, including the Blackouts, and these are by far my favorite pickups I've ever used.

            I own a blacktop tele, naturally, wanted to switch out the stock pups. first set was an EMG 81/60, then the Kerry King EMG set, then a SD distortion/'59 combo, SD invader set, SD JB/'59, whew. All amazing pickups, but just not the sound i was looking for.

            Then I heard about the Black Winters. Preordered them, had to try them out of curiosity, beyond blown away! My tele is a beast unlike any! The clean tones are very crisp, articulate, and just wow! I can still get a good tele tone out of these on the clean channel! I can even get AC/DC,Journey tones with this things. And of course, they just blow my mind on the Metal setting. Amazing distortion tone; perfect saturation, powerful crunch, ballsy 'umph' behind them for sure. They're perfect for thrash metal if you're looking for something powerful yet not too muddy. That's where the Black Winter wins: powerful, ballsy "umph" yet not too muddy.

            Extremely impressed with the Black Winters, easily one of Seymour Duncan's best.

                I tried the Sh-15(Too harsh) and Sh-5(too weak) on my Schecter S-1 Elite, but this pup nailed it. You can get that awesome full-on distortion (Tony Iommi) or back it off for more clean tone. Very impressed. No sizzle, just a evil wall of uncensered sound.

                I got a Dean Thoroughbred Deluxe that came with a DMT Equalizer in the bridge. The pickup was decent for what it was, but definitely not for metal (amazing clean tones though). Just not enough crunch. Enter the SD Black Winter. Holy mother of metal this thing is awesome. All the crunch and clarity that I get from my EMGs or SD Blackouts, but then theres the warmth you get from being a passive. Actually sounds better than the EMGs. Hard to beat the Blackouts, but they are right up there with them.

                  Comments about Seymour Duncan Black Winter Humbucker Electric Guitar Pickup:

                  Had been looking for a new pickup set to replace the stock Duncan Designed pups in my Schecter S-! Elite. Those were decent but had a tad too much bass-y chunk to them for my taste. I wanted something with a more even EQ and happened upon these Black Winters. Wow! Couldn't be happier. These things are loud, aggressive, and articulate. Running through a Line6 Spider, every note is crisp, even and distinct even on insane distortion.The clean channel is actually CLEAN!

                  These are just great all around. I play mostly metal type stuff and these are built for that, but just rolling the volume back or toning down the distortion level, even just picking more lightly, these could probably be used for many different styles.
