OVERVIEW

Gives you that old school Texas blues-rock sound.

Originally designed as a recreation of the pickups in the '59 Les Paul Standard that defined the raw, rebellious sound of Texas blues-rock, the Pearly Gates is sweet, but slightly rude, with great sustain and a bright top end that make harmonics jump out of the guitar. Comes with four-conductor hookup cable. For brighter toned instruments, it works especially well with maple and ebony fingerboards. Also works great with hollow and semi-hollow body guitars.

This Pearly Gates Sets make it easier than ever to grab yourself a slice of that famous Texas Tone. While the starting point for the Pearly Gates was a vintage PAF from one of the most famous (and most expensive) guitars to come out of Texas, it adds a bump in the output and high end, making this set perfect for harder blues and classic rock styles.

Sweet Pickup Set

By Alex Dumble

Comments about Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates Humbucker Pickup Set:

I bought a pair of Pearly Gates with nickel covers and another with zebra coils. I think the Pearly Gates set is one of the best sets you can put in a Les Paul or SG. I havent heard them in something like an Ibanez or H/H Strat so I wont comment. I can tell you that they mesh really well with set neck, mahogany body guitars. These pickups sing.

    Comments about Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates Humbucker Pickup Set:

    These pickups sound like what you think of when you think of the PAF sound from the 60s and 70s in blues and rock. They have a vintage, warm, bright clean tone and sound better the more gain you give them. If you are here looking at Duncans these are worth your time to check out.

      Comments about Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates Humbucker Pickup Set:

      Holy Howl! I've been wanting a set of these for a while. Why did I wait? Put them in my Ibanez AS73L and it went from a good guitar to a great guitar! Improved harmonics, sound quality, tone and soul. If you want to unleash your guitar for more driven blues, country, rock or metal these are the pickups you want. I play all these genres and there is nothing these Seymour Duncans can't handle.

      Amazing pickups

      By Nolo

      from Houston, Texas

      Comments about Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates Humbucker Pickup Set:

      Bought the Pearly Gate set to install on my Ibanez AF55 hollow body. This guitar had so much potential at its buying price tag but lacked that little extra ummpphh! (You know what I mean?) I wanted something that delieverd a blues tone that also had some bite and could compliment the warm tones of the guitars acoustics. Seymour Duncan delivered all this plus more. When I picked up my guitar from my local guitar shop, everyone in the shop wanted to know who owned "that" Ibanez. Everyone was amazed by the sound of the Pearly Gates and where passing my guitar around like a cheap ....(well you know what I mean). People did not believe me how much my Ibanez cost me because everyone loved the sound and even more when it was plugged in, people where surprised when I told them that the pickups cost me half of what I spent on the guitar. Needless to say I'm buying another set of Pearly Gates, Seymour Duncan delivered good on their product.

      Pros

          Best Uses

          • Delta Blues/Cajun Country

          Comments about Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates Humbucker Pickup Set:

          Experienced former musician. I've always loved the clear sound of an understated Dobro in the background. Thought I might give it a try someday but didn't want to spend lots of money because I didn't know how much I'd use it. My musician brother sent me a link to your Stupid Deal of the Day; it turned out to be an offer I couldn't refuse. It came quickly and in good shape. For the price, I really like the sound: crisp, uncluttered by extraneous string noise and a clean, clear resonance. I'll be playing with bottleneck but the action seems good. It would be excellent for Delta Blues and Cajun country. It handles the slide accompaniment well so overall I'm pleased. Only problem - I'm no Jerry Douglas. It's heavy so I don't think I'll be hanging it around my neck anytime soon, but on my lap it's fine. Good Deal.

            I did an insane amount of research looking for a pickup set for my Les paul classic. I decided on the Pearly Gates and I was not disappointed. They improved the sound, ten fold! If you're looking for the Billy Gibbons/Jimmy Page tone, look no further!

              Comments about Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates Humbucker Pickup Set:

              Very clear sound. Installed with coil taps on an old Starfire III. Can sound full & thick or fairly light depending on settings. I like sound with neck tapped and bridge humbucking together thru a tube amp with just a bit of gain- you can get lovely cleans & rhythm with a bit of crunch; or turn things up to get surprisingly hot metal. Sound more clear than PAF or cut tone to sound more like PAF. Not as light when tapped as Strat but close. Nearly as heavy as EMG 80/85 when cranked. I could use for most blues, jazz, metal & classic rock songs. And I can still get Guild sound if I wanted it, but these sound so much better, I don't.
