OVERVIEW

High output humbucker is ready for anything.

The Seymour Duncan Sh-15 Alternative 8 Trembucker is a high output electric guitar pickup with an Alnico 8 magnet for extra output and wider pole spacing for vibrato-equipped guitar. Perfect for all rock styles and great for use with high gain amps.

Description

Seymour Duncan's first production guitar pickup to use an Alnico 8 magnet, the Alternative 8 Humbucker starts with hot coils wound for maximum output. With the addition of the Alnico 8 magnet, output is enhanced with a huge, punchy sound, full of fat mids and present upper-mids. This is a dynamic guitar pickup that doesn't get "sizzly" or dark like some high-output ceramic magnet electric guitar pickups.

Complete setup

The Seymour Duncan SH-15 Alternative 8 Pickup is recommended for the bridge position on your guitar. Matches great with a moderate output neck pickup like the SH-1n '59 or the SH-2n Jazz Model. Pairs well with a distortion pedal like the SFX-05 Lava Box or the SFX-08 Power Grid distortion.

I can't believe this!!!

Comments about Seymour Duncan SH-15 Alternative 8 Humbucker:

I had two choices, put this pickup into an ESP, with an Invader in the bridge and an EMG in the neck, and putting it into a cheap Yamaha (the one that comes with the $250 starter kit) with Gibson pots and Ultra Brite strings. The ESP has an amazing sound already, so I decided that the Yamaha could use it more, and I can't believe how bright and fat the damn thing sounds! I had a SD SH-5 in it, which was already a big improvement over the original sound, AND the EMG that was in it before. Now it sounds better than the ESP!! So, just buy a cheap guitar, buy this pickup and a decent amp, and it will sound so good that you will want to practice all day.

It's about freaking time

Comments about Seymour Duncan SH-15 Alternative 8 Humbucker:

It's about time SD! Guys have been modding duncans for years with alnico 8 mags. I've got a JB8 and a custom 8 (basically a JB and custom custom with AN8 magnets in them). A lot of guys probably aren't comfortable pulling their pickups apart and re-potting them so this is a good move on SD's part. I wish it hadn't taken them this long to realize the benefits of the alnico 8 magnet though :(Very punchy, dynamic and hot pickup. Very sensitive and more articulate. You may need to drop your pickup height after installing one of these though.
