Seymour Duncan

One of the highest output pickups made.

The Seymour Duncan SHR-1 Hot Rail Stacked Single Coil Pickup is one of the highest output pickups made. It's a humbucker that fits into a normal single-coil pickup slot, so you get noise canceling without cutting a large hole in your guitar. The 2 thin blades with powerful coil windings give you the incredible sustain and fat, full sound that's needed for playing heavier rock music. This Seymour Duncan SHR-1 pickup responds to the subtlest finger movements.

      The gain you get from this unit is very intense . The pinch harmonics and tap harmonics are yours to command , but you need to take your time getting on them.
      The packaging of the unit is very good , and the instructions are easy to follow.
      The wires are tiny , and you need a 75 watt soldering iron to make a good solder joint , and this is not for someone without experiance at soldering.
      How about a wake-up call in your studio from your Strat with Hot Rails????
      Yes I am impressed at the gain and the kick of this SHR-1 Hot rails unit I installed at the bridge.
      I have been playing since the 1950's and I have heard a lot of guitar talk and fluff.

      This is the best thing I have ever used in all my years.
      This unit is beautifuly designed , and it is easy to install ( providing you know how to work on guitars ), and the instructions are great.
      The packaging is top of the line and the unit is Ultra Quality.
      If you are not handy with this type of work , you need to get professional help from your local music store.
      You won't see another unit as well made , and for what you get in performance , this is a real bargain.

      The tone quality is pretty boring. It has a good vintage sound which comes in handy for playing old dirty blues, and the output is ok, but next to my Dimarzio D-activator it is really weak and I barely find any use for it. Dimarzio seems to be the tone kings thus far, I also highly recomend the paul gilbert injector set...WOW!! Amazing tone and output.

              I put this in my 2012 American Strat bridge position. I was not satisfied with the single coil for heavier sounds. I put this in and my guitar is so much more versatile, I can get the great clean sounds from the 2 single coils and awesome distortion from the hot rails in the bridge.

                Comments about Seymour Duncan SHR-1 Hot Rails Stacked Single-Coil Pickup:

                Completely transforms your Strat, I put one in the bridge position and it's amazing. It sounds like a humbucker in all it's glory, but still has a little Strat to it. Quiet as a mouse though, even in extreme high-gain settings. I'm not a big SD guy but this pickup is a must-have.

                I also installed a mini-toggle switch to go from humbucker to single coil on the hot rail, and series/paralell in other switch positions. Seymour shows you how in the diagram. It's worth the trouble. I don't like push-pull knobs but you can do it that way too.

                Important to note, it's in the back of the instructions if you are mixing SD pups with other brands, then you may have to reverse the black and green wires from the diagram to get them in phase. If they sound real thin and nasal, switch to the black or green wire as the hot wire, whatever the reverse of what you have is.

                Put a couple DiMarzio 'area' pups in the other slots and this thing is loaded for bar. Fearlessly crank it up with a lot of overdrive, tube screamer, the whole nine yards and it won't make any noise, just music.

                Wish they had these 40 years ago, we had terrible power boxes, flourescent lighting, aluminum wiring, dimmers, all kinds of horrors faced us at gigs and when we cranked up our amps it sounded like the generators at Hoover Dam firing up! But this and the DiMarzio "area" pups fix this for good.

                  I'm bringing a squier strat to life by ripping it apart and making it pretty with new parts, new pickups, and such. The first thing I decided to do was put rail pickups on the guitar. (Cool Rails in the neck, VIntage Rails in the middle, Hot Rails in the bridge.)
                  The sheer power coming out of this pickup is astounding. Pieces like these put other companies to shame. It is very articulate, very powerful, and the casing looks very sleek. i'm now a proud owner of a set of Seymour Duncan Rails pickups.

                      I have had tons of guitars and many different pickups over my years of playing, but the best tone and sound I have ever gotten out of any of my guitars came from the Seymour Duncan hot rails pickup in the bridge of a standard Mexican Stratocaster I owned many years ago. Im going back to hot rails. You can do iron maiden, 80s hair metal, thrash and more. Once you play one of these, it will change you forever.

                        This pickup was just what I wanted! I was apprehensive to change my pickup but my bridge PUP had a ton of buzz and very thin sound. I was looking for something where I can play with more sustain and more gain when playing blues/rock. This PUP made my guitar have a 'humbucker' tone and response and it sounds AMAZING. I could not be happier with this purchase. If you're looking to get a better tone from your strat, I can't think of a cheaper and more effective mod. Highly recommend!

                              from Los Angeles, CA

                              Comments about Seymour Duncan SHR-1 Hot Rails Stacked Single-Coil Pickup:

                              I have played Seymour Duncans for nearly 30 years now, and I wasn't disappointed with this pick-up. Compared to the JBjr, the Hot Rails isn't as subtle or versatile, but it gives a great sound for playing hard rock and metal.
                              The four conductors (plus ground) allow for multiple wiring options. I wired this for a simple coil split.

                              It's a great sounding humbucker--very hot output with high sensitivity and rich tone. Splitting the coil so I can get more traditional single-coil sound was a surprising treat--the pick-up is well shielded, so it's actually very quiet even when not using both coils--but it will never sound like a traditional Strat single-coil, nor would I want it to.
                              Extremely well made.
                              Decent price for it on Musician's Friend and well worth it for the quality of this aftermarket pick-up.

                              Hotrails for Strat

                              Comments about Seymour Duncan SHR-1 Hot Rails Stacked Single-Coil Pickup:

                              Installation was a breeze. Do it when you will change strings. I did not use any of the fancy split coil wirings. Unsolder two wires, solder the hotrails in place. Be sure to do the Black and Green wire switch as recommended in the instructions. If you don't you may get some unwanted feedback. Also watch your pickup-strings gap. I heard people say its louder than the other single coils, not a problem for me.
                              The cool thing about this pickup, it fits into a regular strat slot without having to cut a bigger hole in your pick guard. Or buy another pickguard for that matter. Its a humbucker all rite. It thickens your sound and adds more sustain. That's why i wanted it. The bridge pickup on my american strat was too thin-sounding. Sounds terrible with high gain distortions. Very little mids. Hotrails has fixed this for me.
                              Built to match. Only thing i don't like is the super thin wires.
                              For an upgrade it is quite an investment. You can get a guitar with a humbucker for not much more. I have only started using it so i hope it holds up.

                              Comments about Seymour Duncan SHR-1 Hot Rails Stacked Single-Coil Pickup:

                              RE: Duncan Hot Rails neck PU - I have a HSS Godin Velocity - play thru a Fender HRD w/Eminence Red Coat speaker and Yellowjackets - I hate the hum that single coils PU's have so I was looking for a quiet neck PU and one that was more humbucker-like tone - I considered Cool Rails - but wanted the extra "hot" for solo work. I am perfectly satisfied with the tone on it's own and how it interacts with the Vintage Rail in the middle. It competes well with the bridge HB as far as volume. I expected a great tone and was not let down. The sustain and breakup is musical and little nuances come out every time I play it. It's warm yet clear. I've used it before in various Strats I've owned and always get the same great results.
                              It's a Duncan - with all the extra wires for splitting options - which I didn't use
                              Never had a problem with Duncan PU's -
                              The price is the going rate - so this is what you pay to get a good sounding pickup.
