The Seymour Duncan SHR-1 Pickup, with its appeal to all genres, truly excels at Rock, Hard Rock, Grunge, and Metal, where a thick, heavy, chunky distortion is needed.
The Seymour Duncan SHR-1 Pickup is called the Hot Rails Strat. The Hot Rails Strat is one of the highest output pickups that they make, and it is also one of their most popular. It contains a strong ceramic magnet for its high gain and bright highs, and the powerfully wound coils give this pickup its massive output and sensitivity.
The SHR-1 gives the player a warm, thick sound with plenty of sustain and loads of midrange harmonics. Althouth it sounds good with any genre of music, it really excels at Rock, Hard Rock, Grunge, and Metal, where you need a thick distortion with heavy and chunky chords.
The four-conductor lead wire install allows the player to use the pickup as it is or to split the coil, creating a single coil, for more versatility with your tone.
As with all Seymour Duncan pickups, each is handmade in Santa Barbara, CA to ensure quality and tone perfection, and this one is made in a bridge and a neck version. Great players of the Seymour Duncan SHR-1 include Dave Murray from Iron Maiden, and Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age.
