Seymour Duncan Announces Two New Rail Humbuckers
Seymour Duncan has announced two new rail humbucker pick-ups, the Slug & El Diablo
The Slug is a gnarly and insanely high-output humbucker that’s perfect for stoner and doom metal.
Since the late 60s when heavy metal emerged, guitarists have been looking for ways to deliver bigger and heavier riffs as the genre evolved. When we designed the SLUG, we wanted it to be the gnarliest and most powerful passive humbucker we’ve ever produced.
Oozing an immense 48k DCR and double ceramic magnets, SLUG delivers a monstrous sound that is perfect for the slow-charging, bass-heavy, riffage that dominates stoner and doom metal. Slightly longer than a standard humbucker, SLUG comes with a custom mounting ring to accommodate its 2.87” bobbin length. If mounting in a pickguard slight modification may be required.
Slug is available in black as neck, bridge and set.
Seymour Duncan El Diablo Rail Humbucker
The El Diablo holds a super-hot high-output wind and twin Alnico 2-blade magnets that deliver thick and tight saturation for percussive rhythms and warm leads.
For two decades, El Diablo has been an artist favourite and one of our best-selling Custom Shop made-to-order models. Now available as a standard production model, it sounds as vicious as it looks. It holds a super-hot wind and the twin Alnico 2 blade magnets deliver the “what you see is what you get” bold aesthetics that separate it from all other high-output humbuckers.
The blade magnets and extra hot DC resistance make the El Diablo one of the best pickups we make for players who want thick and tight saturation for percussive rhythms and warm leads that push through the mix. Slightly longer than a standard humbucker, the El Diablo comes with a custom mounting ring. If mounting in a pickguard slight modification may be required.
Available in black for bridge position.
Both pickup series are available to order now from Rosetti.
