New Versions of the Seymour Duncan Nazgul and Pegasus Announced

Seymour Duncan Pegasus Nazgûl pickups Seymour Duncan 6-String Nazgûl

You no longer need a 7- or 8-string guitar to enjoy the ruthlessness of the Nazgûl or the enhanced dynamics and string separation of the Pegasus. The Nazgûl was developed for extreme metal players who required a massive and aggressive tone that still maintained plenty of articulation. The Pegasus was developed for prog and modern metal players who needed plenty of aggression but required enhanced dynamics, more harmonic richness and defined string separation so individual notes don't get lost in the mix. The perfect compliment to both these pickups is the Sentient neck pickup which is also now available in a 6-string version. It's voiced to capture a blend of vintage PAF and modern tones with enough output to deliver harmonically rich distorted lead tones but subtle enough to give you deep, detailed cleans. Think of it as combining the best qualities of the '59 Model and the Jazz: clarity, detail, depth, attack,and expression.

Each pickup is handwound in Santa Barbara, California with a black bobbin, black screws and a black logo.


6-String specifications:
Pegasus: DCR – 12.5k, Res Peak – 5.18kHz
Nazgul: DCR – 13.6k, Res Peak – 4.75kHz

About Seymour Duncan: With over 30 years in the business, the company manufactures much more than electric guitar pickups. They began with the finest in bass pickups under the brand name "Basslines," then Seymour's authentic replications of pickups from the 50's and 60's, aptly named Antiquity and Antiquity II, respectively. Then Benedetto jazz guitar pickups and finally the union of Seymour Duncan and Rick Turner to form D-TAR, Duncan-Turner Acoustic Research.
