Our original high output ceramic humbucker, the 8-string version of the Duncan Distortion bridge is perfectly suited for extended range guitars.
The Duncan Distortion is Seymour Duncan's original high output humbucker. It incorporates a massive ceramic magnet and hot coil windings to deliver well-balanced rock and metal tones that have rich upper midrange harmonic content. Lows strings are tight and gritty while the high strings scream with harmonics.
Great for hard hitting, crunchy rhythms, and searing lead tone. This active 8-string humbucker comes with a black soapbar cover with one row of exposed pole pieces, for a cool, modern active look and mount. Also available with standard open-coils, or with a black metal humbucker cover in a passive mount style. Hand built in the Santa Barbara, CA factory, the Distortion uses a large ceramic bar magnet, nickel silver bottom plate, 4-conductor lead wire for multiple wiring options, and is vacuum wax potted for squeal-free performance.
