The Seymour Duncan AHB-1 Blackouts 8-String pickup set offers the same amazing 9V active pickup setup as their 6-string Blackouts. The 8-string versions use balanced inputs with a differential preamp for reduced noise. Duncan Blackouts pickups are voiced for heavy rock with greater dynamic range, less scooped mids, and less compression than other active pickups.
The 8-string Blackouts are available here as a calibrated neck and bridge pickup set. Seymour Duncan includes 25K pots, stereo jack, battery clip and other mounting hardware. These are electric guitar pickups perfect for old school metal, garage, punk, thrash, drop tunings, and other heavy rock styles.
Seymour Duncan Blackouts humbuckers provide more extended frequency response with less compression. Seymour Duncan engineers have captured the tone guitarists want in an active guitar pickup with the benefits of balanced inputs.
Not only do Seymour Duncan Blackouts have less hum than most active humbuckers, they also have more lows, more highs, and more output. Simply put, Duncan Blackouts have more tone than most active pickups. Players will find far fewer problems with hum, especially near computer monitors and fluorescent lighting.
Seymour Duncan Blackouts pickups include all necessary mounting hardware, such as pots, jack, and a battery clip.
