Details

Seymour Duncan Blackouts are 9-volt active neck and bridge humbuckers that provide more extended frequency response with less compression. Seymour Duncan engineers have captured the tone players want in an active design with the benefits of balanced inputs.

 

Not only do Seymour Duncan Blackouts active humbuckers have less hum than most active humbuckers, they also have more lows, more highs, and more output. Simply put, the Blackouts have more tone than most active pickups. Players will find far fewer problems with hum, especially near computer monitors and fluorescent lighting.

 

Blackouts come as a two-pickup set of neck and bridge humbuckers. All versions come with all necessary mounting hardware, including pots, jack, and a battery clip.

Organic, powerful and full. And yes, I'm talking about pickups. Review by Will

While good tone may be subjective, I found mine with these Blackouts. They take 1 9v battery, like most actives, and do their thing quite well. I've played with Ibanez INF passives, EMG Hz passives, EMG 81/85 active combo, and out of all of them, much preferred the Blackouts.

I felt that the Blackouts responded with the power and clarity I was looking for, as well as a nice low-mid thump. The EMGs just didn't feel as heavy or full to me. However, this may differ from person to person, so I wouldn't dissuade any metal player from trying out both. I just found the Blackouts to respond nicely to my style of playing and music (technical hardcore, think Converge, Norma Jean.) and gave a more organic response. While the EMGs sounded extremely similar on all my guitars, the Blackouts gave each a distinctive, unique tone. Maybe it's just my ears, but the Blackouts were certainly more organic and responsive to my picking.

5 stars for features. They do what they're supposed to do, and do it well.
5 stars for value. Same as the above, they're amazing pickups and convey a wonderfully accurate, organic and butt-kicking tone.
5 stars for quality. My ESP is 5 years old, and these Blackouts still kick major bum.

At the end of the day, try them out. They come stock on Schecter Blackjack ATX models, and the midrange ESP LTD line usually has the EMG 81/85 setup stock. Head to your local music store and try them out. You'll probably feel the same as me. (Posted on 3/16/2011)
