Seymour Duncan DUALITY pickups for Metal & Horseriding
Alright, it’s been a long while since I did a proper pickup video
Simply for the reason that I absolutely hate soldering more than I hate ba-
I was gonna say babies, but that’s not entirely true
No, soldering is probably what I hate the most in my life.
Anyway, I had my guitar tech install them for me and …
That’s cool, huh? Being able to say that I have my guitar tech
It sounds better if I say that my good friend Kent installed the pickups for me
So I don’t have to spend time doing what I hate the most in life.
So, today I’m doing the Seymour Duncan Duality set of pickups and …
Truth be told, I haven’t heard a word about these pickups
so I googled like, you know, any normal human being would do
and I found one video with Keith Merrow
and obviously, because it’s Keith Merrow, it sounds super awesome and killer
And … Yeah, but I couldn’t find any other video
So I guess it’s just up to me to see if I can sound killer through them, so yeah.
the Duality pickups are supposed to be a newer pickup design and it is an active set of pickups
But should be sounding like a good mix of a passive and active pickup, for a more organic type of sound
It’s supposedly an Alnico 2-
… pickup. And as I’m a big fan of Alnico, I’m very much, you know, expecting to like this.
I don’t know, we’ll just see. So, let’s try it out.
The Duality set is mounted on a Solar A2.6
going straight into my Randall Satan 50 that goes into my Hesu 2×12 cabinet
and micing it all up is my Beyerdynamic M150 …
Alright, so let’s go. We need to push ‘record’
There’s a good amount of chunk in these pickups and, you know, it has a lot of bite
So, I think these pickups would sound awesome in like a more classic amplifier
like a Dual Rectifier, or a 5150
So … There’s just a little bit too much bite for my Satan. So, I’ll just dial down the grind a little bit.
Okay, let’s try it with the clean channel.
Works really good for cleans
Oh, that was cool.
They’re a little bit too modern sounding for the Randall Satan
But I think this would go perfect with a Dual Rectifier or a 5150
You know, to spice it up a little bit like that
I decided, because I have no life
Yeah, let’s just try it in a 5150 and see how it sounds there.
It’s all for my awesome audience, which is you guys
And where the F- is the Fff- fart button? Oh, it’s here. Okay, fart.
Okay, very interesting guys. Very, very, very interesting.
Will I prove my theory that I think that these Duality pickups will sound awesome in this 5150?
We’re just gonna see, right now.
I have the gain on 2 right now.
It’s very tight.
Come on you f***ing amp, you’re in the way.
Can I just roll back a little? Thank you.
Yeah, this 5150 just makes a lot more sense with these pickups
and yeah, sometimes Satan is not the answer, okay?
I’m fine with that. Sometimes Jesus is the answer.
You tell me
Sorry, no, do not make this into a religious discussion
We’re just talking amplifiers and guitar pickups. Okay?
Because you can hear here
You can hear, when I’m playing right now, that this bite that was a little too much on the Satan
Fits really well with the 5150, which is a lot more, you know, less modern sounding
and it translates very well, I must say. It makes the 5150 sound a lot more modern
Yeah, so there you have it. These are the Seymour Duncan Duality pickups
This is a 5150 from Peavey
