|First launched as a UK exclusive limited edition, the Whole Lotta Humbucker set of Seymour Duncan guitar pick-ups now is made available worldwide. It will be showcased at Musikmesse Frankfurt 2013. Another Seymour Duncan pick-up set, the Joe Bonamassa Signature, has been nominated for the prestigious MIPA, Musikmesse International Press Award. Winners will be announced during Musikmesse 2013.
The Whole Lotta Humbucker set was based off Seymour's experience working at the Fender Soundhouse with artists like Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page and many others. Seymour recalls, "When I'd work on one of those great old guitars for a client, I liked to rewind the pickups with 42-gauge plain-enamel wire. I'd also insert sand-cast Alnico magnets with a better-balanced magnetic field, which made the B and high E sound as powerful as the other strings. This modified pickup had more output and a higher frequency response. The Whole Lotta Humbucker set is a replica of these special pickups with 8.78k DC resistance for the bridge pickup, 8.20k for the neck, custom winding pitch, and a calibrated sand-cast Alnico magnet. I have such great memories of living in London, so I'm thrilled to be producing this pickup once again."
