Seymour Duncan have unveiled a brand new pickup that combines the most favorable characteristics of both active and passive guitar pickups into one comprehensive unit.

In an age in which the lines between genres are consistently blurred and divergent sounds are frequently used in conjunction with one another, the Seymour Duncan Duality Pickup sees itself as a welcome addition to the modern guitarist's arsenal.

Helping today's guitarist to achieve a tone of an exceptionally versatile nature, the duality pickup places more of an emphasis on the pickup coils and magnet as opposed to the traditional actives. With this innovative pairing, your guitar will produce all the low noise, high headroom and signal strength integrity of active pickups. Integrating passive voicing and active dynamics into one design, the Duality pickup provides a strong mid range which is complemented by a punchy and articulate low end.

With an articulate response and feel, the guitarist is provided with an exceptionally organic and natural feeling tone. Able to tackle intricate chords and technical riffs alike, the pickup sees itself at home within any genre. Much unlike traditional active pickups, Duality's distinctive hybrid design brings the same tonal flexibility as passive pickups with the added benefits of an on board active preamp.

An incredibly adaptable design , the Duality pickup provides your guitar with capability of being able to take any genre or playing style in its stride. A brand that have forever been at the forefront of innovative sound design, Seymour Duncan have consistently provided the modern day guitarist with a multitude of tonal options to help define their musical identity.
