Seymour Duncan Pegasus
Progressive metal players rejoice! The Pegasus humbucker delivers the perfect blend of articulation and aggression with its Alnico V magnet and medium output wind.
The Pegasus was originally designed for extended range instruments. However, 6 string players immediately demanded we offer a version to call their own. It incorporates an alnico 5 bar magnet and custom winding specs. The goal was to deliver a warm, balanced, responsive, and lush tone for progressive metal. It’s a harmonically rich pickup with a prominent midrange and a focused low end. The high resonant peak makes for a sparkly top end and an incredible “bloom” on chords in high-gain situations. The responsive and accurate pick attack ensures that you will cut through any live mix, and will have tight-tracking transients in a studio environment.
Because the Pegasus is a moderate output pickup, it works as well for clean tones as it does for distorted tones. Hand built in our Santa Barbara, CA, factory, the Pegasus features an alnico 5 bar magnet, nickel silver bottom plate, 4-conductor lead wire for multiple wiring options, and is vacuum wax potted for squeal-free performance. Available in standard 6-string humbucker and Trembucker spacings, as well as for 7 and 8-string extended range guitars.
