Seymour Duncan Releases The Dimebag Set
By HC News |
The Dimebucker uses a powerful ceramic magnet coupled with stainless steel blades for vulgar attitude. The secret to the Dimebucker's hard-hitting crunch is the small amount of metal mass in the core of the pickup. This allows the Dimebucker to have both high d.c. resistance (16.25k ohms ) and a high resonant peak (5.1k Hz). The result is a pickup with lots of biting treble, punchy bass, immense clarity and eyebrow raising squeal harmonics. With such enormous power it requires a neck pickup that can provide an equal compliment of balance and versatility. The new Dime set comes with a Dimebucker bridge and a '59 bridge for the neck, which is what Dime preferred as the companion to the Dimebucker. The '59 provides a tone that is warm and smooth and the use of the bridge version in the neck gives increased output for a better balance with the Dimebucker.
