Seymour Duncan has introduced its Black Winter pickups for seven- and eight-string guitarists. The Black Winter was originally created for the extreme metal players of Scandinavia who were looking for more aggression without sacrificing definition and clarity.
Though he has dozens of amazing guitars, since 1986 Slash has used pretty much one very special Les Paul for all recording. The Alnico II Pro Slash was designed to give Slash's other Les Paul guitars—what he calls his "live guitars"—the exact tone of this legendary instrument.
The Vapor Trail is a true analog delay pedal using the famed Bucket Brigade Devices (BBDs), giving the pedal an authentic, vintage sound with warmth, fullness and depth, but with an immense clarity that keeps it from getting lost in the mix.
The Alnico 2 magnet and moderate windings yield a warm, sweet tone with more natural string vibration for great sustain. Classic rock players who get their distortion from the amp rather than the pickup love the APH-1. It allows them to back off the crunch and get beautiful clean tones with softer attack. Compared to the '59, the Alnico II Pro has a rounder sound with a spongier bass response.
Seymour Duncan recently shared a new demo video for its Dirty Deed distortion pedal, and you can check it out below. In early November, GuitarWorld.com posted an exclusive demo video for the new pedal, and you can check it out here.
Seymour Duncan and Framus have teamed up to offer a chance for one lucky musician to win a Framus Mayfield Legacy Vintage Sunburst guitar. The Legacy is a semi-hollowbody with laminated mahogany top and back, solid mahogany sides, a mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard and 22 frets featuring IFT (Invisible Fretwork Technology) and PLEK fretwork.
