Seymour Duncan SSL-4 Quarter-Pound Flat
Images SSL-4 Quarter-Pound Flat
No strat 'quack'
A simple though powerful!
Mounted on a MM Gibson (mahogany) and played through a distortion Wampler Triple Wreck, large saturation achieved is surprising for a single coil, very powerful and clear.
More "heavy" with my Texas Special Tele rise in any case as a benchmark (with the same pedal / amp).
Since yesterday, I have these new pickups (installed with my little fingers), I DO NOT FEEL MORE SHIP ... I told myself before that was versatile scraper for amateur and now she is versatile with a pro sound and stage.
If you have the same type of guitar and you want to do everything in one, micro adopt this configuration. With SH2n one makes Django or Hendrix or a prelude to Beethoven, I SSL4 with Gilmour and Chris Rea Blues to then I Fenderise in intermediate, and finally with SH4 i am born to be wild. The SH2 is downright beautiful and SSL4 surprised by her presence as a single coil as a prince among the 2 doubles.
I have a guitar with a simple handle and double easel. I put a PAF 59 'at Seymour Duncan bridge and I liked it very much. But then, I also put a DiMarzio HS-3 has a handle that output level even lower than a vintage! So when I crunch in wholesale easel, I had a clean round in ... How uncool. I tried a fender custom shop 69, a fender american standard, but nothing to do, I wanted a real sound simple microphone with a sufficient level.
Being a fan of Blackmore I turned to the SSL-4, which was given by the winning site with a SD 59 'in easel.
Well I'm glad! I have as much power as a PAF (to say) but the sound is like a single. We are not in the right and power of a double but the twang / singing just a very great force under the foot. The SSL-4 is set as high as twice the power is similar and therefore no cosmetic defect!
Negative point: What is available in white and can not cover. My home is a concern because my guitar is supposed to be all white with white hoods without holes as EMG so I'll have to tinker it.
It's really a good microphone that is not expensive, is very balanced, can hold the rope with a double which is very handy when you want a simple powerful passed without P90 or twice the simple format. It is also sensitive to interference than just so we do not protect a double or better, protection suppressors of hs-3! (A monster of the side). Level dimension is smaller than a conventional bonnet and wide so there's a little day by about 1mm.
In short I love my neck pickup and I'm not about to let go of that.
