Seymour Duncan Blackouts AHB-1s Active Humbucker Pickup Set
The AHB-1s active humbuckers are aggressive sounding pickups. With a 9-volt active system these pickups really push the amp. The Blackouts offer more power, a greater frequency response and less hum. The EQ of the blackouts seem to have better low end as well and better high frequencies but with scooped mids.
Other American made active humbuckers use unbalanced inputs and a different preamp. The problem is, an unbalanced differential preamp is not very effective at cancelling hum. Duncans engineers figured out how to capture the tone that players want in an active design, but using balanced inputs. The result is 12dB to 14dB less noise, plus more lows, more highs, and more output. Simply put, Blackouts have more tone than other active pickups
Blackouts are shown as a two-pickup set. All versions come with all necessary mounting hardware, including 25K pots, stereo output jack, and a battery clip.
For all humbucker guitars. The blade magnets make this pickup suitable for both humbucker and Trembucker string spacings.
