Product Description

Good news! -- Seymour Duncan has released their most popular pickup models in pre-matched sets, to take the guesswork out of determining which pickups work well together. Each matched set is targeted to a specific type of customer and their musical taste. Includes all necessary mounting hardware and wiring instructions.

The Distortion Mayhem Set includes a duo of SH-6 Duncan Distortion humbuckers for the neck and bridge positions. This is an aggressive youth-oriented set, which was designed for the heaviest punk, metal, and hardcore guitar tones.

Duncan believes these offerings will take the guesswork out of matching complete retrofit sets of guitar pickups. All of the pickups in the matched sets are hand built in Duncan's Santa Barbara, California workshop and include all necessary mounting hardware and wiring instructions.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Seymour Duncan products.
If you have additional warranty questions, please contact the manufacturer at 805-964-9610
Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (14 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Seymour Duncan's best set on the market."
Sound: For the price of this set, you will not find any other pickups to touch them. Sharp clean sound wither using distortion or clean. I would recommend these to anyone wanting to wake up you sound with out going full on active. They are right under my ZW EMG's, not by much. Feature: Only thing about these pickups has nothing to do with the pickups. Seymour Duncan needs to drop the slotted screws and go with a phillips or even cooler go to a socket head or torx head style. I know not everyone has the torx head, but for the look it would give and the 3 dollars at the local department store for one you can not complain much. The slotted screw does make it difficult to start the screws. But these pickups are hardcore awesome. Ease of Use: These pickups are so responsive to sound you can breath on them and they pickup! They made my custom Les Paul I was building Scream. But what really shocked me I did not lose my Sweet Clean sound that I love with the Les. For the price of this set you will not find anything to touch them or I have not found any other brand that could. Quality: I have always loved Seymour Duncan pickups. They are road tested and are some of the best you can buy. Value: Best price on the market. Will have another set for to long just in case I find another toy to put them in. Manufacturer Support: I installed the pickups myself, just went with they wiring diagrams on the site and they had every style of wiring set up you could imagine. Way to go Seymour!!!! The Wow Factor: It would be cool if they would do the same style pickups with the options of covered chrome, black outs, and etc... This set is in my opinion the best Seymour has out. Why not give options too. Overall: I expect these pickups will be in the Les Paul as long as I own it. I don't see myself changing them. I will be adding a tap before to long to give more range and sound.

"there seymour duncans what do u expect?"
Sound: the sound that these humbuckers produce is absolutly amazing. i dropped these seymour duncans into an old 1997 eppiphone that i bought form a friend. i didnt expect the sound to change drasticaly because it was an eppi but i was way wrong. i play at drop c and these pickups handel it great! the lows are beastly and the highs are crisp and punchey. if ur looking for a great set of pickups for metal or punk i suggest u stop looking and buy the distortion mayhams but if ur looking to play clean then this might not be the best option. Ease of Use: u drop these bad boys into any guitar and ur good to go. as long as u know what ur doing these humbuckers are very easy to use. Value: these pickups are well worth the money and there already pre matched so u dont spend money on a pickup combination that dosent work out. The Wow Factor: i would rather have these pickups than my friend! they dont exactaly look y but its whats on the inside that counts right? Overall: these distortion mayhams do everything that i could ever want from a pickup. they give virtually no feedback, handals dropped tuning like no other, they are already pre matched for the best sound and they dont cost a fortchune!
Style of Music: , metal, blues, anything but country

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
