Default Seymour Duncan Distortion Mayhem SH-6 Humbucker Pair

I'm debating what new pups I want for my axe when the jolly old fat man comes to town () and I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with this set or an SH-6 pup in general. Any feedback?

The Duncan Distortion is one of my favorite bridge pickups of all time. Supposedly it is a JB with a different magnet but it sure sounds better.
I prefer to use a Duncan 59 in the neck but then I've never tried a DD neck pickup so I don't know what they sound like.

Awesome. I just need to make sure it can handle what I want (super fucking high gain).

Yes and it stays tight, doesn't get flubby, you still have note definition. I use a Duel Rec on the red channel cranked and the pickup works. You can get good controlled feedback too, squeals like a pig.

I have a matched set in my Industrial SG (all aluminum). If killing is your game then these are your pickups!

As Jon said the bridge model is just plain nasty...thick and abrasive but with a clear attack and lots-o harmonics. The SH-6n is like the bridge model but with less gain and a little more bottom & mids. Kinda reminds me of the Duncan Custom with the volume slightly rolled back. This is not the pickup for doing those cute emo dynamics...it doesn't care much about pick attack. It does provide a nice thick distorted rhythm tho and a change of pace from the bridge pup.

Remember to lay down some plastic and wear a raincoat...It's a Gwar show in pickup form.

I Think I'll go with the set from what I've heard. I don't want to have to get my guitar rewired to be active and all that. If the set is high gain enough and passive, it'll be a cheaper process.

I've got the set in my Ibanez, they replaced the Dimarzio Super Distortion as my favorite pick up. Nice and chunky but still clear and very good at metal and rock, I play in a cover band and these things can even play Shania Twain songs great.
