As you’d expect, the Dimebucker SH-13 from Seymour Duncan offers the same kind of ultra-high output that makes conjuring face-melting metal tones that it’s namesake was famous for. In case you haven’t guessed, that namesake would be “Dimebag” Darrell, the Texas guitarist that rose to fame providing the riffage for metal legends Pantera, and later Damageplan, and the Dimebucker SH-13 has that aggressive tone in spades. And speaking of tone, the blade-style design keeps the tone consistent through the most devastating bends. Fore pure metal, it’s the Dimebucker SH-13.
Seymour Duncan Dimebucker SH-13 at a Glance:
- Complete setup
The Dimebucker uses a powerful ceramic magnet coupled with stainless steel blades for hard-hitting crunch. The SH-13 has both high d.c. resistance and a high resonant peak. The result is a high-output, aggressive humbucker with more treble bite and clarity than an SH-8 Invader, as well as punchy bass response and exceptional dynamics. The blades make the Dimebucker great for balanced bends. The SH-13 Dimebucker comes with four-conductor hookup cable and its own form-fitting mounting ring.
For searing leads, the Dimebucker SH-13 is a perfect fit in the bridge position. Dimebag complemented the Dimebucker by using a ’59 Model in the neck for P.A.F. tones. The Dimebucker is suitable for use in any instrument, as the double blades make this pickup suitable for both humbucker and Trembucker string spacings. This metal maniac comes in any color you like – as long as it’s black!
