Free Stuff: Win Slash Seymour Duncan Pickups
Wanna sound like Slash?
Well, while you’ll just have to practise the intro to Paradise City until your fingers remember it, at least you have a chance to get your sound right.
Seymour Duncan are giving away ten sets (pairs) of the Slash Signature Humbuckers. I actually haven’t heard these pickups in person yet but the specs are sufficient to make me feel they’re going to sound great.
They’ve got AlNiCo II magnets and are wound just slightly hot – should be enough for some nice crunch and sustain without getting that overwound sound. I’m currently rationalising my upcoming projects to see if I can justify a set.
Of course, I’ll have to buy the damn things. If, however, you live in the US, you can enter the Seymour Duncan competition to win a pair of these babies. Just answer the marketing questions on Seymour’s site and submit for a chance to get your greedy little mitts on a set of AlNiCo II Pro Slash pickups.
