Seymour Duncan continue their plans for global domination with another pedal added to their growing 2014 line up with an updated version of their sought after Seymour Duncan Pickup Booster. The new graphic treatment is a massive improvement, not that it should matter what it looks like but admit it, you want pedals that look as good as they sound right?
“With its class A, low-noise circuit design the Pickup Booster is exceptional at emphasizing a guitar’s natural sound while adding some muscle and fatness. The Gain control can now be turned down to unity (0dB).”
The pedal is actually capable of 25dB of boost so great to use either as a clean boost or to add sustain and saturation to an already overdriven tone.
We also added a discrete push-pull output stage that gives you increased drive capability. So even with the Gain knob down at 0dB and a long cable length, your signal chain will sound cleaner”.
A cool feature on this pedal is a Resonance Switch which allows you to make single coils sound like a vintage or high output humbucker. The Pickup Booster is assembled in Santa Barbara, California and is True-Bypass. Check out a demo of the pedal in action below.
