Seymour Duncan Original HB-1 Blackouts Active Humbucker  (Open Box)
Ships Internationally
Product# 301006
OVERVIEW

Lose the bad hum, crank up the tone!

Seymour Duncan Blackouts are 9-volt active humbuckers that provide more extended frequency response with less compression. Seymour Duncan engineers have captured the tone players want in an active guitar pickup design with the benefits of balanced inputs.

Not only do Seymour Duncan Blackouts active humbuckers have less hum than most active humbuckers, they also have more lows, more highs, and more output. Simply put, the Blackouts have more tone than most active pickups. Players will find far fewer problems with hum, especially near computer monitors and fluorescent lighting.

Blackouts are available in individual neck and bridge models, or as a two-pickup set. All versions come with all necessary mounting hardware, including pots, jack, and a battery clip.
