With the rise of Progressive Metal, Seymour Duncan wanted to voice a new bridge pickup specifically for 7 & 8 string players that would evenly accentuate every note on the fretboard no matter how much gain was thrown at it. The Pegasus uses an alnico 5 magnet and custom designed coils for balanced tone and moderate output. Huge chords and complex arpeggios are equally perfect.
Bridge only. Designed to be matched with the Sentient neck.
Offered in 7 & 8 string passive mount with naked coils or black metal covers, or in Active 'Soapbar' Mount with exposed adjustable pole pieces.
Best with bright to semi-warm woods (from Maple to Korina) with either Maple or Rosewood fingerboards.
7 and 8 -string versions.
Aaron Marshall (Intervals), Keith Merrow, Jason Frankhouser
