Seymour Duncan Psyclone Vintage Filter'Tron pickup set - nickel
Whether you’re country pickin’ or pushing stacks of amps, the sound of Filter’Tron style pickups remains a classic, and distinctive option.
The Seymour Duncan Psyclone Vintage set recreates the distinctive sound of the original Filter’Tron pickups of the fifties and sixties. Due to tighter pole spacing, low DCR, and strong magnetism, the tone falls somewhere between a PAF style humbucker and a single-coil – warm, clear, snappy, and sweet, making it the perfect complement for country, jazz, and classic rock.
The neck pickup is designed to perfectly recreate the original Filter’Tron pickup spec from the fifties, while the bridge pickup is calibrated with a slightly hotter wind to balance output levels and create a fuller tone.
Originally designed in our Custom Shop, we took special care when sourcing materials to ensure the look and fit of the pickups are perfect – whether you’re restoring a vintage guitar, or dropping them in a modern classic.
The Psyclone Vintage pickup set is a drop in replacements for any guitar routed for Filter’Tron style pickups, and includes the correct hardware for either direct mount or pickup-ring mounting options.
Psyclone is hum cancelling and uses single conductor lead wire. Each Psyclone pickup is handmade in Santa Barbara, CA.
