The Seymour Duncan SHR1B is a high output single-coil-size "rails" humbucker perfect for the Stratocaster. There is a long list of musical genres that you can explore with this pickup, such as classic rock, garage, punk, heavy rock, thrash, classic metal and nu-metal.
The SHR-1B Hot Rails Humbucker is one of the highest output and most popular pickups Seymour Duncan make. The two thin blades, strong ceramic magnet and powerful coil windings of the SHR-1B give you the incredible sustain and a fat, full-bodied sound that's needed for playing heavier rock music. The SHR-1B Hot Rails responds to the subtlest finger movements. The pickup comes with a ceramic magnet and 4-conductor lead wire for several wiring options. The pickup has been wax potted for noise-free operation, ensuring a crystal clear output.
The pickup is available for both bridge or neck/middle positions. For an incredibly versatile guitar, use an SHR-1B in the bridge position along with an SVR-1n Vintage Rails in the middle and an SCR-1n Cool Rails in the neck.
The SHR1B is capable of delivering excellent midrange harmonics and an aggressive crunch despite its high output. Plus, each single note played sizzles wonderfully. It's safe to say that this single coil rails sized humbucker can totally transform your Strat to sound like no other.
There has been a vast amount of famous musicians using the SHR1B pickup, from Janick Gers and Dave Murray of Iron Maiden, Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age, to Greg Camp of Smashmouth.
As with all Seymour Duncan pickups, the quality of the SHR1B is absolutely excellent.
