Alright, it’s been a long while since I did
a proper pickup video Simply for the reason that I absolutely hate soldering more than I hate ba- I was gonna say babies, but that’s not entirely true No, soldering is probably what I hate the most in my life. Anyway, I had my guitar tech install them for me and … That’s cool, huh? Being able to say
that I have my guitar tech It sounds better if I say that my good friend Kent installed the pickups for me So I don’t have to spend time doing
what I hate the most in life. So, today I’m doing the Seymour Duncan Duality
set of pickups and … Truth be told, I haven’t heard a word
about these pickups so I googled like, you know, any normal human being would do and I found one video with Keith Merrow and obviously, because it’s Keith Merrow,
it sounds super awesome and killer And … Yeah, but I couldn’t find any other video So I guess it’s just up to me to see
if I can sound killer through them, so yeah. the Duality pickups are supposed to be
a newer pickup design and it is an active set of pickups But should be sounding like a good mix of a passive and active pickup, for a more organic type of sound It’s supposedly an Alnico 2- … pickup. And as I’m a big fan of Alnico, I’m very much, you know, expecting to like this. I don’t know, we’ll just see. So, let’s try it out. The Duality set is mounted on a Solar A2.6 going straight into my Randall Satan 50 that goes
into my Hesu 2×12 cabinet and micing it all up is my Beyerdynamic M150 … M160 Alright, so let’s go. We need to push ‘record’ Record, oh. There’s a good amount of chunk in these pickups and, you know, it has a lot of bite So, I think these pickups would sound awesome in like
a more classic amplifier like a Dual Rectifier, or a 5150 So … There’s just a little bit too much bite for my Satan. So, I’ll just dial down the grind a little bit. Okay, let’s try it with the clean channel. Wow Works really good for cleans Oh, that was cool. They’re a little bit too modern sounding
for the Randall Satan But I think this would go perfect with a Dual Rectifier
or a 5150 You know, to spice it up a little bit like that I decided, because I have no life Ta-da! Yeah, let’s just try it in a 5150 and see
how it sounds there. It’s all for my awesome audience, which is you guys And where the F- is the Fff- fart button? Oh, it’s here. Okay, fart. I’m ready. Okay, very interesting guys. Very, very, very interesting. Will I prove my theory that I think that these Duality pickups will sound awesome in this 5150? We’re just gonna see, right now. I have the gain on 2 right now. It’s very tight. Come on you f***ing amp, you’re in the way. Can I just roll back a little? Thank you. Yeah, this 5150 just makes a lot more sense
with these pickups and yeah, sometimes Satan is not the answer, okay? I’m fine with that. Sometimes Jesus is the answer. You tell me Sorry, no, do not make this into a religious discussion We’re just talking amplifiers and guitar pickups. Okay? Good. Because you can hear here Hear here You can hear, when I’m playing right now, that this bite that was a little too much on the Satan Fits really well with the 5150, which is a lot more,
you know, less modern sounding and it translates very well, I must say.
It makes the 5150 sound a lot more modern Yeah, so there you have it. These are the Seymour Duncan Duality pickups This is a 5150 from Peavey I’m Ola Englund and you’ve just watched
