pretty sure the SD Blackouts are all active... if not, I'd like to know where to get some passives from as well.

Everywhere local sells them. Nobody stocks them though. You will HAVE to order them in. There are over 780 different seymour duncan pickups, most stores carry three.

EMGs are better, and half the price, plus i DO have stock :)

Are the EMG's actually better ?

We've got guitars with both and wouldn't say one is better than the other. Just different.
In a world flooded with EMG 81's its nice to see something different.

Never seen a faulty EMG, but already had some faulty Blackouts. They are SUPPOSED to sound just like the passives, but if thats the case, why bother?

I am not even a fan of EMGs, but i prefer them over the Duncan Actives.

if you want something different maybe try something low output if you're running a high gain amp....super high output pickups just aren't needed when you've got that much gain on tap; maybe even try out the duncan phat cat p90's for a change.
OR try emg's and do the 18volt mod.....

Yup, just awaiting the posters, point of sale displays, comparison tone charts, and sample sounds to be finalised. They will be available within most major retail stores throughout WA within three weeks, or direct through me now.

We recorded 75 different sound samples today: every pickup in every position (well, we ran out of time, so missed out on recording three of the less popular style pickups), through a dead clean mesa boogie, vintage dirty style Ulbrich 50w, 50w Bad Cat for more gainy sounds, and a 5150 mkI for the modern heavy sounds. So, every style of gain is catered for. Used the same cabinet, same mic, same mic position, same guitar, same setup, same strings, and same pickup heights, to keep the tone differences more noticable.
Have to now master, chop, and upload those files, and make the webpages, then a sample sounds cd, etc etc...

The models are:
Old School (Alnico II or V) in Tunomatic, Tremolo, and neck spacings. Colours: Double Black, Zebra, Chrome, Gold
Sound: Clean and open. Low output. PAF style
Old School + (Alnico II or V) in Tunomatic, Tremolo, and neck spacings. Colours: Double Black, Zebra, Chrome, Gold
Sound: Clean and open with a touch more oomph than the standard Old School. Low output. PAF with a slight bite.
Nunchucker (Alnico II or V or Ceramic) in Tunomatic or Tremolo spacings. Colours: Double Black, Zebra, Chrome, Gold
Sound: Great Rock/Metal pickup. PAF on steriods. Medium output.
Hybrid (Alnico II or V or Ceramic) in Tunomatic or Tremolo spacings. Colours: Double Black, Zebra, Chrome, Gold
Sound: Heavily mismatched coils for a true open natural sound. Designed for the guitarist who wants fantastic coil split sounds for more versatility.
Hot Rock (Alnico V or Ceramic) in Tunomatic or Tremolo spacings. Colours: Double Black, Zebra, Chrome, Gold
Sounds: Heavy Rock and Metal. Higher output to drive the front end of your tube amplifier.
Master Blaster (Alnico V or Ceramic) in Tunomatic or Tremolo spacings. Colours: Double Black, Zebra, Chrome, Gold
Sounds: Heavy Rock, Punk and Metal. High output to drive your amp and provide stunning sustain.
Super Hot (Alnico V or Ceramic) in Tunomatic or Tremolo spacings. Colours: Double Black, Zebra, Chrome, Gold
Sounds: Heavy Rock, Punk and Metal. Highest output to drive your amp and provide stunning sustain.




I have more than 70 pickups in stock, and we are winding another 30 in the next week. $199 each for all the models i make, and the same price for customs. Im also looking for pickup endorsees for gigging bands with regular gigs.

Cool, ill definitely be looking into your stock before committing myself to something possibly inferior. Plus 200 bucks is shitloads cheaper than most others.
