Detailed Description

Seymour Duncan Dimbag Signature Set - SH-1 '59 and Dimebucker

The Dimebag set gives you the pickups “Dimebag Darrell” Abbot used to for pure annihilation with Pantera and Damageplan both live and in the studio – the Dimebucker and SH-1 ’59 bridge humbucker. The Dimebucker uses a powerful ceramic magnet coupled with stainless steel blades for vulgar attitude. The secret to the Dimebucker’s hard-hitting crunch is the small amount of metal mass in the core of the pickup. This allows the Dimebucker to have both high d.c. resistance (16.25k ohms ) and a high resonant peak (5.1k Hz). The result is a pickup with lots of biting treble, punchy bass, immense clarity and eyebrow raising squeal harmonics. With such massive power it requires a neck pickup that can provide an equal compliment of balance and versatility. The new Dime set comes with a Dimebucker bridge and a ’59 bridge for the neck, which is what Dime preferred as the companion to the Dimebucker. The ’59 provides a tone that is warm and smooth and the use of the bridge version in the neck gives increased output for a better output balance with the Dimebucker.

In a 2004 interview, Dimebag described the tone of the Dimebucker: “It’s very saturated–not to the point where it’s overly fuzzy–but it has a smooth and crunchy distortion tone. It will give you some extra gain, but it won’t go so far that your sound breaks up and is going crazy. You get that warm tone with the distortion mixed in and it has the low end that’s kicking you in the butt while the top end is cutting your face off in the right way, but not ripping your face off. If you ever listen to a Pantera record, that’s what you’ll hear through this pickup.” –Dimebag Darrell

While Dimebag relied on our SH-1 ’59 neck pickup for many years before officially joining the Seymour Duncan family, once the Dimebucker was installed in his guitars in 2000 it was necessary for the slightly hotter ’59 to be installed to give some extra teeth to his solos. He went with the ’59 bridge version which is now available as a set with the Dimebucker in either black or zebra.

  • Application
    Ultra high output bridge-position blade humbucker built for aggressive playing styles, combined with a warm, smooth neck pickup for fluid solos. Recommended for rock, metal, hard-hitting solos and other heavy rock styles
  • Description
    While Dimebag relied on the the SH-1 '59 neck pickup for many years before collaborating with us on his signature pickup, the completion of the high output Dimebucker made it necessary to switch to the slightly hotter '59. The combination of the Dimebucker (which uses a powerful ceramic magnet coupled with stainless steel blades for vulgar attitude in the bridge) and the bridge version of the '59 used in the neck provides an equal compliment of balance and annihilation. Comes in short legged version with four-conductor hookup cable and its own form-fitting mounting ring.
  • Guitars
    For all instruments. The double blades make the Dimebucker suitable for both humbucker and Trembucker string spacings.
  • Available mods
    Set available with either a black '59 or zebra. The Dimebucker is available in black only.
