With the rise of Progressive Metal, Seymour Duncan wanted to voice a new bridge pickup specifically for 7 and 8 string players that would evenly accentuate every note on the fretboard no matter how much gain was cranked up. The Pegasus uses an alnico 5 magnet and has custom designed coils for a balanced tone and moderate output. Huge chords and complex arpeggios are equally perfect.
Built exclusively for 7 and 8 string players, the Sentient neck pickup is the perfect neck pickup for natural, complex warmth and tight articulation. With an alnico 5 magnet and medium strength coils, the blend of vintage PAF and modern tones sounds excellent in both clean and high gain settings.
