NAMM2016  We headed on over to Seymour Duncan to check out what’s up and coming in 2016. Here’s the rundown on what to expect from the pickup/effects giants this year!

The Palladium Gain Stage Pedal – $299

Ready to capture the feel and responsiveness of a high gain tube amp? Look no further than the new Palladium Gain Stage Pedal from Seymour Duncan! Their approach was simple: focus beyond just tonal characteristics. We feel they’ve done exactly what they sought out to! This pedal truly sounds amazing and is super versatile!

Catalina Chorus Pedal – $229

This one’s a gamechanger for sure! A highly adjustable, lush, and liquid sounding analog chorus pedal with stereo output, tone control, and a unique Dynamic Expression performance mode. You’ll get a nice, subtle effect that truly enhances your tone. Choose from a Classic Chorus setting, Vibrato, Deep 80’s goth, or an Underwater Grunge to get a sound that takes you back to the decade of your choosing!

The Jeff Loomis Blackouts Signature Series Pickup – 6 String Set: $249.95 , 7 String Set: $289.95

The perfect mix of clarity with heavy distortion from the creative mind of Jeff Loomis (Arch Enemy, Conquering Dystopia, ex-Nevermore). These active pickups give you all the big power chord sound you need, and doesn’t thin out when playing fast. The neck pickup is also very articulate and responsive, due to a more focused bass response and a slight bump in the treble frequencies. These Jeff Loomis Signature Blackouts are available in 6 and 7-string passive mount versions with black brushed nickel covers, as well as an active mount 7-string soapbar version.

Joe Bonamassa Signature Skinner Humbucker Set – $375

An exact replica of the pickups in Joe’s cherished Principal Skinner Les Paul.  Their rich, dynamic and nuanced voice will appeal to all tone connoisseurs who cherish the passion and power of the humbucker in Skinner. These are wound on the historic Leesona machine that wound the original Skinner humbucker. Alnico 3 magnets, period-correct butyrate bobbins, lightly antiqued nickel-silver covers and maple spacers heighten the vintage vibe. Each of the 800 numbered sets will be hand signed by Seymour W. Duncan and Joe Bonamassa.
