New Pickup Day: Seymour Duncan Sentient & Pegasus

Just installed the new Seymour Duncan Pegasus (bridge) and Sentient (neck) pickups in my Ibanez Iron Label 8-string. So far so awesome! These are passive humbuckers, and I got the versions housed in active-style casings to fit the big EMG routs. Wired up a 5-way superswitch to have single coil settings in the 2 and 4 positions, and humbuckers in 1, 3 and 5.

The Sentient is a really dynamic, interactive pickup that responds especially well when you really dig in with the pick. And the Pegasus is a really good all-round rock/prog/metal pickup with good separation between notes in complex chords. The split coil sounds are good too, especially the Sentient.

Awesome, I'd love to hear six string versions of these as well. I'm almost considering working out a way to get a seven string (without the wife killing me! ) at the every least to try these out.

Yeah, totally. Just to clarify though for anyone reading this who doesn't know, these are only available in 7 and 8 string versions.

I did the combo of the Nazgul in the bridge and the Sentient in the neck on my 7 string. It too sounds so awesome but don't plan on getting the Nazgul to do sparkling cleans. It does face melting VERY well though.
