Gearank High Notes

Gearank Recommendation

The Seymour Duncan SH-8b appeared on our recommended list for Budget Guitar Pickups Under $100 in 3 consecutive editions from December 2019 until October 2022 when it was removed due to a price increase that put it above the $100 price limit.

Overview

The Seymour Duncan SH-8b Invader visually stands out with its oversized metal oxide pole pieces. These pole pieces work together with three large ceramic magnets and overwound coils, resulting in expanded frequency handling.

This gives the SH-8b a fuller sound that can handle drop tunings with ease.

Notable users of this pickup include Synyster Gates from Avenged Sevenfold and Tom Delonge from Blink 182 highlighting its strengths in punk, rock and metal.
