Gearank Recommendation

The SHR-1b appeared on our recommended list for Single Coil Sized Pickups in 4 consecutive editions from November 2017 until October 2022 when it was removed due to us removing single coil sized humbucking pickups from the list.


The Hot Rails Strat bridge pickup is a single coil sized humbucker with a thick, aggressive hi-gain sound.

Great for soaring guitar hero solos and thrash rhythms, this is Seymour Duncan’s highest output passive pickup for Strat.

It uses a strong ceramic magnet and overwound coils to transform your single coil guitar into a completely new instrument.

Something to know about single coil sized humbuckers is that they don’t sound like either a single coil or a humbucker pickup. They’re brighter than a humbucker, but not quite as bright as a standard single-coil pickup.
