Seymour Duncan Pickups: It's All About the Tone

Designed to boost the output of your Tele, the STHR-1 Hot Rails is a high output single-coil sized humbucker. This rails-style pickup is a direct replacement for an existing Tele pickup and uses a ceramic magnet and overwound coils to provide a heavy distorted sound with excellent sustain. The STHR-1 boasts a chunky midrange, letting your Tele really cut through the mix. If you're looking to augment your Tele tone with something a bit more on the rude side, drop in an STHR-1 Hot Rails and start rocking!


Seymour Duncan STHR-1 Hot Rails at a Glance:
  • Sound
  • Complete setup

Sound
The STHR-1 Hot Rails is a high output single-coil size rails humbucker that's great for classic rock, garage, punk, heavy rock, thrash, classic metal, and nu-metal. It delivers a fat, full sound with incredible output. The powerful ceramic magnet, two steel blades, and overwound coils all combine to provide a heavy, raw, distorted tone with incredible sustain. Compared to the Little '59, Hot Rails has more output and a chunkier midrange. The STHR-1 comes only in black with four-conductor cable.

Complete setup
Available in lead (bridge) position only, the STHR-1 matches up well with a Vintage Rhythm Stack for a totally quiet rig or with a Hot Rhythm for an all around hot axe. The STHR-1 is for all well-balanced instruments and works equally well with maple and rosewood fingerboards.

Seymour Duncan Hot Rails

Very pleased with the results. Extremely responsive, great tone!
4.5/5

Big tone comes in small packages

Great pickup for hard rock and metal. This pickup is also just as hot as the full size buckers like the Distortion or Custom. Its very warm and chunky and definitely has an emphasis on the mids and low mids but without a choked out top end. Its pretty unique sounding so I can't compare it to any other pickup except maybe a Duncan Distortion with more midrange chunk and a little less top end sizzle. The cleans can be a little honky, but thats not why you buy this pickup to begin with ;) Although with some EQ adjustments it could work.
