Updated, redesigned, and re-launched version of LiveWires Metal humbucker with new preamp, new voicing, and ability to switch between output levels. Perfect for all styles of metal, punk, garage, thrash, drop tunings, and heavy rock.

Blackouts Metal pickups are voiced for extreme heaviness. They are Seymour Duncan's highest output electric guitar pickups. Period. They have a screaming voice with amazing mid-range punch and they produce thick, dark chords, and hard-hitting leads. When you play extreme aggressive styles and you have to cut through above the other instruments in your band, Blackouts Metal are the call.

There's only one version of Blackouts Metal, but you can dial up two very different output levels (see below). Paired with the available Seymour Duncan SFX-04 Twin Tube Mayhem effects pedal, Blackouts Metal pickups in high-output mode are so extreme, so brutal, and so vicious, you might want to check with local law enforcement to make sure they're legal. Not really. But you get the idea.

Use Blackouts Metal pickups in any humbucker-routed electric guitar. Includes 25K pots, stereo jack, battery clip, pin jumper (see below), and other mounting hardware. Blackouts Metal have a unique dual pin configuration on the underside of the pickup for two modes of output: loud and louder. With the same aggressive tonality in each mode, you now have a choice in output. With the jumper removed, you have a high output bridge humbucker that's still compatible with a neck pickup or the clean channel on your amp. However, with the jumper in place, you unleash all the raw power, incredible output, and untamed aggression. The pins can also be wired to a mini-switch or push/pull, for an on board boost! Not splittable. Available with black or white covers.
