Voiced by Mark Holcomb, his signature Alpha & Omega pickups are now available once again due to popular demand! Previously available only through the Seymour Duncan Custom Shop, these pickups are now available to everyone. This set includes both the Alpha neck pickup and the Omega bridge pickup and is designed specifically for 8-string guitars.
The progressive metal virtuosos of Periphery are known for their technically complex rhythms and precise tones – tones which require pickups with just the right amount of output and articulation whether standing alone or working in a dense mix. The Alpha and Omega pickups were created to match that level of precision and versatility.
The Mark Holcomb Alpha neck pickup is unlike most traditional neck models. It was voiced to combine the best qualities of a neck and a bridge pickup, with some of that fat glassy sound but also plenty of your pick attack and fretting-hand phrasing.
The Mark Holcomb Omega bridge pickup was created to provide destructive percussion and growl in the mids and low end. It's aggressive but it also has lots of clarity and brightness, which cuts through whether you’re playing sophisticated chords, complex single-note lines or intense solos.
The Mark Holcomb Signature Alpha & Omega Pickups are made in the Seymour Duncan facility in Santa Barbara, California.
"The Alpha/Omega set has been the heartbeat of my sound for the past several years. Since we developed and released the first 6-string set in the custom shop, I’ve had the same pickup set in every one of my 6, 7 and 8-string guitars, live and in the studio. It has remained one of the few components of my rig and setup that I haven’t even thought about tweaking."
