The SSL-1s is a calibrated set of three SSL-1 pickups, with staggered pole pieces. This set includes two of the standard wound SSL-1 pickups, along with one Reverse Wound, Reverse Polarity (RWRP) pickup for hum cancelling in the 2 and 4 switch positions. Each pickup is individually hand calibrated for the neck, middle and bridge positions.
The Seymour Duncan SSL-1 is a vintage-correct true single-coil for warm instruments. Recommended for country, pop, surf, rockability, blues, ska and classic rock.
The SSL-1 is Seymour Duncan's most popular single-coil for Strat. The hand-ground Alnico 5 magnets and moderate windings (Heavy Formvar wire) yield a bright and punchy tone with vintage output. Perfect for players who need accurate traditional single-coil tone, especially with clean and mildly distorted amp settings. Compared to the APS-1, the SSL-1 has a more focused "bell" tone with a light bass response.
Comes with waxed cloth hookup cable and vintage-style "keyed" bottom plate. For warmer toned ash, alder or basswood body instruments. Works especially well with rosewood finger-boards.
Players include Chris Hicks, Kent Wells & Land Scott / Reba McEntire, Dan Schafer / Shania Twain, David Levitt / Alanis Morissette, Doug Pettibone / Lucinda Williams, Scott Henderson / Tribal Tech & Scott Henderson Trio, Jimmy Crespo.
