Application
True single-coil pickup that makes a Strat sound like a Tele. Recommended for country, pop, rockabilly, blues, jam, classic rock and heavy rock.

Description
If you want the twangy, muscular punch of a gutsy Tele® in your Strat®, the APST-1 is for you. One of the secrets is the copper-coated steel bottom plate. Combine that with the aggressive coil windings, the Alnico 2 magnets wrapped in plain enamel wire, and the result is a high-output, single-coil, twang-beast.

Complete setup
Recommended for the bridge position with either APS-2s (for a maple fingerboard) or SSL-2s (for a rosewood fingerboard) in the neck and middle positions.

Guitars
For all well-balanced instruments. Works equally well with maple and rosewood fingerboards

Available mods
Reverse wound, reverse polarity (RW/RP) middle pickups for hum canceling in positions "2" and "4" on the five-way switch.

Players
Peter Stroud / Sheryl Crow, Chuck Garvey / moe., Ric Latina / John Berry & Rhonda Vincent

 

RRP £75.95

It’s pretty simple.  Seymour Duncan is to pickups what Pirelli is to car tyres…  Quite frankly no-one can rival the Seymour Duncan company for their design and drive to create the very best in guitar and bass pickups.  Testaments come from top guitarist across the world including Slash, Jeff Loomis, Gus G, Joe Bonamassa, Paul Stanley, Mark Holcomb, Synyster Gates, Wes Borland… who’ve chosen Duncan pickups for decades; also, not to forget the brands such as Schecter, ESP and Ibanez who regularly load their guitar with Duncan pickups straight out of the factory.

 

Enough with the testimonials, what is it that makes Seymour Duncan’s pickups so desirable?  Seymour, working at Fender Soundhouse in London, made a name for himself as the go-to guy if you wanted to get the most out of your guitar, setting up instruments for the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, and of course Jeff Beck.  Along with his wife Cathy Duncan they started the company in ‘75 effectively rewiring other people’s pickups and fixing their electronics for as little as $17.50.

 

Now based in Santa Barbara CA, Seymour Duncan remains a family run company with Seymour and Cathy still at the wind grind (sorry, couldn’t help it) today.  Steeped in its rich history Seymour Duncan has grown into a guitar pickup powerhouse having helped legendary artists like Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Van Halen and so many more achieve their signature tones.  The quality proven from pickup to pickup shows that of a company that has been perfecting its craft for over 37 years.

Although they may be well known for pickups Seymour Duncan are steadily increasing their effects pedal and gear range with new entries like the Andromeda delay which rival the Strymon Timeline and latest Powerstage power amps.  Duncan are working closely with their afore mentioned endless roster of high profile artists to create pedals that produce unique sounds you won't here anywhere else!

Seymour Duncan APST-1 Twang Banger, Bridge, Strat

I'm not going to comment on if the Twang Banger sounds like a Tele. I bought it because I wanted to try a hotter single coil for the bridge position but had found the SSL-5 to be a bit harsh and over the top. The Twang Banger is just right and gives a pit of punch but still has a sweetness to the sound. It gives good Blackmore tones as well; think of Machine head through early MK3 Purple tones. Very nice pick up.
