Santa Barbara, CA –Seymour Duncan announces the release of the latest addition to our popular Blackouts Humbucker series; the Blackouts AHB-3 Thomson EMTY. Mick Thomson from Slipknot asked for tighter bottom, and more searing top end cut, and Seymour Duncan delivered with the EMTY, a pulverizing new edition to our Blackouts line. Mick depends on EMTY to execute his completely psychosocial tone that defines the Slipknot sound; because to play extreme metal, you need extreme tone.
To celebrate this new release, Seymour Duncan is giving fans the chance to win Mick Thomson’s signature Ibanez© MTM1 with Mick’s new signature Seymour Duncan Blackouts EMTY installed. Ten second place winners will receive signed sets of EMTY pickups and a host of third place winners get Slipknot or Seymour Duncan swag. To win, contestants need to go to: www.seymourduncan.com/mickblackouts and enter into the drawing. The contest runs to midnight January 31, 2010.
Mick stayed involved every step of the way from the precise wiring configuration to the logo and printing on the pickup including his renowned number seven imprinted right on the side of the casing. Seymour Duncan blackouts EMTY come in both neck and bridge and are available in black plastic or black nickel covers. Pickups come with all necessary mounting hardware, including pots, jack, and a battery clip.
