Saw this on Seymour Duncan's Twitter:
guess he wasn't getting enough sales from his arcane pickup or the old screamin demon
Isn't this the one based on a Duncan Distortion he used in the '80s?
I heard that Alex Skolnick will be releasing his own Seymour Duncan pickup in the fall. That is what he told me when I met him
Ummm when was the last time George Lynch actually relevant?
Given it's been in the ESP sig for several years, about time.
Dude's actually busy AF nowadays, and his work with KXM was really killer. Dude can still apparently move gear is he's still getting new signature guitarsH, amps, pickups, etc etc.
But how much real power does he have outside of his friendship to the ESP president? Dont get me wrong, I LOVE George Lynch as a guitarist, and after seeing him at the Dokken reunion show at Loud Park, the dude still has it (he only made one tiny mistake during mr. scary). However, I can see that he doesn't have the same clout that he used to, which is why I question them releasing a new pickup in his name. Hell, as much as ESP bends over backwards to get their artists smeared all over the guitar and metal mags over here in Japan, george lynch is an afterthought compared to people like Takasaki Akira, or that putz Oomura Takayoshi (or even as much as Randy Rhoads or John Petrucci for that matter).
But Randy Rhoads and John Petrucci are god!
If I were interested in passives, this might be cool to have. Get a Screamin Demon in one guitar, and a Hunter in the other to compare the two.
Warren DeMartini, Skolnick and more Lynch....how about a Ritchie Sambora humbucker...? Maybe a Dave “snake” Sabo ‘bucker is in order lol...we need, no...demand a Reb Beach signature humbucker...as much as I love all the shredders from the 80’s/90’s the signature gear needs to slow down -especially pickups
The Screamin’ Demon is a good sounding pickup though...I’ve had a couple
Yeah, I've never really thought Reb's tone was all that much to write home about in order to warrant a signature pickup.
I bought a Kitty Hawk Quattro preamp back in the day because I kept hearing about Reb Beach using them...it was the cheesiest piece of equipment I’ve ever bought. I remember questioning everything I thought about him after that haha
To Warrant a pickup?...”don’t you mean Winger?”- Ace
"It says here we're Ratt!"
Arcane isn't a super well known company, and I've read here and there quite a few times that, while the pickups are indeed great, the guy made himself unreachable to many customers, and this must have da,aged his businness quite a lot (tho he works for guitar brands now, apparently).
The Demon is a splendid pickup, but it wont do what the name would suggest...
Yep, it's essentially a full production Dokkenbucker
They couldnt be more different, no need to compare them really.
That said, there isnt a thing about the pickup in the whole web as far as vids goes, except this one
Which sounds awful, and in which he playes awfully
Randy? Yes. Petrucci? He can take his faux prog crap and piss off
Guess the George Lynch I saw during the dokken reunion show was him on a good day...
"We play both kinds, country AND western"
What's the downside to having more gear to choose from? If you're not interested, you can vote with your wallet by not buying. This stuff must be selling or they wouldn't keep producing it.
