Seymour Duncan SH-14 CUSTOM 5拾音器

原文:Santa Barbara, California – How often do a company’s most devoted customers get to design a product? Seymour Duncan’s new SH-14 Custom 5 pickup was developed by an eager group of contributors to their on-line User Group Forum, who realized they could get different tones by switching around magnets in various humbucker pickups. A common “mod” involved replacing the ceramic or alnico 2 magnet in either an SH-5 Custom or SH-11 Custom Custom humbucker with an Alnico 5 magnet. The mod became so common it developed a cult following with the tongue-in-cheek moniker of “Custom Custom Custom.”
After numerous requests, Seymour Duncan’s product development team responded to their customers by releasing the pickup as a production model: and the SH-14 Custom 5 was born! Even the product’s name was chosen in a vote amongst the website’s loyal supporters. The number “5” refers to the alnico 5 magnet. “This is an example of empowering customers with a true voice in company’s product line-up,” says Evan Skopp, Duncan’s VP of Sales, Marketing and Product Development. “Seymour Duncan recognizes that we’re nothing without our customers.”
Tonally, the Custom 5 is a compromise between the SH-5 Custom and the SH-11 Custom Custom. Users favor it because it offers the optimum balance of warmth, punch, power and clarity. Compared to the SH-5 and SH-11, the tone is more vintage-like, with less distortion, but still very strong and powerful. It’s fuller than an SH-5 with softer highs, more bass, and slightly less output. It’s got a great rhythm sound and a beautiful, deep singing lead tone. Clean sounds are rich and full with enhanced presence. Duncan’s customers describe the Custom 5 as a higher output SH-1 ’59 with a deeper bottom end and expanded output.
The Custom 5 is hand-built in Seymour Duncan's Santa Barbara, California facility and comes in black, white or zebra (black and cream). It includes four-conductor cable, and is available in traditional or Trembucker string spacing. It is recommended for the bridge position.

由Seymour Duncan和其消费者共同设计出来的天才拾音器SH-14 CUSTOM 5

     能有多少拾音器的生产厂家能把设计放到消费者中去?SH-14,Seymour Duncan最新推出的拾音器,就是在网上采用了很多热心消费者的意见后生产出来的杰作。
     这些消费者认为可以通过改变拾音器中的磁棒可以得到不同的音色,在SH-14中,就是针对SH-5和SH-11的磁体类型进行了改变,把alnico 2和ceramic 换成了alnico 5,之所以要这么做的一个想法是消费者想到了一个口头禅叫“CUSTOM CUSTOM CUSTOM”(SH-11叫CUSTOM CUSTOM ,NEIL ZAZA的CORT签名款就用SH-11)
    在消费着强大呼吁下,Seymour Duncan的研发小组终于推出了SH-14,连名字都是遵循网上的意见,数字“5”表示alnico 5磁体,就好象是Seymour Duncan的销售经理所说的“我们除了我们的消费者,别无选择”
    在音色上面,SH-14借于SH-5和SH-11之间,不论是原声还是节奏、主音,SH-14提供一种更平衡的表现力,SH-14音色更加VINTAGE,失真小,但是又不失力量,比起SH-5来说,SH-14更饱满,高音柔和,低音浑厚,输出比较小。SH-14的原声表现更加出色,消费者们都说SH-14音色很接近SH-1 59,但是却比SH-1 59更有力量。
    SH-14是手工生产,Seymour Duncan推荐放在琴桥位置。
