The zebra TB-15 Alternative 8 from Seymour Duncan is a bridge humbucker pickup with a wide pole piece spacing for symmetrical positioning under the strings of guitars with a tremolo or wide-spaced hardtail bridge (2" or wider from the center of the Low E to High E directly over the bridge pickup). Like the SH-15 Alternative 8, the TB-15 utilizes high-output coils with a powerful alnico 8 bar magnet to produce the sweet treble response of an alnico 2 magnet with the midrange emphasis of an alnico 5 and the power or a ceramic magnet. The result is a huge, punchy high-output sound that doesn't become overly fizzy, and cuts through without sounding harsh. Other features include a nickel-silver bottom plate, a 4-conductor lead wire for multiple wiring options, and vacuum wax potting for squeal-free performance. The Alternative 8 is carefully hand-built in Santa Barbara, CA.
