Dabbling in pickup design using hi favourite Seymour Duncan pickups, Brandon concocted a hybrid pickup combining two of his favourite Parallel Axis™ models: The North coil of a Crazy 8 and the hotter South coil of a Parallel Axis™ Trembucker Distortion, along with the Alnico 2 bar magnet from an RTM.
No stranger to the sound of Seymour Duncan, Brandon Ellis has become known as one of the most innovative guitarists in heavy music, and his work with The Black Dahlia Murder shows there is no limit to his virtuosity. Dabbling in pickup design himself, Brandon concocted a hybrid pickup combining two of his favorite Parallel Axis™ models: The result is the Dyad, a high output Humbucker with a sizzly bite and a super articulate pick attack that perfectly suited Brandon’s needs, now available from our Custom Shop!

The result is the Dyad, a high output Humbucker with a sizzly bite and a super articulate pick attack that perfectly suited Brandon’s needs. Despite being a single bridge pickup, the Dyad offers more tones than meets the eye. Flipping the pickup upside down, in Brandon’s words “offers a chewier, mid-range focused sound for guitarists looking for more body out of their instrument in standard tunings.”
The Dyad is available in humbucker and trembucker spacing, and comes standard with dual Seymour Duncan logos facing inward in tribute to Brandon’s original homemade design.
