Warmest/darkest sounding BKP?
« on: May 20, 2021, 04:22:54 AM »
Hey, guys. 
  I'm looking for a bridge pickup that's more warm/darker sounding with some treble shaved off a little bit so it's not as bright.  It's for a 1997 PRS CE-24 (bolt-on maple neck/rosewood board, mahogany body/maple top, five-way rotary selector).  Right now, it's got a Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates set which I like, but I always seem to prefer warmer pickups in the bridge and brighter in the neck. 
 I'm a real big fan of the DiMarzio Breed, even like Norton and Tone Zone, but I want something different.
    From my looking at the BKP site, it seems perhaps a Silo, Warpig A5 or Juggernaut might fit the bill.  Would anyone recommend one of these or perhaps something else?  Thanks.

The alnico Warpig would be the darkest.

The Crawler is another dark one.

a-pig should sound good, but the Silo seems like a natural match too

Crawler would have been my vote, too.

Since the Crawler has been mentioned, I'd say that in my Strat it isn't a bright pickup.  It does have enough in the highs to be heard in the mix.  Strong mids and lows.  With a decent 68 plexi clone and a decent Celestion loaded 1x12 or 4x12, the lows are a tad looser than some ceramic mag pickups that I've used with that rig.  Not mushy, though.

I have not used the pickups that you mention.
