So I'm guessing it's BKPs answer to Active pickups? That would be cool. It'd look cooler if the coils were rounded though :/

I have heard them already.  I am interested in the specs.

Well Guitar World seem to say it's for the people that like EMGs, so I'm really curious as to how it sounds compared to the default Active to Passive switch: the Miracle Man

Nolly said elsewhere that Guitar World jumped the gun.

I'm not 100% sure but I think the tracks from Nolly and Misha's side project, "Snuggles", was recorded with Black Hawk loaded guitars. Popular belief. Clips and info on the main BKP website are forthcoming.

Last I heard they were tripple magnet, surprisingly low DCR (about 10iirc but capable of high output due to the strength of the magnets and efficiency of blades), and the general theme of the tone was open, clear, sensitive and very versatile. Tim wanted them to be capable of blues and rock as well as metal. This info is easy a year out of date, though, so it may be wrong. Best to ask.

wow i never thought that i would see a pickup uglier than a dimebucker or invader.

Hopefully it will deliver the goods tonally.

I have an old pickup, not sure of its heritage, but from the 70s which looks almost exactly like a blackhawk...

Are you serious? I think it looks way better than the Bill Lawrence or Dimebucker.
 
The ugliest pickup ever must be the DiMarzio D-Sonic though... very mismatched.

Id say its worse. it looks cheaper & nastier.

it actually reminds me of the stock pickups that came in my RGD
overly square and plasticy

Here's a short clip of the new Bare Knuckle Black Hawk pickup doing some blues-fusion. This will be one of the clips featured on the Black Hawk's product page on the BKP website.

Wow! That actually sounds great! Really fat and smooth. It does seem very modern sounding though (unsurprisingly) and maybe maybe slightly dark in a les Paul custom. As far as I know the les Paul custom is BKPs standard demo guitar.

I do feel that BKP should begin to do distorted rythm clips though to display articulation and how the frequencies are "balanced" in a chord.
