Tim.

Your second post on this topic would make a good blurb for a brochure.

It's non technical and would give someone a starting point if they were considering changing pickups.

Something like the Seymour Duncan diagram but with 4 bars: low, low-mids, high-mids, highs   +  output. And detailed description like Dimarzio (that are pretty accurate).
It would be perfect.

I thought you might be on the case :D

I reckon a simple mark out of ten for each spec to start with like on the dimarzio website,  And the a brief descriptin that describes it a bit more thouroughly.

(I would still keep the original stuff you have there as its good but a thing at the bottom with the specs would be quite cool)

E.g.

Messiahbucker

The god of all hubuckers, Extreme power that is extremely articulate with angel like harmonics. ......etc

Alnico IX magnet gives a warm but expressive sound.....etc

built for guitar dueling... can kill at 100 paces
Heavy rock and expressive guitar heavy solo's :shock:

low....8    tight as a cats spincter, as well as round and full
mid....8    Full but not pokey and spiked
high....9    screaming like a the cat with a red-hot poker in its....

output....10!!  Incorporates the power of God himself (miracles sold separetly) :twisted:


Just as a side note I hope that doesn'y offend anyone, but thats just my idea of a good lay-out and a cool PU

Cheers

MMM


Easy on the tortured cat references - some of us may be sensitive to such ideas :roll:

I'm sure Matt didn't field test anything with cats.

Or did he? :evil:  :evil:  :evil:

Back on topic, no cats here...

How about for now listing pickups in the product page in order of power?

Eg, Stormy/Mule through to the warpig, I think that something as basic as this would help!
Apache,VHII,Emerald,Nailbomb,MiracleMan,StormyMonday,BlackDog,Trilogy,Mothersmilk,Sultans+Sinner

Hi Hayden,
I think you need to fix your BKP listing to reflect this too  :shock:  

The problem with ordering them like this is that it would need to allow for the differnet magnets in each pickup too.  Tim just gives way too many options (not really Tim, I think it is great to have all this choice :mrgreen:  )

No big eyed cats or hamsters in sellotape here either  :haha:

Cheers
Phil

Just had a thought,

maybe you could have a sort of internet based program called something like.....

"Still Confused or Unsure about which Pickup is right for you?  Then try our web based pickup finder and see what we find would be right for you?"

Than have a series of movable sliders that people can move to what they want in a pickup.  This can then be looked at by BKP as to a more accurate idea of what the customer wants and give a slightly more educated guess.  it could even be automated so you dont have to worry about reply directly to it.

Also It could help in winding custom PU's for each particular customer?

just an expansion on the idea of having a fixed bar graph type thing for each product.

Anyway hope it helps

on the digitech website, they have flash demo's of their pedals, so you can hear the sample both effected and uneffected. this is maybe a bit complex, but it could provide a way to have online A/B comparisons of BKP's against stock pickups. It would be convincing, i reckon, to the average internet shopper. Lets face it, most people (or at least me) view the words from the manufacturer with quite a dose of cynicism. :wink:

also, does anyone else think that underlining the versatility of the pickups may actually undermine them a bit? some people may end up getting confused that the warpig can do jazz etc, or may be sceptical and think the pickups are a 'jack of all trades' rather than a specialised thing. after all, why have Owen Hargreaves when you can have Steven Gerrard? personally, i love the versatility of my VHII's, i was just wondering how it would look from a sales perspective.

Anyway, when do we all get our wages? :P

I would say the guitar they are going to be installed in (wood, pots or anything else that may affect the sound), what music is going to be played ?. In a way too much information can be confusing, keep it simple. The greatest Chef's as the greatest Taylor's do seize you up, ask maybe a couple of questions here and there and that's it. They go on to create.   :roll:

It would be a nice idea if you compare the different pickups(magnets,harmonic content etc.) so as to provide a more deep description on each pickup. Maybe showing treble,bass,mid response. Definately, stating what they would do on different type of woods. Also you could say which styles will the pickup better work on(although i know this could be confusing cause some do it all). And also maybe making a comparison to an artist that the pickup might sound like, or maybe a song or specific piece of music that can show it.

I've always wanted to see a standard frequency response graph used in relation to pickups. Like the speaker makers use.
I want see where the resonant peak is and what it looks like.

Would not be too expensive from the point of view of the maker?

The thing I don't like about the B M T bar graphs is a manufacturer could have half a dozen humbuckers with at or around, say, Bass 6 Mids 5.5 Treble 6 and they can sound very different.

Yes - I agree. I find that a mule can seem to have as much punch as a miracle man , but in a slightly different way.Any ratings system is fraught with comprimise and manufacturers juat have to take the best all round solution.

Luckily all the BKPs sound good  :D
