Or, now get this one for innovativeness...

..why don't people who want to buy the BKP's, ask current users and owners of BKP's what the pickups sound like through the forum.

On that note, anyone got clips of the Trilogy Suites?

Andy!


That was the general idea behind the forum-get you all self educating, finding out who's got what etc

I think both HJM and Hayden have posted Trilogy clips in the players room-UBERcoils are Trilogy Suite coils.


Hmmmm I'll have a dig about...

I hope to contribute a lot to this forum, that's if I can actually raise some cash to buy my first set of BKP's.

Andy!
GREAT GOOGILY MOOGILY!

Well, yes :)  And on a similar note, anyone got a Warpig in a Les Paul or other mahogany-bodied guitar?  Tim has kindly provided demos of the Miracle Man in an LP, though the Warpig demos from Ratrod and Leafy-dono were in an Ibanez and Yamaha SG respectively if I remember aright. You haven't got yet another LP with a Warpig in it somewhere, have you Tim? ;) Then again, the both bridge and neck solos in the Miracle Man demo were cut with the SD1 on, while the neck solo on the Mule demo was cut minus SD1 so I'm not always sure which sublties of sound to distinguish between pickups I should be listening for ....

Good point, but in defence the Mule is a differnt beast to the Miracle Man, and the neck pickups is so clear and open it's a shame to cover it in gain!

I was hoping for a good clip of Feline's Gothic SG with Warpigs.

Actually, I was wondering what the Miracle Man neck sounded like without being covered in gain :)  (appropriate though it may be to cover the MM in gain!)

The Mule neck does indeed sound lovely (which is why I wondered about a MM or WP bridge/Mule neck pairing, despite the difference in output, in order to aim for a Zakkoid-Iommi-esque "Saturn V engine just fell on you" bridge sound but a smoother creamier more Santanaish neck sound.  PhilKing's Alnico V Miracle Man is an interesting neck idea (with an output that would presumably be a bit closer to the Warpig) .... A higher gain Santanaish sound?  Maybe that's a Roy Z sound :).  He plays a 70s gold top LP, as I recall :)

My MM clip, apparently, isn't that gainy!! I thought I had a perfectly serviceable metal tone, until Tim said it was a great 'medium overdrive' sound. D'OH!!!!  PDT_032

Check it out, that may answer your question.

BTW, who's the unlucky person that has to sort through this thread for the useful bits??  :?:

I've begun to wonder if some clips of pickups doing unexpected things wouldn't be at least almost as useful to potential buyers as clips of the pickups in their "home territory". For example, I have no doubt that the Warpig can dish out serious "Sabbath on steroids" crunch, but though the Total Guitar review tells me it also sounds really sweet when clean, it would be interesting to actually hear it clean :).  Conversely, the Apaches surely ring and twang like anything; what happens when they go through ridiculous gain?

Those may sound like unrealistic, useless examples at first, but I started wondering about this sort of thing when Tim was talking about playing Ozzmosis shows with the Mules and the Zeppoid bluesy clip that Leafy-dono recorded.  And I do wonder how the Warpig cleans up! :)

I like that idea Carlaz. Maybe I'll record a little clean ballad with my Warpig.

If anyone could do the same sort of thing with a nailbomb that would be cool!

Be nice to hear it doing cleans, crunchy kinda classic and metal...

No worries if not though, probably more fun finding out myself!  :twisted:
