I guess if BKP makes money from this type of pickup, fair enough. Though I think many of us were hoping for something a bit different.

new video and some more details. Seems to be Juggernaut`s brother but much higher output, less versatile (?) and mainly focused on overdriven tones.
At the end I suppose there`s a little sneak preview of the sound that can be achieved.
Just remember that Rabea and Rick Graham have sets and will be doing test videos as well, those players are indeed modern players but not djent players, so there`s still a hope that it`s not a total djent kind of thing.

Nooooo... It's another one for Misha. Based on that, I'm pretty sure it's gonna be ceramic... Can't wait!

Yes, Misha. After first news I was really hoping that it`s gonna be Rabea`s model, love his playing as well as that sound through those Victory amps, but still looking forward to it though.
One thing that puts me off a little bit is that very high output and decent cleans (as Tim said),  higher output than Warpig??? Hope he meant something around Miracle Man area.

I doubt it's gonna be higher output than wapig, I'd say about PK or maybe a touch hotter.

if they`ll keep it between PK and MM should be great.

I`m really curious about neck though....
I have funny feeling that it`s gonna be released tomorrow, if not... another teasing video tomorrow and release on Thursday.

Considering they are saying coming soon in those videos, I wouldn't be suprised if it comes out today. Not sure they'll put out anpther video since this one was 5 minutes long already.

Tim's part was particularly interesting.

I also like the carbon fibre finish.

Perhaps I will try a set after all.

I don't have plans to get another guitar and I seriously need it if I want to try the Ragnaroks which appeal to me a lot!

After seeing the vid with Tim, you can colour me intrigued.

The Miracle Man was probably the most "Fun" pickup I've used, so if the Ragnarok is going for gain+compression+clarity, i'm chucking a set in my 7.

(then i'll just need to get a strat or tele for my non metal moments)

I just hope it's not another scratchy pickup like the pk and aftermath
Something thick like the miracle Man but with more midrange and a little more top end compression would be cool

Misha doesn't like pickups that scratchy I think , they're gonna have smooth high end. Pretty sure mids are gonna be pushed.

totally agree...
anyway, what about neck model? Any ideas? Hotter Jugg neck or something towards Miracle Man neck?
