The Nailbomb i just heard for first time ever the soloing tone is f****g awesum but i now heard the cool warpig i was gagging for the solo lol doood you played that perfect!! it was so god damn tight the structure played musicaly was on par perfect, tho i dont kno which to buy the warpig or the nailbomb. The Nailbomb tone has impressed me its got prety chaotic crunch, soaring sustains and pinch harmonics  :D  i need to see if the warpig is not just some nu-metal pickup i wanna see if you can solos with it. One guy on a site sed "i been playing for 15 years and never done solos, the warpig inspired me to do a full on solo and thh shredding sounds f****g awesum" sum 1 plz do a clip asap im already excited about bareknuckles range now i forgot about EMG. Im in a metal band i been playing for more than a year now and yes i can solo i been learning from zak wyldes video lessons so i learnt to shred by practicing for hrs on end. Im becomming a much better guitarist from learning from the best and me and my lead guitarist both solo so we require bloody high output shredding metal monster pickups.

Hi meatalshredder, welcome to the forum!

The warpig is the highest output humbucker we do; it has a DC of 22K and is comparable to an EMG 81 output wise. Its not just a new metal pickup; you can play anything from early Sabbath to Strapping young lad with it! The Nailbomb is more versatile, it has a more organic open tone. Another pickup that may interest you is the Miracle man, which nails Zakks tone! Check Tims cover of gets me through and the BKP miracle man clip!

Thanks for the compliments Metalshredder85. The Warpig is one hell of a pickup, especially if you're a rhythm player. Most of my clips are in drop C so it sounds heavy as sh!t. In stock tuning it has a bit of that classic Sabbath and Metallica vibe. Check out the clip by Killerwhale, he's done some amazing shredding with the Warpig.

I'm definitely no nu-metal dude (I'm 100% with Mr. Wylde's infamous comentary on this one :)), I'm more a classic heavy rock kinda guy, but I'm highly tempted by the Warpig for the bridge, since all the rhythm, lead, and clean samples of it in various styles that people have posted sound ace.  I suck :) and have really sloppy technique ("unforgiving" pickups are not for me!) but I can slam out rhythm pretty decently (at home I tune usually down to D across the fretboard), so a pickup that plays to my strengths (such as they are) and won't overly highlight my weaknesses is very attractive, and the Warpig is all that.  I especially like the way the 'pig cleans up, better than the MM I gather, and I dig the Alnico sound more than the ceramic sound (though were I a shredder, I've heard nothing that beats the Miracle Man!).

I've thought of pairing it in the neck with either an A5 MM (apparently the official Warpig neck anyway) or with an A4 Mule, but am hanging out to see what the Abraxas pups sound like (since I'm a huge sucker for Santanaish neck tones).  Otherwise, the main competition for a bridge Warpig would be a Mule, since those clips also sound fabulous -- awesome "vintage plus a little" vibe. If I were a better player, I think I'd go for the Mule straight off since I think good technique would be shown off by the Mule to excellent advantage.

(I can't help but think the Black Dogs and Emeralds are being overshadowed by the attention given to the Mules, since what few clips I've heard of them sound pretty excellent, too -- perhaps when the more detailed product descriptions appear it will be easier to distinguish what's going on with the various models.  There are so many shades of grey hiding between the twin poles of "vintage" and "modern high gain"!)

But I'm still saving my pennies, and hoping the Abraxas rolls out within the next few months to give me more to think about.  (These decisions would be easier if I just had more guitars, but then my wife would kill me and I wouldn't get to play them anyway ;)).

I like the Warpig for some heavy classic rock. It's a lot of fun playing Sabbath and Motorhead with it, or any NWOBHM. It even sounds good doing AC/DC. There's too much saturation in it to be spot on (you'll need a Riff Raff for that) but it handles open chords like now other high output pickup.

Heh, I had always wondered what the Riff Raff was named for, and not until I read that did my slow, slooow brain put 2 and 2 together to make AC/DC!  I guess the Riff Raff belongs in my list of "pickups that don't seem to get as much attention" alongside the Emerald and Black Dog -- I've seen a few clips pass by, I'm sure, but not many!

Well, I'm not on a quest to nail somebody else's tone, anyway; I'm on a quest to make my guitar sound cooler to me than it already does :)  And it sounds pretty cool, but not as cool as it will do :)

So I'm guessing I'll have to get my @ss back in the studio for more clips. I'll snoop through my (limited) collection of backing tracks.

Isn't there anyone who's got an SG with Riff Raffs and an old Marshall who can post some AC/DC clips?

Your setup sounds great for metal! The Warpigs sound evil  :twisted: I forgot, did you say the Tubefactor is good for lower gain stuff aswell? Like, the styles of things I play vary from low gain, gritty Led Zep/AC DC to med. gain GnR, VR etc upto Pantera, Megadeth etc. The Marshall Guvnor 2 just aint doing anything for me anymore   :(

Check out my Crawler clips. 'What You Are' Is done on factor 1 wich is low gain. Sounds a bit like a Marshall JTM-45. It mostly depends on what guitar I plug in. With the Mockingbird it's modern metal, the SG is hard hitting rock and with the Reverend it's Malcolm Young AC/DC.

ohh right so you'd recommend it then? The Audioslave one sounds kinda muddy thats probably just the recording quality though I guess. I'll be playing it with my soon to be totally "Mule-d out" LP  :P so Id guess itl sound slightly more "vintagey" than your Crawlers?

It's a good pedal. It might not be to everyone's taste and it might not be ideal for every amp. I haven't found a pedal that can beat it yet. It makes my amp sound like a Marshall or even a Mesa. It keeps the guitar's natural tone intact. I tried plenty of Boss and Ibanez pedals wich will sound epic over a big Marshall stack but just don't seem to work with my Fender. The Tube Factor sounds huge on the Fender. The muddyness is a recording fault, I should have miced the amp's speaker as well.

oh right so it actually has pretty tight bass, good for tight chuggy metal stuff and do squeals come out easy? I cant find any for cheap, they are about 199 ish here I think which sucks

I have it on a scooped mid setting for big bass. Tightness and squeels are mostly the pickup. Try to find a used one.
