Hi Phil,

Do you mind if I bring my head and top cabinet?  I basically know how this amp sounds and can compare different pups to it.  thanks


No - bring any amp you want.  I was just making the point that a 200watt amp would be overkill because of the room size.
So many pickups, so little time

HAHAHAHAHAH

Back to the subject at hand.  Do you guys have an estimated time?  I work till about 1pm on Saturdays.  The Lincoln tunnel will probably be a mess as usual so I would need to take that into account.  
BTW - If someone needs a ride, let me know.  Its a small civic, but I have fit 6 people B4.  haha

Depending on my gear situation, which in turn depends on my gig situation, I will probably be scooting straight in from BK.

I live next door in Queens.  My buddy lives in NJ about an hour away from Hoboken so he is going to drive on his own.

I'm bringing my guitar, head and cabinet that I am hoping will fit in my trunk.   :roll:
So I will have the passenger and whole back seat to arrange people and equipment if needed.
Its a 2 door, so it helps I am good at Tetris...lol

Hi Shag101,

I wouldn't mind a ride if you're OK with coming to the Upper West Side. I'm right by Evan (NY Guitar Repair).  And, I'll fill your tank.

Do I need to bring my own amp?

Not an issue for the ride.

I think Phil has plenty of amps to play with.

Hi Phil, first let me say thanks for opening your home for fellow BKP enthusiast. If you have a time frame you are thinking about starting the soiree it would be good to know. I am scheduled to work until 5pm on the 21st; however, I will cut the day short to come and meet you all and have a good listen to the BK's .

I met up with Phil last night, and we discussed this event over a couple of pints.

I think the first thing we need to establish is: WHAT PICKUPS DO YOU WANT TO HEAR?

Please check in with the pups you want to listen to.

-

Anything that I don't already own, but a shortlist would be:

- Riff Raff, Black Dog, Emerald, Crawler
- Yardbird, Boss
- Apache, Mother's Milk, Irish Tour
  Any of the P90s


That's a wish list, but I'm mostly looking forward to meeting
you guys and just hangin' out.    :D

Between Phil and myself, we have every pup BK makes, with the exception of the Painkiller.

My guitars are more in the superstrat/metal guitar realm, Phil's are more classic.

Lets rephrase this just slightly:
Between Phil and myself, we have every Humbucking pup BK makes, with the exception of the Painkiller.

On the Strat we can do Apache, Irish Tour, Slowhand (middle and neck), Trilogy (middle and neck).  Don't have Sultans, Mothers or Sinner at the moment.

On the tele front we have Piledriver and Brown Sugar,  however my 62 tele pickups are like the Yardbirds.

P-90's we can do are Black Dog MQ, regular MQ, Pig-90, BKP-91, BKP-90
So many pickups, so little time
