Hi and welcome!

I've just fitted my Cold Sweat into the bridge pos. of a new guitar (see below)



It's a new pup from Bare Knuckle, and will be included in the new, updated site slated to launch later this year, early next.

Spec-wise, it's a ceramic magnet pickup with a DC resistance of about 14.5k. It's inspired by John Sykes' tone.

From my perspective, it's a very, very clear sounding pickup, very neutral, but still has power. It's not as 'metally' as the Miracle Man (which sounds really saturated in my amp)  VHII, Nailbomb, etc etc.

It has a GREAT vintage vibe! Through my rig it nails the classic Judas Priest tone of yore.

It cleans up really well, and is harmonically rich - no problems with artificial harmonics at all through my setup.

Hi,
   The Cold Sweat is a new pickup which is going to be on the new site early next year. It is based on John Sykes huge tone, bright, powerful with a tight bottom end. Cold Sweat is a thin lizzy track.
