Hi BKP friends! Hope everyone`s doing wonderfully well!

I would like to present my newest song 'Time' featuring my favorite Miracle Man Set. As Miracle Man is mostly associated with heavy music, I would like to show that it`s quite versatile and can do some bluesy hard rock as well. Both neck and bridge models playing lead parts. Thanks for watching.

Gear used: Custom Warmoth Telecaster with BKP Miracle Man (set),  Orange TH30 with Wampler Plexidrive and TC Electronic Flashback through Two Notes Torpedo Live (Ownhammer Orange 2x12 and Heavy Hitters II IRs), Akai MPC Touch, Panasonic FZ2000

Nice one @Stratguy23. Some BKP's seem to be leading a life in the shadow. I didn't see much topics about the Emerald last few years. Also Sultans and tele-pickups like the County Boy, Brown Sugar, Yardbird and the Boss look to be forgotten gems on this forum. Maybe it's bec the forum has become quite silent. Probably buyers get their info on Youtube, other sociale media or directly at BKP.

Thanks for your input so far.

Ben from bareknuckle recommend the Nailbomb set with the ceramic magnet option for the bridge. Any thoughts on that recommendation?

Thanks in advance

I've got a couple of Nail Bomb sets but both are the A5 variety. The Nail Bomb neck is one of my favourite pickups; it's got a very distinct, woody voice that can do both aggressive and delicate with equal ease. The bridge, again, has a very distinct voice that sits inside any mix really well, making this the ideal rhythm pickup. With the A Bombs in 2 guitars (one tuned to E standard and the other tuned down to D standard) and a Mule set in a 3rd guitar, I've got most things covered. The only thing I will say though, is although I really like my Nail Bombs, they are about as far from Slash's signature sound as you can get but personally I think that's a good thing ;)

Iím a little responding here, but I want to echo the Emerald praise. I put a set in a dark Greco Les Paul copy, and they really livened up the guitar. When they are in a darker instrument, the Emeralds still have plenty of bottom end, but it is really tight, so you can play metal with them. They are voiced for crunchy classic rockon the bridge and fat singing tone on the neck, but they are really versatile due to their tight bottom end and overwound PAF character. They have enough output to drive an amp, but they are not too hot, so they still sound good clean and for lower gain stuff. I did the Jimmy Page wiring, and the splits are really great sounding as well.

Warpigs are also good in SGs.  SGs aren't really a 'big hunk of mahogany' ... they are very thin and  this combined with the neck joint make them different from everything else

Miracle Man, Cold Sweat, or maybe even a VHII (I haven't tried this last combo).

I've been using a ceramic warpig in a 73 les paul custom exactly for that sort of stuff and I'm surprisingly happy, although I've been playing mostly a riff raff or holy diver for years
A miracle man should work fine, though

Hi, nice introduction.  :grin:
You're looking at very hot pickups, so they won't sound as vintage like say Mother's Milk.
I would just pick a Sinner set. They're composed after a lot of R&D. Sinners are fat and good for highgain applications, but still have the strat vibe going.

Thank you very Telerocker.

I am not so much looking for a high gain set, but i do love my warm and fat sounding single coils.

Ok, give me some examples/favourite stratssounds (artists).

If you want a fat - think p90-ish - singlecoil with enhanded mids and reduced topend and still vintage(hot) character have a look at Slowhands.

The Irish Tours are overwound Mother's Milk with a bit more bass, mids and less topend. Also a bit less woody than the Mother's Milks, which for me are instant John Frusciante.

Apaches are copies of a fifties F-style pickup, quite fat compared to Mother's Milk but with a softer voice.
