Best choice to make a VERY TRASH METAL Gibson les Paul
« on: June 04, 2010, 08:40:57 AM »
Hi, my brother bought a Raw Power Gibson Les Paul... And he want a very "bad and angressive" sound to play harsh metal music...

What is the most agressive PU in BK pickups ? Thanks.
Sorry for my english, I'm french !

LesPaul probably goes very well with a Miracle Man. On other axes probably Painkiller.
Current BKPs: Miracle Man, Nailbomb, Juggernaut, VHII
Past BKPS: Holy Diver, Trilogy Suite, Sinner, Black Dog

The miracle man has more grind to it.

Rock hard, punishing tone ala; Nuclear assault, exodus, testament = Painkiller
über bright, liquid, grinding tone ala; Death metal = Miracle man

This confuses me - I suspect people recommend pickups they havent played all the time, but its rare that I see it and KNOW that you havent played one ;)

besides, its not available. I was offered the chance for it, and since then 2 poeple have got one, that I know of, one got lucky and another was offered it as well because it fit a sound he wanted very well.

Its not generally available: people have been refused it already.

Anyway: painkiller is the obvious choice :8

I missed that 'raw power' bit!

yes, all maple (a little reseach reveals).

Then I dont think the PK is wise. I'd be inclined to go for a ceramic nailbomb.

In a standard LP i would say MM all the way

i think the painkiller would be overly bright in a maple one

the MM could also end up a bit spikey

i found my nailbomb to be darker so i would say that

unsure how the ceramic would work though as i have no experience whatsoever with it

the old standard raw power had regular woods
just unfinished

the new maple ones look awful
but the miracle man is said to work pretty well on maple

I thought the raw power has always been maple. When was there a raw power series previously?
