i'm not really into heavy sounding stuff but hearing that heavy clip really makes me wanna play some seriously heavy sh*t!!!

those clips are fantastic. i have been thinking about the painkiller and what that would be like but now i HAVE to have a set of rebel yells as soon as i get the money. the frustration set in as soon as i listened to the clip, i want them now!!!

The Rebel Yell humbuckers will be officially released at the London Guitar Show, May 5-7 2006 hence why they're not up on the main site yet.

Ok, I listened to these a while ago, but only got round to posting now:

distortion was absolutely fantastic. the tone I go for, basically. Now i just need to get past my irrational dislike of signature gear, lol.

Clean seemed really good too, but I'd have preferred one without chorus, so you could hear it better.

Did anyone see download on channel 4 last night around 1 am? megadeth, anthrax, velvet revolver, HIM, and billy idol were all on it. The rest sucked (unless I've forgotten someone who rocked, lol).

Anyway, SS was playing a musicman axis (i think), is that BKP'ed? His tone was pretty sweet at the start of rebel yell, from what I remember, but then it got a load of chorus and other 80's stuff over it, so you couldn't really hear the tone any more...

And any chance of getting SS to tell Billy Idol not to take his shirt off, like, ever? I think I need couselling after that performance... :(

First I have to say it's cool for a "celebrity" to post in such a forum. This might bring you new fans, because all the dudes here share your opinion: BKPs ROCK!!!

True enough: I just recently ordered the Flamenco a-Go-Go CD because, well, Steve plays BKPS (and so clearly is a man of taste) and, OK, the CD has only acoustic guitar, but I kinda dug the concept (being something of a fan of weird flamencoid things :)).  Album hasn't arrived yet, but should do soon, hopefully!

That said, I just heard the RY clips, and man, they are monsters! :twisted:   I look forward to Steves next electric recordings featuring raging BKP action .... :)

Hi Guys,
I'm glad i can demonstrate the Rebel Yell model pickup. There was nothing fancy used for the clip. Drums are a simple loop from Brutal Beats. The mic pre was Avalon, no heavy eq etc. Amp-18 watt Roccaforte combo http://www.roccaforteamps.com/index.htm. I am really proud to be a Bare Knuckle player. Tim has been great to deal with, even when i ordered my first set of Mules online (under the radar) just like any other punter. I know that Tim values each and every geetar player.
Thanks,
Steve Stevens


Hey Steve I'm a huge fan!  Your work with Bozzio Levin Stevens is at the top of my all time list for great all around musicianship and I absolutely love the guitar work.  Thanks for the clips!!! They sound great like all of your work always does!

I am now seriously considering ordering a set.  Your tone was always what I wanted out of my Les Paul.  Got a '69 Major too - I bet these will kick serious butt with that!

Right now I have Gibson Burstbuckers... sound great clean, good Gary Moore tone etc. but when I turn up the gain, they feedback uncontrollably and these seem more versitile to begin with.

I'm generally a PAF-turf sorta player... normally, anyway. I usually don't like anything over, say about 9k for a bridge pickup for example (and I'm a rock player). But these have my attention.


I'm in the same boat when it comes to Les Pauls.  It's so hard to find pickups that aren't muddy etc. but I am def. getting a pair of these.  I'll be sure to let you know what I think when i get them, and how they compare to BurstbuckerTs (the Gibson PAF replicas).

Damn those were nice. Is anyone else starting to find that they want to buy more guitars just to put more BKs in them?

I wish I had that kind of money, lol (but then again, I don't understand the words "buy junk" either)

From what I've heard, even the hotter BKPs have pretty good definition.  I used to have the Gibson 498/490 pups (reasonably hottish) in my LP, and replaced with with the BKP Crawlers, which are about the same DC resistance but have much better defiinition.  The RYs are reasonably hot too, I think, but based on the clips seem very well defined!

They apparently did the smart thing and used a not-so-large/strong magnet like many.  Seymour Duncan has a tendency to use magnets that are either too strong or large for what they should be and thus it sounds like an hoarde of people who ate way too many beans are all in the room with you... which is not a good thing!

Very cool sounding pickups! 8)
I'm torn between these and the Mules now.  Are both pickups being used on the clean clip (like the heavy clip)?
BKPS: Cryogenic Apache set, Mule set, Riff Raff, Stormy Monday.

The clean clip is pure bridge whereas the dirty clip uses both bridge and neck.
