Warpig. No questions asked. Black Sab was the first (and best ) metal band, the pig sounds like sab therefor it is best. :]

Strangely enough I can actually get a better Sabbath sound from my Black Dog than I can from my Warpig.

As for my type of Metal, well that would be the 80s stuff, so my vote would go to the Holy Diver.

Could that be because the BD is closer to what Iommi actually used?

As has been stated on this forum before, the name "Warpig" is more a statement of attitude than an attempt by Tim to capture the original Sabbath sound.  I doubt whether a creation as monstrous as the WP had even been thought of in the early '70s :twisted:

I think you're right Antag, I don't think even his current signature pickups are all that high in output, let alone his old ones. I'm sure he used P90s sometimes in the early days as well.

He almost used single coils, but his Strat broke just when they started recording the first album so he used the SG. Just think, if that Strat hadn't broken we'd be here right now trying to decide what was the best Metal pickup, the Apache or the Mothers Milk  :lol:
