RAZORPIG! (pics and review!)

yep, i finally have a Warpig and it is finally in my Razorback!

it is Ceramic and measures 21.6K, which is a HUGE amount of power!

so, as i don't have a cab for my main amp yet, i plugged it into my Behringer Modeling combo to test. i didn't expect it to sound good.
i was wrong.
it sounded alright until i realised one of the main modeling switches was switched to a bad srtting, then i flicked it up, hit that powerchord, and ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE! what followed was a huge riffing practice session, and i plyed all the heaviest riffs i could think of!
the guitar has thick strings and is tuned to C standard, which is brutal when paired with the Warpig!
now, about the sound:
- the mids are surgical, just as everyone said, not too scooped (or maybe scooped in a brutal way? i dunno  :lol: )
- The bass... holy shite!!!! it was on 5 and it was huge and TIIIIIGHT!
- It's bright, but not ice-picky or overdone on the highs!
- It's perfect for the heaviest riffs!
- The power is amazing, i was playing that chuggy riff in the middle of Sikth - Bland Street Bloom, and it was crushing!!!!! every time i hit that C5  :twisted: powerchord, it chugs like hell!!! in the words of Phil Anselmo: SUUCH POWWWEEEEER!
- I can't wait to hear it through my Marshall 8100 Valvestate!!!!

so, i would like to thank Tim for making such $%&#ing awesome pickups, Crazy_joe for providing me with this beast and cooperating while i was having trouble buying, and EVERY forumite who led me to this pickup in recommendation threads and clips  :twisted:  :twisted:  :twisted:

So, with all that off my chest, here's some pics!







and finally, the guitar plus the BKPick  :twisted:


enjoy, and thankyou again to ALL!

a very evilly happy BM.

EDIT: i forgot to add, just imagine this: when you hit a chord with full distortion on, you feel a powerful punch. that is exactly what the Ceramic Warpig sounds like. it was the sound that i had in my head, and BKP have supplied it for me. for that, I will never buy any other pickups ever again.

cheers dude!

BKPs are full of tone, even ones at this high output... the tone's all there!

NP, sounds awesome, but the dimebucker was ceramic too, but the sound wasn't very impressive. the whole thing was made of plastic too!
