    I can't guarantee anything. All I can tell you is I've been using JJs for over 10 years in over 50 different amps and I've never had a problem. I don't know where these stories come from but they are suspicious to me. I don't sell JJs or anything man, I just use them and trust them. They make any amp sound so much better and they've always been reliable for me.

    Well, if you can guarantee that the JJ's won't blow up [the stories of failed JJ tubes scare me, but I *believe* those are mostly for the pre tubes], that would be sweet. I really don't want to attempt taking out a broken tube. =S

    Then again, the SED/=C= KT88s do look pretty sweet and interesting. Anyways, I'll email you later today or tomorrow most likely.

    Thanks as always.

    Yo bimzloth, did you get my PM a few weeks ago? It was about the BKP I never got, and that I got pickups to try out instead.

    Hm, actually. Can you ship tested/matched tubes without much problems? Possibly thinking about =C= KT88s or some Sov's as backup to the ones in my amp, and a few pre tubes [Sovtek LPS for the PI for instance]. Then we wouldn't have to deal with a refund on a credit card.

    Anyways, thanks a lot! Loving the amp.

    Hey Zimbimbloth, I think it's BKP time for me... the PAF7's in my 7620 just aren't hitting the front of the Invader hard enough to say the least. They chime in the cleans pretty nicely, but I've lost that growl. I've EQ'd the snot out of the amp and I don't think compensating with gain is the answer.

    I've read the threads... apparently MM-7 set is great for these basswood/maple/rosewood. "Ben" from BKP recommended Nailbomb or MM set. But you're the damn expert right! I'm very curious about a Warpig bridge / MM neck... is that in the realm of sanity?

    Hey Nick, I'm-a-requiring help for some recommendations for BKP 7 string humbuckers for a RG1527 and I hear your the go-to-man for help! Rigged up with a Pod XT PRO through a tube power amp. The stock Ibanez pickups are too muddy, so I'm looking for clarity, tightness, more mids and bass. Ideal tone(s) would be something like Exivious / Cynic for rhythm and Opeth lead tone BWP era.

    Nick, do you know of any passive single coils that would be suitable for high gain applications? Haven't a clue what the body wood is but the neck and fretboard is maple.

    hello. i was told you are the man to talk to about BK pickups. what would you suggest for me? ive got an rg2228. dont like the emg's at all, not a big active guy so of coarse being on this forum BK's pop out. im looking for both a neck and bridge pickup im hunting for something EXTREMELY warm and full in the neck pickup. like a pet metheny, john pizzarelli, etc really warm jazz sound for the neck that can produce fairly fluid leads and for the bridge, not as a big a deal. something that can do djenty stuff ok but im not as worried about the bridge right now. if it helps probably my favorite neck pickup that ive heard is the old stock pickups on the peavey american wolfgangs. they had an amazingly full and gorgeous tone when you roll the tone back a little. thank you very much

    Hey Nick! As much as I'd love to say that I'm an active pup kinda guy, I'm getting more and more interested in BKPs. I messed around with pickup height, boost on/off, lowering my gain, and I just can't seem to get the clarity/articulation I want on bigger chords with my Blackouts. So my question is, which BKP bridge has the hottest output while still retaining clarity? My guitar is all mahogany body and neck, ebony board. Thanks Nick!
