    Hell Yeah, Finally the Carbon Fiber look.
    Nice etching, that's cool.

    I would love Bareknuckle if they offered Active variants that worked with solderless systems.

    Alas they do not so

    I really hope they're going to be a low/mid-output Alnico pickup and not another high output ceramic unit!

    Misha made a comment a while back on one of his peavey invective live streams about something new he was doing with BKP, I assume these are what he was hinting at.

    Read on another forum it's Rabea's model.

    Could be, but the Ragnarok name and Misha dropping hints about them leads me to believe they aren't Rabea's. I thought Rabea liked warpigs, but they didn't want to put them in his chapman sig due to the cost. They essentially copied them, to an extent, for his sig guitar?

    All speculation at this point though.

    Nowhere in that post does it say that they are his pickups. Could be, but I don't see Rabea's post confirming that in any way

    I wasn't talking to you nor trying to confirm or reject those hypothesis

    Misha what’s the word on these?!? Juggernauts are by far my favorite pickup set so I can’t wait to hear how these compare.

    ok fine, but I remember when he would run his guitar through a Keeley Compressor, with 2 noise gates to intentionally remove the dynamics and have the guitar tone compressed before it hit the amp.
    His tone back then was just as great as now and toured the world/recorded like this.

    so how is that different from the compression that an Active pickup gives you?

    Just joking with quote from one of his old videos ;), but it matters how you use the compressor and where you place it. Periphery had really processed guitar tones in their first record tho.

    the carbon fiber look is cool but I can achieve the same effect with some vinyl stickers/spraying some 2k over it.

    The look is what I'm interested the least, anyway
