So, uhhh.... Anybody tried these yet?
I second this. It's been at least a couple of weeks since the release and surely somebody has to have gotten a set by now?
I'm trying to decide between this and an impulse for the bridge of my mahogany body and roasted maple neck/fretboard guitar. Anyone have some suggestions?
They are two very different pickups. Impulse is moderate to high output and has a very clear bottom end and flat midrange. Optimal for longer scale lengths and won't colour any part of the mids in your guitar's natural timbre.
Can't speak for the ragnaroks yet but we are about to receive a bunch in my store so I'll be able to comment soon.
Maybe everyone in the web is trying to make anyone buying them to have a proper review but it's not working
Would you say they're only for extended range guitars or would normal scaled guitars still sound good with these?
Sounds like the warpig, so +1.
I think the Warpig comparisons come from those being high output, but honestly the Warpigs are very different pickups, they are sludgy and very rolled off by comparison to the Ragnaroks. Less traditionally agressive, the Ragnaroks are tight by comparison and fare better on cleans/midgain, and even though they have a low mid focus, they are not sludgy in its delivery.
Honestly they are such different pickups that I would warn people against comparing them just because of their DC resistance values.
On a useful side note, DC Resistance is only relevant when measuring pickups which use the same gauge wire which I'm 99% sure is not the case with the Ragnarok, because we actually did something rather unconventional with the Ragnarok, so take those values with a grain of salt.
Bro that tone is nasty....what kemper profile are you using?
Would they be the closest things in the existing lineup to the Rags? There is something that I like that I guess I find reminiscent of old warpig and miracle man demos, that isn't so much there in a lot of other BKPs. I never thought it'd be something as simple as output, but looking at the stats, I guess you might be right.
Sorry, should have said its not my video, I just happened across it.
Nasty is right, this is the worst they've sounded from all the demo clips I've heard.
Really? Lol. I kinda dig it.
Different strokes I guess...
It has started, boiz:
So not his thing that he took them out immediately.
It always feels odd reading bullshit of that audacity outside the ss.org classifieds. I feel like I’m missing out on a NPD thread from the previous week that begins with
“Just had my tech install these - Pretty much the best pickups I’ve ever used IMO, and I’d buy them again in a heartbeat if they ever fell out of the guitar. NO I didn’t buy them l because of Misha LOL. If I had to describe them, I’d say they’re tight and aggressive, while also being well-defined and aggressive and tight. They have a quality that’s kind of hard to describe. Kind of an aggressive sound that’s well-defined and tight. But yeah they aren’t going anywhere LOL.”
And the second post is a guy asking if they think the pickups would sound good in a purple heart body tuned to drop-Ab. And the third post is the OP replying with “I think theyd sound pretty much awesome lol they sound pretty much awesome in my double drop-G Mahogany Vader but I haven’t plugged it in yet.”
All the mixed messages and uncertainty of compatibility with all the BKP choices and the hefty investment risk has basically caused me to learn to love the Nazgul/sentient set I’ve currently got and not replace them. Kinda like learning to love the overweight homely looking girl with the nice personality lol.
She ain’t much to look at but she can cook and she tries hard in the sack. Lol.
That made my weekend
