Might very well be the first BKP's I remotely give a shit about. Sound aggressive as hell.
There's always an extreme hype around the products Misha get involved with, so I'll wait for some honest reviews but they definitely look (and sound) promising.
Misha's products are always top notch for me, I just don't understand the hate about the Juggernauts, I just ordered a slanted pair of those, which won't be easily replaced.
Judging by the sound and specs, I think I will prefer the Juggernaut over the Ragnarok. I just dig that low chunky rhythm tone and I need good cleans also.
That carbon fibre cover looks amazing. I love BKP's pink urban camo covers too. I would love to compare this to Duncan Alpha/Omega.
It's not a hate of the product per se, it's a hate for the hype of the product.
On paper they address some of the problems I have with BKPs but the sound clips have some of the traits of actives that I don't like.
Waiting for all the EMG, SD, and Fishman haters to buy these and start raving about active pickups...
As that thing is “unlike any other pickup before“, I'd assume it's fixing ehrm... like... everything done in pickups before!
Do pickups need to fill gaps at all? It's all preference and very few brands innovate. We technically didn't need a black winter, or a nazgul, or a juggernaut or anything. It's just another flavor to add to the mix, I've tried every contemporary pickup they offer and my favorite is the Nailbomb. So to see another hot ceramic pickup added to the lineup is exciting because that's the kind of pickup I love playing. If it really is the opposite of a Juggernaut I'll be sure to dig it, the juggernauts sounded fine but I hated the response I got when playing them feel wise. They always have a chewy character to them when I dig in.
Just my 2 cents, but funnily the cleans sounded the best. The pickup is supposed to be tight but the hi-gain sound was all over the place in my opinion in that video.
the clips sounded way too juggernaut esque for my tastes, but that could be because it was misha playing. It'll be interesting to see them get into other players hands and see how they sound then.
Oh lawd, laughed hard! And long like a Sustainiac.
I really like the Juggs, but they're perhaps a bit too sterile - I wonder if this could be the ideal pickup for me? I really like the Dimarzio D-Sonic, too, and am considering getting the Miracle Man set for my upcoming build, but now this popped up...
wow sig pickups are expensive. I didn't realize that the juggernauts were 40 more then the other pickups. The ragnaroks are the same. That's a spicy meatball.
Might pickup a set to replace the lithiums in my scb6. I saw Misha last night at the clinic at Samash, it was pretty dope.
Where is the Juggernaut Ragnarok audio comparison already?
So we now have the Ragnarok, does this mean the next set will be Ultima?
NICE!! I love all the BKP stuff...I do have a question for you guys. Would you recommend this set for my Schecter JFL7 it's the discontinued 2008 SOLID Ash with a maple neck body NOT the swamp ash body . It has a set of active 707. Recommendations? I want them for death metal kind of a deeds of flesh tone.
You do realize nobody here likely has these pickups as they seem to have just been released within the last day or so. I doubt anybody here besides Misha maybe have enough real world experience with them to recommend anything.
