I surprisingly thought they sounded pretty good.
Taste. I've bought 4 guitars used with NBs in em and literally ripped em out of the guitars, chucked em in a corner and sold every one of them for $30 on FB.
Dig the tones of these, but waiting for non mixed clips. Mixed clips sound sick as hell...
I share the same opinion, had an alnico NB put in the bridge of my skervesen, and I've never got on with it. It needs to go.
I am a big fan of the C-pig. I'm hoping these will offer up a less harsh clean/high end that comes with the warpigs, and still be a higher output ceramic. I will be quite interested. I really like the cleans and coil splits with the juggernauts, but want something that isn't as tight and precise for the heavy tones. These definitely have my attention.
C-Pig is my favorite so far. To be fair, I'm a down tuned sludge player, and the NBs are middy and sucky and I don't like them.
These have my attention too, as long as they'll work in a guitar that doesn't have Misha's name on it (no hate, I'm talking about specs, not branding).
That's my point, there's no harm in having more options because every guitarist enjoys something another might not.
New pickups don't need to fill a gap anywhere in the market so long as it's different from other offerings.
And nothing wrong with you guys not liking the Nailbombs, I love them personally. But you obviously play a different type of music than I do Stein.
Absolutely Jon. Here’s hoping these come out as a new different flavor that people can enjoy for different tunings/amp selections etc.
choices are good! but making fun of other people's choices = fun!
i like the nail bomb. It's not my favorite but I'll use it. Can't stand the cold sweat that was in my skervesen. Preference!
Dang, now you guys are making me actually want to buy other pups. I’ve got WPs, PKs and AMs, but I feel like I want to try the nailbombs and cold sweats now.
nah trust me, you need the black dog pickups in your life. So fucking mean sounding.
Really? I may just have to try that. I’ve heard about low output for 8 string metal, so I should give them a shot.
zimbloth recommended them to me and they are extremely savage for being lower output than the painkillers/warpigs, etc. Definitely doesn't hurt that they clean up well and have pretty damn good clarity. They have snarly/grindy mids that just sound killer through rectos or marshalls.
I haven't tried their low output ones...other then the rebel yell. I have pk's, juggs, ams, warpigs, and nail bombs. There's still not that many people doing pickups as high output as the warpigs. I have a motorcity the nuke that I love...but I don't know if they are still winding. Ormsby has a katana. I think the Elysian gets that hot.
For the mid output stuff I actually think there are bunch of american guys that do just as good if not better then BKP. Wolfetone, bgpickups, manlius. All pretty good. Hard to get used tho...so I usually just default to bkp when a cheap set pops up.
Think twice, NB are terrible, worst BKP by far. I haven't tried harder to like a pup, to no result, months wanting to like the ceramic one. CS on the other hand are great... btw, WP, PKs and Juggernauts are the best in their catalogue.
Preference, anyway, I know.
Might have to try these in something, I've got a bit of a thing for lower output pickups at the moment.
they sound great but didnt this demo just sound basically exactly like the Juggernaut demos? haha
I dont happen to like the samples the slightest, and this is making me feel SO old I want to cry
They elysian moderns that I have usually clock in at 15k for the 8 string version or slightly under for the 6 string versions. They feel hotter but they're not at warpig level. Avedissian's scythe is around 20k iirc (at least the 8 string version was). Besides, DCR doesn't directly equate to output.
ya but unless everyone starts listing h ratings and mv range at output it's all we got to work with.
I wish more companies besides dimarzio would show mv range. at least that gives you a decent idea of output.
I'd recommend EMG 707's
