Prepare to the flow of Juggernauts to be sold by kids!!
I just bought a slanted pair of them from a handmade luthier made guitar. I must like it!
I'm fine with used Juggernauts being out there.
Wish it was the same with VHII and Divers.
I should hope not! The Juggs are an amazing set, and the Ragnarok is definitely not made to replace them, but to complement them!
Such as on a four-humbucker guitar.
I know it may be hard to believe, but I think there are a couple people on this forum who actually own more than one guitar!
don't worry if you made a periphery paf jim would be 50 sets
I love mine by the way. quite versatile. Have them in several guitars with different wood combo and setups (Strandberg, Jackson, Mayones) and they always sound good. this one was a home run!
Hope the new Ragnarok knows the same success!
@bulb really looking forward to the double tracked demos of both the juggs and the Ragnarok just to see how well they do compliment each other in a mix.
Is there any similarities between the Ragnarok, and Marks Alpha/omega?.
On the face of it, it seemed they were both excellent at nailing any particular sound. Jack of all trades type.
Could a mod edit my above post to include the suggestion that people don’t own more than one guitar? That exchange needs to make sense.
My asinine post begs the question of how the two pickup sets “complement each other.” As Lewis noted, I guess the angle is that double-tracking with guitars featuring each set will fill out the sound in a matched way? In that case, I too want to hear this demo’d.
Uhhh I took it to mean they compliment eachother as in, "juggs do this, rags do that". Now you have more choices!
Although your idea is intriguing id love to hear the two tones compliment eachother live on stage or something.
welp, it's begun, there's people already recommending the ragnaroks for literally every pickup thread in the ERGN facebook group. just like when any other new high profile pickup came out...
Having listened Misha's and Rabea's clips, I found the Ragnarok to be a bit saggy? They have guaranteed BKP definition but to me the attack was lacking slightly. I'm looking forward to see how they compare against both Warpigs, Black Hawk and Juggernaut.
Btw: Misha's demo song is so good, listened to it like 10 times on repeat.. The clean arpeggios are catchy!
Seems to me like these are very similarly spec'd to the Warpigs.
yeah I'm betting they're a slightly overwound version of the warpig since the lows/highs are a bit tamer.
I can highly recommend them as well...
... and might even order a set myself to check them out.
I'm 100% putting that on the tones and not the pickups.
Misha/Periphery in particular have switched over to less overly aggressive/tight/punchy tones in favor of more organic and balanced ones. This is apparent if you compare P1/P2/Jugg to P3.
It's kinda like with Northlane and their musical progression (Singularity > Node/Mesmer) along with the switch from Aftermaths/Blackhawks to Impulses. The change in guitar tones/mix is most likely due to the change in amps, pedals, and mixing, not the development of the BKP Impulses by Josh.
That's not to say a pickup can't be saggy, I'm just saying in this particular case it's probably more the tones rather than the pickups.
Misha, may I ask what do you think about the Ragnaroks being put in a mahogany guitar (bolt-on) with rosewood board? What is your opinion on these new pups in different wood choices?
how do these compare to the aftermaths?!?
I loved the tone on those mofos but found I could never get them to saturate enough unless I had all kinds of feedback my gates couldn't control. The juggernauts saturate well but have a totally different tonality. Misha if you reply I'll send you a free kitten. If you don't, I'll eat one free kitten.
