Has anyone tried the 8 string version of the bkp painkillers, and what are your thoughts about them.
Use the search, this has definitely been discussed in the pickups sub-forum.
Painkillers are all about attack and upper mids, they're pretty hot. Great fr making warmer amps a little tighter and more saturated, if you have something tight and dry anyway like a VHT/Fryette or Mark series Mesa or something they aren't necessary in that sense but its all taste at the end of the day.
Usually I'd rather have too much power than not enough because its easier to cut than boost, but that aside these are an upper mid heavy, pretty bright pickup on the whole. What you get out of it really depends on your entire setup.
Check out the search function for more info and welcome.
Painkillers can get a bit icepicky.
Was it not Kitten who had a video of some in a intrepid ages ago?
I may be wrong.
