After a bit of advice and grateful for any input. I recently put a set of Black Winters in my ESP Horizon and love them, so much so that I was planning on replacing my trusty EMG 81s in my ESP M-II with them. The only problem is that a covered set of them shipped from the US to the UK with all the taxes and duties puts them at a higher cost than a set of Bare Knuckles, so I'm curious if there's anything in their lineup that would save me a few quid and hit the spot for me all in one go. The guitar I'm looking for pickups for is 25.5 inch scale length, maple neck-through, alder wings, ebony fretboard and Floyd Rose. Looking to tune it to Bb with a .064 gauge low string and play fairly aggressive death/black metal like Cannibal Corpse, Dying Fetus, Dark Fortress (really dig their tone on Venereal Dawn) and Aborted etc., so something tight and pissed off is what I'm looking for in a pickup. I like mids and character and if it's capable of doing more than just the angry stuff then that's fine too I know the Painkiller is often talked about in the same breath as the Black Winter, but the first line of the BKP site description squarely labelling it as 'djent' puts me right off (and before anyone says it, yes I know you can 'djent' on all manner of gear and it's about technique etc., but you can't deny certain bits of gear lend themselves to one style over another). It's just not the kind of tone I'm going for. The only BKP I'm really familiar with is the Blackhawk as I have a set in my Mayones Regius and honestly really don't like anything about them, so they're off the list! haha. Cheers!
