The Bare Knuckle Pickups Sinner is part of the contemporary line of single coil pickups that BKP offers. It’s an extremely high output single coil that will absolutely crush most normal humbuckers out there. Like all BKPs, this comes with tons of options to choose from. Most people run these in the bridge, but mine was actually a neck model with the vintage stagger, Alnico V magnet and normal base plate.

The Sinner is one crazy single coil pickup. Tim doesn’t offer any single coil sized humbuckers due to him saying they compromise tone. While I disagree with that, his take on what a heavy metal single coil should be is pretty insane. This thing has gobs and gobs of power. In fact, it doesn’t really sound like a normal single coil. The lows on this thing are absolutely brutal and crushing. The midrange is pushed back a bit to allow for the lows and high end to help make the pickup sound big. The treble is fairly even sounding with maybe being pushed back just a touch.

When I ran this in the neck of my guitar, it delivered a wonderful singing lead tone. If you’re one for smooth lead tones, this is the pickup you want to get. Despite being a crazy hot overwound pickup, it was still very clear and open sounding. When you rolled back the volume and turned on the clean channel, it delivered a pretty nice clean, too. One thing I will say is that, because this is a normal single coil, it will hum. You’re going to have to live with that as Tim doesn’t offer single coil sized humbuckers. He will, however, rewind one if you give it to him.

If you’re looking for the most brutal single coil on the market, this is the pickup you want to get. It’s crazy powerful, and it can pretty much crush any normal humbucker on the market. To top it off, it still remains clear sounding under high gain.
