« Grinding Mids »

Publié le 07/30/11 à 06:18
Bare Knuckles pickups is a boutique pickup maker from the United Kingdom. They have been becoming very popular very fast due to their super heavy metal pickups. They have been making the most brutal pickups for modern music recently. This company has shown that passive pickups can still be brutal. People have been switching from EMG's to Bare Knuckle pickups because the passives are more brual plus have all the dynamics that you would expect from a passive pickup. The popularity of Djent music has meant that players are demanding pickups with way different attributes than what traditional pickup makers provide. Bare Knuckle pickups is able to make pickups for these players that fit their requirements perfectly. The Painkiller humbucker is labeled by Bare Knuckle pickups as the ultimate Djent pickup. In Djent music you need a super tight low end and a grinding midrange and that is what this pickup provides. You can tell by just looking at the finish that this pickup means business. The bridge output is 15.6k which is pretty average for a Bare Knuckle pickup. The eq'ing on this pickup is super aggressive. The high mids will cut your head off. This pickup grinds like no bodies business. The low end is dialed way back to help amplify the mids. The high end is pretty hot as well but it is not harsh in any way. Plus most djent music is played on 7 strings and with 7 string pickups you dont want the pickup having a ton of low end because the guitar will naturally have more than a normal guitar. These pickups are not just for riffing either they stay clear and open for complex chords as well. If you are looking for the tightest most grinding djent pickup on the market the Painkiller is a popular choice.
