Bare Knuckle Warpig Humbucker is a great choice for Metal. This is one Helluva HUGE LOUD pickup! Available in Both Alnico V and Ceramic Magnet configurations. Brutality with clarity! An extremely high output humbucker with a raw, guttural tone and smooth hi-end available in 2 formats to fine tune the response.
The Warpig humbucker was originally conceived as an all-out extreme metal humbucker capable of seriously dark and saturated tones. However it soon found uses as diverse as jazz and fusion establishing itself as a major player in the Bare Knuckle range.
The twin screw coil design produces an even and controlled treble response, working well with intense levels of gain. Bass and mid range response is monstrous and the different magnet options allow for the tone to be further refined to taste.
The default Alnico V magnet creates the smoothest hi-end with a totally organic mid range grind and deep bottom-end. For players looking for even more output, the ceramic magnet option delivers faster bass reaction, smoother mids and a sharper cut in the highs.
Hard Rock, Shred, Metalcore, Progressive Rock, Doom, Thrash, Death Metal, Stoner, and Extreme Metal styles
Particularly well suited to double cut solid-body/bolt-on neck guitars or lighter weight instruments that require a fuller, more aggressive tone.
