So fancied a change from the Aftermath in my Schecter. I like it but i dont think it is 100% me; i also reckon it works wonders for lower tunings or possibly guitars that are darker. In this guitar it always felt a bit thin and sharp.
Anyhow, while on Ebay i saw that there was a Warpig (alnico) going for sale. I have always liked the idea of the Warpig but have always been put off by some reviews saying it has too much bass, doesnt cut,etc,etc. Anyhow, I hijacked the sale and got it at a fantastic price.
It took no time to arrive and I had it installed the following day. First time I plugged in....BOOM, muscular, thick, chunky, juicy, mean and just so much more the kind of thing I like, I was BLOWN AWAY. It has higher output than any other BKP i have owned but still retains that trademark clarity, needless to say I LOVE IT. I know its the honeymoon period, and i havent tried it through my proper rig or in a band context. So I will update as I try it out in these scenarios, but as it is, its so much fun to play and it packs such a punch that I have been grinning non stop just thinking about it lol
Yep, they slay. I tossed an A-Pig in my RG570.
I actually think of them as a much more useful, passive version of an EMG (85?) or perhaps a Blackout.
They have the compression and punch, ridiculously big and tight low end, and a big wide midrange. Somehow they clean up really well and remain somewhat touch-sensitive.
Rolling off the tone knob makes a pretty believable jazz tone, too.
