I've been doing a lot of soldering

Well the other day my Caparison got some new pickups. A BKP Painkiller and a Dimarzio Tone Zone S. It sounds awesome. It is tuned to B standard and the Painkiller is brutal sounding while the TZ-S is as fat as a weight watchers meeting

Then last night I added some Bill and Becky Keystones to my Tele along with a 4 way switch. They sound awesome. From sparkling cleans to raunchy dirty tones they can do it all. With the 4 way switch they even come close to a humbucker or hot P-90 tone.

Then today I added a BKP Miracle Man set to my Agile AL-2500. It sounds downright nasty, in a good way of course. Pinch harmonics just fly off. Also the neck pickup is very fat and smooth. They sounds awesome.

Re: I've been doing a lot of soldering

It seems you did a good job! I'd like to try BK pickups too. I've heard many possitive comments about them.

By the way, I'm planning to change the stock pickups in my Ibanez RG350, but I've never done anything related to soldering. Do you know a website where I can learn how to solder properly, or any book? How did you learn to solder?

And ... you chose Riverdragon because of the Nevermore song? I'm just curious

Re: I've been doing a lot of soldering

Soldering is not hard. It just takes a bit of practice. I learned from my Dad and my buddy who is an electrician. I'm sure there are plenty of resources out there to read up on it, but I don't know of any to recommend. And yes i am a Nevermore fan
