Does anyone find this clip annoying?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W38IH_ujZUE

I'm assuming this person that upload the clip is not affiliated with Bare Knuckle pickups because he starts "bragging" about his chain of effects and stop boxes. Confused

Most Youtube gear reviews are crap, these guys more interested in talking and seeing themselves on camera than actually doing a decent demo.

If I click on a review and the guy doesn't start playing inside 30 seconds, I'm done.

Morons. Laughing

If you haven't heard of BareKnuckle pickups, stop this video now and reconsider your existence.


Done, I stopped the video. I have heard of them, but that video is terrible.

I stopped the video also. Right after he went through his effect chain. Aside from the wonky focus on each stomp box (I guess on purpose), he didn't say very much about each effect. I guess we're supposed to know what each one was.

Also, he made some pretty subjective claims right away and didn't bother to back them up. "These are the best pickups I've ever played. Much better than Seymour Duncan"- really? Beats one manufacturer (albeit the inventor of the modern HB) and that crowns it the best in the world?

And that accent was tough to deal with. Seems he wasn't trying to speak clearly, and mumbled some of the "script".

Yes, very annoying.

Generally irritating. Shitty players with no touch don't sell gear .

I agree with Mark - STF up and play. I bought an Atomic Amplifire based on this demo - the guy has a great set of hands and really does the product justice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=akDQPyc7lrk
