What should I call my new 25K pickup?

Before you vote, got to http://corduroyew.dmusic.com and listen to the soundclips for my 25K pickup. One of the clips is my pickup through a valve junior with the volume about half way up. The other is with the volume cranked. After you listen to the sound clips and tell me which name you think best suits the pickup. I’m looking for something that is both fitting and something that is appealing. The names in the list are from this discussion https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=530120&page=1&pp=20

The person who came up with the most popular name gets a free pickup.

I like the Beef Bucker-fitting name a catchy. If I was looking to buy a hi-gain pickup I'd look at the specs (25k would match it perfectly) and, subconcoiusly, I'd look for something that stood out. Beef Bucker it should be!

It kinda reminds me of a diry, cold winters day with growling winds. Due to this I've gotta go for Black October
Dave Mustain has wrote some of the most amazing solos...
That he can't actually play!

Warmouth Pickup. Or should I pick one from the list? Beef Bucker if I am restricted to names that have already been suggested, Warmouth if I can make my own suggestion.

... =| I really don't want to be rude, So I won't. The pickup sounded a little muddy. ( I have a Valve Junior, Either you're going on direct or your pickup needs to return to the drawing boards ) Is it active, Passive? Are your pots high quality? Your tone resistors any good? What guitar is the pickup in? You're not including all the varibles for those who critique... But, The Gain ***** sounded awesome. =D

what do you mean by "Either your're going on direct"?

It's a passive pickup. The pots are stock. The guitar is an RG1570. The amp is a new and un altered valve jr combo. It's just a guitar plugged into the amp, with an AKG C3000B mic into a m-audio soundcard.

I wasn't looking for a crtique. I know how the pickup sounds, and I have had many people do blind test. The pickup is good for some things and horrible for some things. I know that it sounds muddy when compaired to something like a PAF, but I also know it sounds clear and tight when compaired to a Super distortion or an invader or one of the other high output pickups that are only half as powerful.

Beef Bucker, Nasty Bastard, or Brainblaster. Those are the best ones, easily.

Yes it does. So tell me. Do you want a beef bucker or do you want something else? You can choose between a standard PAF style pickup which is about 8k with alnico 5 mags, the Beef Bucker which is 25K with neo mags, or you could have a more midpowered humbucker 12K to 14K with alnico 5 magnet. If you don't want a humbucker at all I could get you single coil. Send me an email at corduroyew@gmail.com telling me what you would like.
