8 string pickup

so recently i bought a schecter omen 8 and i'm looking to change the bridge pickup, i want a passive pickup for a djenty tone, don't mind the budget, i'm gonna start saving money after i've decided. Suggestions?

Dimarzio recently released the Ionizer, Tosin Abasi's sig pickup. If that doesn't get djent for you from a pickup, nothing will other than a Lungren M8 (Meshuggah sig pickup)

Edit: Amp and its EQ are more important than pickups though.

Bare Knuckle Aftermath. The DJENTIEST of them all.

Go and look up Bare Knuckle Pickups, I think I'm correct in saying that all of their humbuckers (Except the Black Hawk) are available in eight-string.

The BKP Aftermath and Painkiller are meant to be great for the whole djent thing, but have a look at the others too, or even email them and get a recommendation. Dimarzio have the D-Activators, and have recently introduced a Tosin Abasi signature pickup, they're both worth looking at. Lundgren M8's would probably suit you, but from what I remember they're very expensive.

I don't like Avenged Sevenfold anymore. I was 14 when I joined & the 6661 in the username seemed a great idea at the time. Sigh.

Usually I would fanboy the hell out of Bareknuckle in a thread like this, but I'd be more inclined to look at the Ionizer first. Djent as anything you could ask for, and then some.

Either the Bareknuckle Aftermaths, Painkillers or the EMG 808's

But as everyone else, I must tell you to look at the Aftermaths FIRST!

bare knuckle was my first option too, but the thing is i live in romania and it's kinda hard to find something like that around here, what i did find was a dimarzio d activator. should i get it or try and find a way to get a bareknuckle?

You can probably order direct from Bareknuckle, it'll just be pricey postage.

Ordering direct from BK is the main way you go about getting the pickups. They hand wind them to each order.
