People were saying this amp was only $99, my 75 watt was $400. It's an amazing amp, the best for it's price range. So, yes I would like to upgrade my pickups next, since my amp is fine.

And so? Sorry but what's the point of this thread? "I have an amp that I like and I want to upgrade pickups.". Then? Do you need a suggestion for pickups?

When you make a thread, you should have something worth commenting on, or ask a question. Otherwise, you're just making yourself look dumb.

By the way, your amp is not amazing by any means get a new amp before pickups. Any type of pickup will sound exactly the same through some crappy digital Spider modeler.

Spiders arent very pickup-sensitive, meaning that the processing sounds very much the same no matter what pickups you use. So pretty much no matter what, itll sound bad with passives, and awful with actives. Maybe the Spider Tubes are better, but I havent plated em, and they are rather expensive.

I hate people like this (not personally)

If you love your sound so much (you say your amp is great), then why do you need to change your pickups. You can't be happy with your tone, if you want to change your pickups.

although he could get a so much better tone if the TS gets a new amp and then pickups.
Amps are the main part of your tone, and pickups are just to finish the tone up. So with a bad amp, your going to get a bad tone. You may think you have a good sounding amp, but go out and try some other amps at a local music shop and you'll see, thats not the best amp...
