you have a guitar with emgs according to your sig, what's wrong with those ?
i used to be a mod, then i took an arrow in the knee.

well I mean they work good for it but Is there any better? I want to get a new guitar. I don't know how to change pickups or anything.

i have some sort of EMG select or something and an HZ

yeah, a rectoverb or roadking combo...

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

It's the amp I'm afraid. While the EMG HZ is crap it should be more than capable of doing some metallica tones.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not

i nailed a perfect metallica tone with a johnson practice amp and a digitech heavy metal distortion pedal, digitech has some nice decently priced pedals

But what you really need is a better amp.

After listening to a few of the clips, although your tone is alright, it does sound "small".
Pickups won't really help that.

oic.
But, barring a low quality recording setup, I could tell that although you did well for the gear that you have, it could be much better sounding with a new amp.
New pickups won't change your tone much either, especially if you're running a Vox DA.
By small, I meant kind of thin and fizzy.

If you really want new pick-ups and want to sound like Metalica: Duncan Blackouts.

But really the emg's you have should work just fine. I would prob go an buy a new amp instead of new pickups. Orange Tiny Terror maybe?

I have a guitar with an EMG 81/85 set and another with an HZ in the bridge and honestly, while I generally don't like the HZ anymore and prefer the actives, the HZ gets a better Metallica tone through my setup. I'd have to reiterate what the other guys said and consider a new amp. Trust me I went through the whole "if I change my pups my tone will change" and it will, but nominally. New pups might be better but it's not going to give you a night and day change that you're probably looking for.
