Is there any good pickups that are crystal clear but still have a heavy distortion, (EMP?)

I have default BC Rich Warbeast Trace pickups and can't play eruption cause the other strings vibrate too much. Or is it something else>?

your other strings are vibrating cause you're not muting them ...

just improve your playing and making the notes you want to sound, sound- and the ones you dont want to sound, muted (practise by utilizing your picking hand's sidepalm, you're fretting hand's thumb and fretting hand's fingers that arent in use).

itll take a fair bit of practice but it isnt hard to get a hold of

It's clearly not your pickups. You said it yourself you can't play eruption because the strings are rattling because of the vibrations. Try muting them with side of palm or something.

Bridge springs cause unmuted strings to suddenly mute?

Practice proper muting, new pickups wont help your problem.

It 's not the muting cause i do that, i think the strings are too sensetive, (I tried it on a frinds guitar and it was fine) btw it's tuned down to Drop D too

Play on the neck pickup? Lower gain? A similar thing happens to my guitar and not my friends, but you just gotta improve your technique.

no, if they're vibrating then you're not sufficiently muting them. EMGs will only give your strings more sensitivity.
