Ok i play in a metal core band, my sg is usually in drop b. I play through a Peavey valveking 212 combo. Stocks arent cutting it, I want passives that have high output, but are clear unlike like the dimebucker, or sh-8 invader. Im looking at a Seymour Duncan JB, do you guys have anything better to reccomend?

Don't get the Dirty Fingers; it's sterile and harsh with no clarity whatsoever. Anybody that likes it is frankly wrong. It's so crap I can say that objectively, man.
Alright, not objectively, but I thought it was horrible.
The JB is a nice pickup but for an SG it won't work; due to the way the pickups respond to the strings in an SG your pickups will sound best if their output is either vintage or extreme. No halfway house.
Drop tuned metal is to my ears very well served by a DiMarzio D-Sonic with the bar towards the bridge. Outstanding clarity even when your strings are flopping around in drop Zb.
The Wilde Bill Lawrence L500 is supposed to be outstanding too; I'm looking around for one to try, you should as well because it suits your needs.
As far as a neck position pickup is concerned I suggest a DiMarzio Evolution Neck model. Should cut through the very dark tone that an SG has.
Also, if you have a good budget then Bare Knuckle Warpigs are the best thigs you could ever do for an SG if you play metal.

+1 to the D Sonic, you pretty much described it in your post.
Actually called Mark!

I've never really looked into Dimazzio, but I think that sounds good
