Hey guys,

I was wondering if there are good cheapo pups out there. Something in the region of 30-40 euros. Would I have to go used? It'll mainly be used for t3h br00t4lzz in very low tunings (drop A). The stock pups in my guitar seem quite muddy.

Or am I wishful thinking here that cheap pups will improve my tone?

Here's my rig:
- Jackson JS30 Dinky (cedro body, maple neck)
- Bugera 333 head (with 2 output tubes pulled)
- Valve Junior 1x12 cab (<- looks ridiculous with br00talz coming out of it )
Gear:
- Bugera 333
- VJ & VJ cab
- Jackson JS30
- TS9

You could get some GFS pups shipped overseas maybe.
Hmm, that does seem like a good idea. I'm guessing Crunchy Rails might be my best bet.

Do you have any idea if I'd have to pay some kind of import tax?

Well, I've never seen a set a of name-brand (duncan, Dimarzio) passive humbuckers for less than $130. If you got some DiMarzio D-Activators, you'd be set.

i have a set of Duncan Designed HB's "Detonators" that came in my Kelly. They weren't bad but i dont know how much of a step up they would be. Let me know if you are interested.

I just realized you are not in the US.

Unfortunately I'm not :P
All guitar stuff is so cheap over there.

I'm gonna look into the tax thing, it seems GFS is really the only option for el cheapo pups. Even used pickups are pricy here (and hard to find). Thanks for the suggestions!

I don't think cheap pups will really improve your tone very much.
Personally I'd go for a new speaker in your cabinet (or a new cabinet in general)
-I'd go for a Celestion Vintage 30 or an Eminence.)

THEN I'd save for a high quality pickup.

for the love of god get a new cab before even thinking about new pickups.
