I'm switching out my pups when I get my new guitar in the future (Jackson WR1 Warrior)

I've picked out the DiMarzio Air Norton as my neck pup

I play a lot of metal: Death, Trivium, Sepultura, Annihilator, Megadeth, old Metallica, Slayer, Cynic, Machine Head, Pantera, Children of Bodom, etc.

My favorite genres of metal I guess are Death and Thrash metal.

I'm interested in keeping my pups from the same company.


So yup, just need help picking out an awesome bridge pup.

easily the tone zone! its chunky thick and harmonics are amazing!

Ehh

idk about the tone zone.

I was looking into the X2N but I heard there are better bridge Dimarzio's.

Then there's the Super Distortion

or

the Evo

so many choices lol

Also I'd just like to throw in that I prefer passive pups to actives.

D-Sonic all the way - the Tone Zone isn't really a metal pickup at all, it's too honky and full-on.
Actually called Mark!

You're already got one passive pickup, and it's pretty unpractical to use both a passive and an active pickup in the same guitar. It's possible, but it's a pain in the behind. So pretty much everyone uses either all passives or all actives.

Exactly


The Air Norton is a passive neck pup

and what I was trying to say is that I definetly want another passive pup in the bridge lol.


Yeah but I'm diggin the x2n but like I said, I want to do a little more exploration first.

the d sonic if you want lots of tight bass and a monster sound when you tune down, the crunch lab if you want good balanced metal sound with lots of crunch, evo or tone zone if you want good shredding, X2N if you want tons of output for a thrash type sound, and super distortion for a thick sound
periphery/bulb!

gear:
Ibanez RG7321 w/ D-sonic in bridge

Peavey 5150 mk ii & b52 4x12 cab

line 6 podxt for recording

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

x2n sounds like what I'm looking for


Thanks for the input guys!

^ Taking your avatar into account, that's a good choice. I'm fairly certain Chuck used them.
