I was wondering what pickups I should get preferrably not over 200 for them both.
I like to play a lot of blues but I also want to be able to get a good distortion tone too.
Any suggestions?

PAF's?
BKP Stormy Monday's?
Dimarzio Air Norton/Crunch lab?


BKPs would be over his budget if he can't spend more than 200 total. Perhaps 1 BKP + another cheaper pickup would work.

BKP Stormy Monday's + SD SH-2n (Jazz) ? Would depend on the guitar

£200 or $200??

you could get a set of BKPs for £200, but if you're amp isn't half decent you wont get any noticeable difference in tone really

You're not going to notice much difference in tone with that amp, sorry.

its not that bad of an amp. its definately not a tube amp but it can get close to sounding like one.

Regardless of what you think of it, the fact is it's an unspectacular, entry level amp that's sorely lacking in dynamics and character.

It's your money at the end of the day, but dropping $200 on pickups with that amp is a waste of money if you want to improve your tone. There will be some improvement but it's only going to be subtle and I guarantee you won't think it was worth what you spent, you'd be better off spending it on a pedal.

you'll be spending $200 for no noticeable difference in tone, so whats the point?? save up more cash and get a better amp. and with $200 forget BKPs seymour duncan or dimarzio is your friend, but once you have a decent amp

I was thinking about saving up for a Marshall MA100c 100w 2x12 but it is a little out of my pricerange.
Any tube amps for less than $500 that are decent. preferably a 2x12
