I recently bought an ltd ec-100qm since they dont have much of a low end and clean sound im changing the pups for a dimarzio(only these brand of pups are available here). Can you site me some good pair of dimarzio aside from air norton/tone zone? I play metal mostly and i want the lows to shine more than mid and highs. Im new on these im an ignorant on choosing pups. Please entlighten me thanks!

The best thing to do would be to try some of them out. If you cant do that then go on the dimarzio website and look at their EQ and try to figure out whats best for you.

I've heard the Tone Zone's good for metal.

Matt Aub from Timelord uses a Tone Zone and I think an Air Norton here. I have a Super Distortion/PAF Pro combo in my ML and to be honest I think it's got a much nicer, tighter tone than my Schecter's EMGs(though I mostly play older-school metal/hard rock, I play old-school death metal and black metal too, but I'm not big on the whole djent/metalcore craze of late. Regardless what I play doesn't really seem to be an EMG's home turf, so that could be why I'm not fussed on them). If you're playing real heavy stuff though you could always try the D-Activators, Chris Broderick and John 5 use those and they play heavy stuff.

Nah, I prefer to tune lower. My tunings usually go into weird Hebrew symbols.

What do you recommend for the chugging sound? I do cover of a local metal band and do lots of alternate picking on the 6th string.

I wouldn't go for those, I recommend a D-Activator set.

But what amp are you playing into?

Oh come on, get Super Distortion on bridge, nothing needed to say, everything is in it's name. It has very high bass with a chunky distortion and hot, warm clean tones. Get a P.A.F pro for neck to fit it, has damn good distortion and clean tones. You can play everything with them from jazz to heavy metal.
