Im looking to buy some new pickups, right now I have evos in the both positions in my les paul, but i want something with really good cleans but also the good metal chunk and really dig in there. However, I want clean notes when I play with distortion too, I know its a lot to ask. I play through a Mesa Rect-o-verb but im probably going to return it and get a dual rec.
I replaced the pickups in my SG to the Seymour Duncan SH4 and the SH2N. They are very versatile.
I play altmetal to some fairly hard metal once in awhile, stuff like Breaking Benjamin, Chevelle, Tool, etc.. also some stuff like trivium, shadows fall, but im not too worried on getting the latter sound, some bite would be nice tho. Im willing to pay around $200 give or take.
