If you like metalcore and the EMG 81 doesn't do it for you, you're either doing something really wrong or you need a new amp.

Well it's a ****ty Ibanez so that may be the problem but I'm also looking into some Black Outs.

Get a new amp. New pickups aren't going to make a shitty amp sound good.

Price range?

you might wanna try an emg 85 in the bridge...it will be thicker sounding...both AILD and Killswitch Engage use the 85 in the bridge.

Well I have 800 bucks so now after seeing some responses I should just get a better amp, though my f-50 still sounds better than my ec-500 dirty-wise.. and i got the f-50 for 100 bucks and the ec-500 for 630.. hmm

So...You just have a ****ty Ibanez practice amp? When people are asking about your amp, you usually tell them the model number. The brand name doesn't always mean it's good or bad.

Anyway, you problem is most likely your amp, and 800 bucks would go a long way towards a nicer amp.

Your amp is more influential than pickups in your signal chain, when it comes to your tone. I'd say around 70% of your tone. So if you have a ****ty amp, that's the weak spot in your signal chain.

What country do you live in? US?

Bad idea. Bad amp.

Why don't you trust craigslist or eBay? I've bought all of my gear used, if I didn't build it myself.

Check out the Randall RG50TC.

Holy ****.. I just fell in love I think, that amp is awesome! Thank you o____o..

Well I had this one half stack.. won't say the name because it's hated here ;p, which was ordered from Craig's List, guy said it was pretty much brand new, but when it got here it wouldn't play. took it to a music store and guess it had been broken for a while had something to do with most likely being kicked.. i dunno confusing stuff. Fixed it but it still goes off and on randomly..

This may sound stupid but I love that rg50 amp but I don't like how it's just a combo i like half-stacks full stacks so.. yes extremely ignorant i know but o yeah haha, any recommendations for that?

Well, for one thing, they have a head version, check it out.

Secondly, it's a tube amp. It's 50 watts. It's freakin' loud. Deafeningly loud - and that is by no means an exaggeration. There will be little to no difference in volume between a 50 watt tube combo and a 50 watt tube half stack. If you know how to EQ an amp right, a combo can get damn heavy.

And I don't get why you ordered an amp off craigslist, I always go out and try them out first.
eBay is a different thing, but you just REALLY have to be smart about it. Check prior listings that finished, check his feedback thoroughly, pay through a secure method, etc, etc...
