If you dont have a good amp new pups arent going to do anything really.



I know that... I have a little Crate GFX 15 for practice that kicks ass for being a solid state 30 watt...

Theres nothing wrong with the Crate I have now... But I am supposed to be putting new outputs in a 350w solid state sometime with a 2x12 or 4x12 cabinet

Yeah, maybe I do need a new amp but I guess I'm looking for new pick ups so my amp doesn't have to do all the crunch work... its about output->input, so I kinda figured pickups may be a cheap alternative to getting another amp

In your case, new pickups are only for decoration, since they'll do a very minimal difference to your tone.
Once you get a new (better tube amp), pickups will make a much bigger difference.

Between those pu's i would choose the powerrails because the crunchy rails supposedly have less mids which is an auto turn off.

And yeah, with a tube amp pickups would make a big difference, but with ss its not gonna make much difference. Unless of course your pickups are really bad right now.
