I wanna get some pickups that will give me a nice thick distortion for leads, and rhytms, but I wanna be able to play clean as well.

I heard this pick up is nice for distortion. Is it smooth or fuzzy.

WHat other recommendations do you guys have.

Listen to some Death stuff. Chuck used X2Ns. IMO, they sound fantastic.

- VJ & VJ cab

When they were released.
Quote by Reincaster
I once got shocked by a spider amp.

I got powers like spiderman did, except I model everyone else's powers poorly.

Chuck Schuldiner used them.

Steve Vai used one in his sticker strat, used mainly when he was with Zappa and in the flex-able album, he also uses it in various albums for rythm tracks and stuff.

Well i want a tone thats edgy and heavy for leads. Will this be it or will something else be better?

By the way I use a blackheart amp. Really good tube amp. Is it good enough?

Giggin I use a JCM800.

Ibanez RGT42dx

Mahogany body
Neck through body

Replaced the bridge for an OFR which affected my sustain. I think I get less sustain than i used with the edge III.

The X2N is flat-out wrong unless you just want to make noise.

Get a Breed instead.
Actually called Mark!

I wanna do something with a heavy but melodic tone. Something where the chords will sound heavy yet the notes will come out clear.


So give me your recommendations.
#16
Well I neede a neck and bridge pickup.

So ok i might get a breed. What else is there? where do i use the breed.neck or bridge. They also sell two different versions. A neck one and a bridge one.

Then get two Breeds, a neck and a bridge one...put the bridge one at the bridge and the neck one at the neck.

Its that really versatil. I don't really know thats why im seeking advise. But I would think its more versatil to have two different ones.

Breeds were designed for Ibanez Jems, and a RG is practically the same thing.

Go Breeds

Would they work well with thrash and heavier forms of metal?
