EMG-KFK - Same as the Zakk Wylde but with a gain booster.
EMG-ZW - Good set, set most people have.
EMG-MH - I wouldn't recommend it unless you're putting it in a strat or something cause in a mahogony or similar body an 85 doesn't sound too great in the bridge (imo).
Duncan Blackout - I'd probably go with these, they've been getting some great reviews and people that have been devout EMG players are now switching to these.
Duncan Livewire Dave Mustaine - Nice sounding pickups as well, friend of mine has these but he has them in a crappy guitar so I'm sure they'd sound a lot better in a nice one.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

Where is everywhere? Have you tried the actual product reviews on UG yet? I say always filter rating results so that the worst ratings are first base at least half of your decision on what's wrong with each pup.
