i was thinking of changing pickups in my fender strat. i cant decide between these two pickups " fender samarium cobalt noiseless pickups" or "fender lace sensors (blue/silver/red)". i play rock, blues,metal. i want something thats good for clean and hi-gain stuff.

What position? Single / humbucker?

I have a Dimarzio HS3 in my strat, you should consider that,


We originally created the HS-3™ to be a warmer bridge-position companion to the HS-2™. Yngwie Malmsteen adopted it for his standard neck and bridge pickup, and almost overnight the HS-3™ acquired the reputation of being a high-powered metal pickup. This isn’t really the case—the HS-3™ is actually a smooth and relatively quiet pickup that produces a sweet overdrive tone without jagged edges. What Yngwie discovered is that these qualities combine perfectly with a heavily distorted amp, because the sound won’t get muddy or messy. The HS-3™ is also versatile—it’s a noise-free pickup in a live situation or in the studio.
Let me tell you about heartache and the loss of god
Wandering, wandering in hopeless night
Out here in the perimeter there are no stars

Out here we is stoned
Immaculate.
