I have a fender american strat, and im looking to upgrade the pickups.

I play alot of hard rock and borderline-metal.

Can anyone recomend any single coil pickups?

I would prefer them to come in a set of three to save money, but if they don't thats fine too.

Ive been looking at the fender custom shop texas pickups, would those be heavy enough for me?
Single coils for hard rock? Seymour Duncan Hot Rails is the first that comes to mind
1980 Gibson SG Standard Cherry Red
Ibanez TM-71 Talman Artcore Semi-Hollow
2003 Tom Delonge Fender Strat Seafoam Green
Traynor YCV40
Duncan's Everything Axe set.
Ibanez RG321MH (Air Classic/Tone Zone)
Fernandes Telecaster (Twang King/stock bridge pickup)
Blackstar HT-20 (Scumback 55 speaker/ Tung Sol tubes)
TC Electronic Nova Repeater
Lava Cables Clear Connect, Soar and Mini ELC
DiMarzio YJM or SEymour Duncan Hot Rails for metal

I'm new to how pick ups work.

Would i want to buy three of the same pick ups and put them in each spot? (Bridge, mid, neck)

Or will certain pickups only sound good in cerain spots?

I thought the YJM's weren't hot enough for metal?
if your looking at my profile, ive got a bugera 333XL, i traded the spider a while ago.

i should probably update that.
