Anyone with experience know what pickup can give you a good rock tone?

I'm searching for some tone like mmm something really rock and kinda heavey.... Like Paul Gilbert, Angus young, well you know.

I saw while searching seymore duncans blackouts but I also saw that they were metal-ish like. Don't know if it fits for rock.

Any idea anyone?

Also I would like to know some prices please

Thanks in advance

What kind of guitar, amp and other equipment do you use?

A pick up changes your tone, but not as drasticly as, say an amp.

I have a roland cube 20x and an ibanez sas32ex guitar

But I think I know I should change my pick ups because I still think it's not rocky enough on my teacher's amp.

if your guitar and amp are of reasonable quality and range then effects pedals is where you should be looking. a bit of distortion and/or overdrive gives a classic rock sound.

Well the effects on my current amp seems to be ok

Imma try to do like you say, just a bit of disto/overdrive and it should work.

i am not familiar with the roland cube so i can't comment it's features.

what i really meant was separate effects pedals such as boss or dod etc, you would really need to try some out, preferably with similar guitar/amp combination to your own.

your local friendly music store should be able to help you out, especially if they think you are going to buy.
