i'm in a metal band now and want to know if there are any good single coil or single coil sized pups that would be good for that. it would only be one in the bridge position of a strat.
check seymour duncans website
Seymour Duncan Hotrails... And some Dimarzio pickups... Its all preference on whats metal... Clutch uses vintage pickups and their "metal" lol
not like "heavy metal", but more like "metalcore", though i hate to say that. it's hard to put our band sound in a genre, but metalcore is the closest, but not that close.
Then go with active single coil... go on EMG's website and they got a bunch of single coil actives
Dimarzio Super Distortion S
A really hot single coil is what you want. My recommendations are either an emg, a Seymour Duncan hotrail, or just a really hot dimarzio
