Ok I'm gonna try this again since the first time didnt' work

Ok I want a pair of pickups a

Bridge: a crunchy distortion but not to over the top
Neck: something really smooth for a clean passage or searing solo

I've been thinking a Bill lawrence xl-1500 and a EMG 85 or hz


and on the amp side I want to play thrash so I need help because I'm not that knowledgable with amps so

I want a Really heavy crunch, but tight at the same time like Kill em'all, Reign in blood, cowboys from hell/ vuglar display of power if you get what I'm saying, or do I need to by a certain pedal besides a tube screamer

I want to stay in the SS side but tubes will be accepted,

and this is for homepractice not gigging


Thank you

yup, he does play an ibanez
a log with 6 pieces of yarn would be solid competition for it

Rule of thumb: When vastly altering your tone, new amp>new pickups.

As for your questions, I don't know where to begin...

First off, while pairing a passive pickup with an active pickup (Bill Lawrence with an EMG) is possible, its a very complicated installation/wiring process.

Second, you want something that is crunchy but not over the top in the bridge? The Bill Lawrence isn't the way to go - it is a very hot pickup. And the active EMG in the neck would make it very difficult to get a decent clean for your "clean passages".

As far as the amp is concerned, if you are sticking with a SS amp then pickups won't really be an important factor. Solid State circuitry doesn't interact with pickups in the manner that a tube amp does. Hotter pickups drive tube amps harder, giving them a higher gain output and vica versa with cooler pickups. Therefore, if you are using an active pickup you are not going to get the "active" effect on a solid state amp since active pickups are basically a low output pickup into a built-in preamp which is designed to push already overdriven tube amps harder.

What is your budget?
Why do you want to stick with a SS amp?
Are you willing to go used? and if so where do you live?
