Thanks for all the answer so far.
The guitar is almost an octave (10 semitones) below standard Drop D, basically is my poor man 8 Stringer . But I'm not in djent, I like meshugga but I don't play anything like that (may be in the future).
The things I'm experimenting right now are arpeggios (in all king of ways picked, figerpicked, swaped, tapped), chordal tapping, complex chord work, and space atmospheres, also some lead guitar work but I donīt shred mutch.
My rig used to be a Fender Twin Reverb and Dual Rectifier through a custom made 2x12 Hellatone 60L (thats a Celestion Vintage 30 with a 55hz dust cup). But more and more am playing directly through an emulation based rig with an Eleven Rack and a GSP1101.
Back to the topic based on my internet research the number one pickup that came to my attention was the Bareknucle Aftermath ... But having a Miracleman in one of my guitars I think BKs are great pickups, but not worth the extra cash, IMHO...
Also been in a third world county with foreign money exchange restrictions makes my choices more difficult... I research my local and national online stores and couldn't find any Lace Pickups, nor Crunch Lab or Liquid Fire. I'm trying to avoid going the active way with this project.
I'm very brand agnostic but I happen to have more DiMarzios than any other pickups but mainly cos the are cheaper and sound good. But I have EMGs, Seymour Duncans and BK also and I like them all in different ways (I like having a few "colors" to choose from).
I found a D-Activator set at a good price, also a SD Distortion set... so I'm between those two options... I also can get an EMG set but as I told I'm trying to avid actives for this particular project
What do you think between D-Activator set vs SD Distortion set in this particular case? or should I swallow the EMG pill and go with EMG 89/81tw set? (single coil sounds are important to me)
