Hi. At the moment I have a Dimarzio Super Distortion in my Schecter omen 6 guitar. It works and sounds pretty good. I mostly play it through Guitar Rig 5 and a 6505+ head. Overall I like the tone I get, but I also want something slightly "cleaner" meaning a little more clarity. I mainly play this guitar in standard tuning or drop D, sometimes I set my guitar up for drop tunings, but rarely.
Can you guys recommend me some pickups for crunchier, cleaner metal tone. The SD isn't really muddy, but it doesn't have enough of that modern crunch that I want.. I love a clear crunchy pickup. I guess something "tighter", that sounds good palm muted and when playing fast thrashy palm muted stuff.
Maybe the Steve's Special? Supposed to work wood with basswood since it's midrangey wood and the SS is scooped.
