another pick-ups/amp question...
I know this is a played out subject, but I am looking for some new pickups for my axe. Im looking to have a tone similar to what megadeth had on Countdown to Extinction or youthanasia.
So far my setup is this,
Guitar - Peavy EXP V-Type (not the greatest guitar, but I am very picky about my guitars and I like the way this one plays)
Amplification, I Run an old no name 4x12 with celestian speakers. I have a MossValve 150watt Stereo PowerAmp, (I run it mono, because I have not yet modified the cab to be stereo)
Now as for my preamp it is a DOD RP50, I started playing a few months ago and all the above was the left over gear that I never sold, I was on a budget and needed something cheap that I could easily replace later.
So I am looking for ideas on replacement pickups and a preamp, I want a heavy cruch sound, like mentioned above... I want something that will make an awesome rythem sound. I like playing lead but when I get another band started my focus will be rythem and singing.. so a lead tone is not really needed.
