I was wondering if anyone might recommend a few different pickups for the EJ strat that are a bit hotter/higher output, while still retaining a strat sound when played clean. I guess I'm looking for a ripping lead tone and good crunch when overdriven, but still sounding like a strat, chimey and crisp when clean. I like the EJ pickups clean, but they didn't grit up enough when overdriven. Didn't play it with any pedals(thru a bogner shiva with the OD cranked), so maybe that might take care of it (I have a Fulltone OCD, Bad Monkey, and TS-9), but I don't really wanna take all my pedals into the music store. any suggestions are welcome. Has anyone heard the noiseless pickups in the beck strat? I can't find a store that carries one to compare, but I wonder if they're a bit hotter.
