    I'm not sure what you mean by "noisy" pickups.

    Think you are probably doing fine with EMG's, but if I were going to try Lace for what you described I definitely liked clips with the Bill Kelliher Dissonant Aggresors better than the Drop & Gains.

    You might want to check the Duncan Nazgul too.

    I use the dirty heshers for doom/sludge. They are extremely articulate. if you are going for the loose, muddy thing, you will need to back off the guitars tone knob, and eq appropriately. I would say they sound more alive than a set of emgs.

    I recently saw sleep play, and Matt pike was using them. I much preferred his sound to the tones recorded on their album holy mountain.
