    Sorry if this is in the wrong section of the forum.

    Ok so I'm looking for a metal bridge pickup that's super tight, got heaps of pick attack, loads of midrange, more high mids than low mids, and less bass and treble than mids. Also I don't want it to be too crunchy or fuzzy, just a good, tight tone. Thanks.

    Dimarzio dominion, Titan, or illuminator is where I would start.

    Bareknuckle has a few djenty models that sound close to this, too...aftermath, juggernaut, etc. more expensive, though.

    Adding an alnico 8 magnet to a Duncan Custom can do I this type of thing, as well, although it's got a fair amount of low end. Big and tight sounding.

    BKP Alnico Nailbombs. Juggs may have more low mids than you are after

    I'm also really digging the Kiesel Lithiums.

    I'll also speak for BKP, especially the Alnico Nailbombs, very tight on the bottom end with a solid and open sound.

    I have the Dimarzio Titans. Great active sounding modern metal pickups. They kinda sound like what you described but are a bit flat. not much mids. The other Dimarzio's are good. Also the DActivators and DActivator X
