Hi. Im primarily a strat player. I love the tone i'm getting from single coils but i really hate the noise they come with. With a clean tone, i don't really notice it that much. But when i'm playing with overdrive , the noise really annoys me. I can't play comfortably because i get paranoid when playing around people, thinking "Am i too noisy? Does the noise distract them from the music?" , etc Now here are two options i'm thinking about: 1. Get the Suhr Backplate 2. Get a set of Dimarzio Area Pickups Im really leaning to get the backplate as i love the tone im getting from my pickups. But it's really expensive while going the noiseless route is much cheaper. I can even sell my current pickups to get some of the money back. But i'm afraid that if i switch to noiseless, i'll lose my tone. The pickups are fender 57/62. I really love the quack from the notch positions. The question is: Are there any reasons NOT to get the suhr backplate? Any downsides to it? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
