Pickups for Strat.

I'm building a alder strat and I can't decide between:

DiMarzio Cruiser/Cruiser/AT-1 and DiMarzio Air Norton S/Chopper/Tone Zone S

I like both settings,I played about 100 times both of settings.

I would appreciated your opinion. Tnx.

Btw. I play metal and shred (satriani,vai,MAB..)

Re: Pickups for Strat.

I don't think you can go wrong with either set...but if you're looking for opinions then I would personally go with the AT-1 / Cruiser set up...I say that because the tone zone and air norton are darker sounding pickups (the TZ is rated 8.5 in the bass on the Dimarzio rating scale) and I'm not a fan of the darker tone of those pups...I liked the Air norton in the neck better than I liked the zone in the bridge but again I think I would go with the AT-1 set up imho...
