Drop c tuning. what pickups should i use?

hey guys, tuning down to drop c for the first time for this metal band and i need the humbuckers to match. the dimarzio evolutions sound good on it but would like something with a little more beef in it. just the bridge pickup really. any advice?

The Mick Thomson Blackout in the bridge sounds mighty for downtuning. Great clarity and high output.

Seymour Duncan Custom will do exactly what you want.DiMarzio Dominion may work nicely too.

Realy depends on what sound you want.
I find that low/moderate output pickups thru a highgain amp give me more tone control.
Pickups with alnico 2 magnets work best for me,like:Seymour Duncan. Custom-Custom, 59-Hybrid.
