Unhappy Which single coil pickup with Air Norton and D-sonic?

Hi everyone, I need some help. I have Music Man Silhouette (HSH) with DiMarzio Air Norton (neck) and D-sonic (bridge). Now I'm looking for a most suitable middle pickup to achieve kind of strat sound. I did try DiMarzio Cruiser but I don't like the way it sounds in the middle position. I would like to have dimarzio hum cancelling pickup to be installed. Any idea which pickup will the best? Do anyone have any sound samples? Please help

Try an Area '61. it sounds really stratty and it's quieter than a cruiser.

I have both of those in my first custom guitar (Cruiser and Area 61), and i gotta say that the Cruiser is my favorite. Absolutely incredible pickup. No wonder tone king Timmons uses it .

Thanks for all the answers! I decided to try the Cruiser because Timmons uses it But there is too much difference in output level, cruiser is too quiet;/ I tried to adjust height of the pickup but it didn't help. I'm still looking for any sound samples.

I heard that it is a great pickup, but the output is only 90. I'm afraid it will be too quiet for D-Sonic and Air Norton, am I right? I'm confused now;/
