Hi guys!
Just bought a '92 ibanez S Custom Shop Series (not really a custom guitar just a marketing idea).

For the neck i'll go for a liquifire that's a wonderful neck pickup IMO.

But my problem is this:
The bridge pickup! I need something ballsy and chuggy with an enough focused attack for djent, tight ballsy riffs and good clarity with open chords.

I play mostly metal from power and progressive to death and post hadcore so I often go from E standard to B or lower.

A pickup as versatile as possible!

I'm considering d-sonic (bar towards the bridge), crunch lab (bar towards the bridge) and tone zone.

Thanks for the replies to another boring pickups thread guys :wink:

I'm understanding that the crunchlab is not for me, I feel it's too punchy in the low-mids / lows...

The dominion seems to be very interesting but it'is new and I can't find any demo of this pickup..

How do the d sonic and the dominion compare in terms of tone, clarity and balance with the liquifire?

And another question: in your opinion an Air norton pairs better with the d sonic than the liquifire?

Thank you guys

The Tone Zone is one hell of a pickup when used in the right axe. If you can EQ an amp you can get a great sound from one. Those mids can get boomy at low tunings, but nothing you can't fix with a 2 band compressor. I liken it to a Fred with more bass and output.
