I have an Ibanez PGM3 and was considering replacing the bridge pickup with may be a D activator x? Body is basswood.

I mostly play thrash/death and tune down to D.
For recording I go straight from a boss gt-8 to the PC and I get a very good sound but think it could do with more definition and tighter crunchier lows for palm muting.

And another point.. with effects units, you set the input level according to the pickups output. So would getting a "hot" pickup make much difference seeing you'd have to bring the input level on the effects unit down anyway?

Many thanks!

To summarise.. I'd just like to know if something like the d activator-x would be much better than the stock inf2, for a modern death metal sound?

Thanks!
