I need your help, brethrens. Should I go for the Dimarzio Tone Zone S or Seymour Duncan Hotrails? Both are great in their own. I spend a lot time to research about the 2 pickups pero I can't decide until now kung ano kukunin ko. Basically for P&W set-up. Di ko gusto ang stock pickups ko sa Squier Deluxe Stratocaster kasi ang trebly kapag bridge lang gamit ko kahit na ung tone knob ko nasa bass side na. Mapa-clean o light OD gamit ko, sobrang bright niya. Kaya ang solution ko, stick lang ako sa position 4. Iniiwasan ko ung position 5 bridge pickup lang. Pero sparkly/chimey tone naman kapag nasa position 4 (Mid + Bridge PU) which is my favorite position kapag rhythm part na! I can't stand din ung noise/hum ng single coil, which I know na nature talaga ito ng ganitong klaseng pickup. Pero based on the reviews, mas noise cancelled daw ung mga ganitong single-coil humbucker style pickups. I do like full sized humbucker, kaso gusto ko mapreserve ung itsura ng Strat na SSS configuration. Ayoko ko na din kasi gumastos for pickguard, so rejected ang full-size humbucker for me. May RG style naman ako na naka-humbucker na maghahandle sa high gain OD/Dist. Hehe.
May mga nababasa din akong reviews na mas okay daw ang Dimarzios kesa sa mga SDs regarding sa noise cancellation. Mas maganda din "daw" tone from Dimarzios kesa SDs, o vice versa? First time ko kasing magpapalit ng pickup, so no idea.

Planning na split-coil ko kapag light OD o clean at full double rail (humbucker-ish tone) kapag overdriven na ung song like Planetshakers, for versatility.

Any pickup suggestions na babagay sa worship setting (Strat syle guitar) are welcome. Basta  single-coil humbucker type pickup sana. God bless us all!

mas ok sakin ung DiMario iba kasi ung naibibigay na crunch nya ee pag dist nya. tapos mas malaman din pag OD lang ung gamit mo. tpos naka tube ka sa church nyo. ang ganda ng tunog. ung sa church namin is Vox AC30VR super ganda ng tunog nya. syempre sa ayos din ng timpla mo yan. pero to answer again your question ill go with Dimarzio. yan gamit ko sa squier affintiy ko.
