    Default Suggestions please?

    Recently got myself a Schecter Omen 6, more than happy with it but wondered what pups I could install to fatten the sound a bit

    Pickups with A8 magnets like the SH-15, the Alternative 8?

    I get the feeling the A8 will blow your skirt up more so - Edgecrusher

    "Fatten" is a really vague term. What pickup is in it now, what amp are you playing, what tuning, and what music....

    Do you want more bass? More output? Less treble? Middier sound?

    Depending on the music you play there are many options.
    But if you want a "fatter" sound i personally would go for the BareKnuckle Ragnaroks of Aftermath.
    Also i like the Seymour Duncan SH5 a lot!

    The SH5 will also give you some very bright highs along with its solid bass. Any of the Customs with an A8 magnet might be a better suggestion.

    The Alt8 is an excellent suggestion to get big solid bass with good mids and smooth highs. But if you want a "fatter" pup (more bass AND more mids) with LESS highs you could go with the Invader. VERY big and fat!

    You can always throw a tone zone in there for some increased bass.

    I'd just throw a Custom in there and keep on rocking. They have plenty of bass, output, and they are easily found.
