Does this combo work good in B tuning?

Those work well in any tuning. Best pickups. Seymour himself says this pair is his favourite, despite all the others the company has made after them.

The JB is just hot enough for anything while retaining a lot of clarity. It's probably my favourite pickup despite having tried so many others. The closest to it to my ears is the Suhr Doug Aldrich, but that one is more like a smooth lead sound, more controlled than the former.

EDIT: Except maybe for the SD Distortion, which IMO is the only equal to the JB for a metal sound in terms of passive pickups. If you must have actives, go for the EMTY Blackouts or the Gus G ones.
