Product Description

The DiMarzio X2N Humbucker Pickup is a take no-prisoners, in your face humbucker.
Twin, wide-bar pole pieces give the X2N a nasty, dangerous look; and rightly so. Our highest gain pickup excels at thrashing your amplifier into screaming overdrive. Put one in the bridge position for a powerful boost in the voltage the amp sees from your guitar. The result is a hot sound with relentless drive. If your amp needs to see more gain in order to go over-the-top in the overdrive department, the X2N's output and EQ are focussed to slam the signal through with authority. Not that the X2N is completely single-minded; 4-conductor wiring permits single-coil and parallel humbucking operation for a wide selection of hot, musical sounds.

Recommended For:
Bridge position on solidbody guitars

Tech Talk:
The X2N works in any situation where maximum power and overdrive is required. The dual blade polepieces create a very even, balanced sound. The X2N works best in combination with higher-output pickups. It can also combine well with the Fast Track 1, Chopper and Pro Track. The split option is very effective, because a single X2N coil has similar performance parameters to many Strat type pickups.

Product Review

I first installed this pickup during my metal yrs if the early nineties in a Washburn MG70. From my first time to now I can tell you that there isn’t a better pickup for metal or for punishing the front end of a tube amp. What’s great about this pickup is that it doesn’t lose articulation even under the highest gain settings. It also sounds nice on the number 2 position when combined with a single coil. Great cleans when split or in parallel. Be warned though, this pickup has a sweet spot as far as height goes. And if you’re not in it, you won’t get the full potential of this pickup. But man oh man when you get it there. Magic. If you’re into buttery vintage tones, look elsewhere. If you’re into a great modern high output tone, you cannot do better than the X2N.

My favorite pickup!

Product Review

I have used this pickup live and on nearly everything I've recorded with the Graveyard Apostles. Its a snarling beast that's made for metal. But it is NOT limited to metal by any means. Keep it drastically lower from the strings than mere mortal pickups and you get the most out of it.Cleans without breakup. Clarity under massive gain settings. Chunk. Unreal harmonics.String balance. And still enough output to make actives cry for mercy! Simply stated...badass!
