The X2N® is a "take-no-prisoners, in-your-face" humbucker. Twin, wide-bar pole pieces give the X2N® a nasty, dangerous look - and rightly so. DiMarzio's highest gain pickup was created to push tube amps into total overdrive. Put one in the bridge position for a powerful jolt to the voltage the amp sees from your guitar. The result is a sound that can only be described as blistering. The magnetic field of the X2N® is very powerful and focused. It captures the character of whichever guitar it's in. If your guitar is warm sounding, the X2N® will act like a sledgehammer. A bright-sounding guitar will go into total scream mode. And the X2N® still has versatility: single-coil and series-parallel modes are particularly effective, because the X2N® pickup's power gives these sounds more authority than is possible with weaker humbuckers.

The X2N® works in any situation where maximum power and overdrive is required. The dual blade pole pieces 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™, The Chopper™, and Pro Track™. The split option is very effective, because a single X2N® coil has similar performance parameters to many Strat®-type pickups.

Its a 1 trick pony . I've tried it in 3 different guitars , Alder , ash and mohagany all 3 sounded muddy . I use an EVH 5150 and to my ear it's the only pick up that sounds ... well for lack of a better word... blah ! Let friends try it to see if I could sell it and it has come back 3x . If your just a chugger in drop tuning have at it . This is just my opinion though someone else may think much differently about it ,but so far everyone has agreed with me about it . Good luck !

I had this installed at the local Long & Mcquade. I must say this pick up really lives up to it's reputation. I have it in the bridge of my ESP Viper-50 Ltd. The only way I can describe it is that it's a cross between a Sledgehammer & a Razor Blade meaning that there's a lot of bottom end on the rythms & the midrange slices through especially on notes. This is an awesome pickup for the Metal Player for anything from traditional metal like Priest or Accept to Extreme Death, Doom or Black Metal. If you're not wanting to spend a lot on an active pick up like an EMG or a Blackout I would definitely recommend the Dimarzio X2n.
