The X2N is a humbucker that is as merciful as it is uncompromising. The two full-length pole blades give the X2N a menacing look, and that`s exactly what suits it. DiMarzio's most powerful pickup was designed to drive R&O amps to full output. The result is a sound that can only be described as "mörderful". The X2N's magnetic field is very powerful and directional. No matter in which guitar it is installed, the respective sound character is übernommen. If the guitar sounds rather warm, the X2N transforms it into a steam hammer. A high-pitched guitar, on the other hand, will only screech. And yet the X2N is also versatile: the single-coil and serial-parallel modes are particularly effective, as the X2N's output power gives these sounds more weight than would be possible with weaker pickups.

Tech Talk: The X2N is always the right choice when maximum power and distortion are needed. The two pole blades produce a very even, balanced sound. The X2N should ideally be combined with other high-output pickups. However, it also cuts a fine figure in combination with the Fast Track 1, the Chopper and the Pro Track. The split option works very effectively, as each of the two coils offers similar performance to many Strat-style pickups.
