Description Technical Specs
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. DiMarzios highest gain pickup was created to push tube amps into total overdrive. DP102BK - Black X2N®

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.

Tech Talk

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.
