DiMarzio DP 102BK X2N F-Spaced

X2N Humbucker

The ideal partner for all those who need a bridgeHumbucker to squeez everything out of their amp. In addition, with the 4 wire cable the X2N offers diverse wiring possibilities (e.g. parallel or single-coil circuit via additional switch or push-pull pots), which also enables a tamed sound for rhythm stuff. Hot!

THE CHUCK SCHULDINER DIMARZIO X2N MICROPHONE

Garry, 14.10.2011
This microphone has a minimum output level! More than 500 mv ....
It was designed to saturate tube amps because at the time there was no modeling amp or pedal high gain.
I love the sound it releases, the palmutes is his favorite field.
On the other hand, it needs a powerful microphone in the neck to keep a balanced guitar in the sound spectrum. For my part, I use the dimarzio x2n in easel position and the dimarzio breed neck in sleeve. A push pull allows me to splitter the two microphones for more polivalence. Amateur heavy metal and death, dark without hesitation! At your sleeves .....

X2N vs. 81

JörgW., 20.02.2015
In order to make a direct comparison between active and passive PU's, I've bought an X2N and an EMG 81. I have two identical Ibanez Prestige RG's and one PU each. The goal was to get a maximum of power from the RG's ... so nothing with nice cleansounds!

EMG: EMG is clearly ahead! You get not only the PU, but also 1x volume and 1x tonepot, battery clip, stereo output jack and all necessary connecting cables for the installation. The installation is relatively simple thanks to the plug-in connections! Soldering is only necessary if you want to use the conventional 5-way switch! Alternatively, EMG also offers these with plug connections.
EMG PU's can not be split or operated in different ways (serial, parallel, etc.).

Equipment DiMarzio: PU, springs, slotted and cross-head screws.
The X2N is 4-wire and can be operated serially, parallel, out-of-phase and quasi as SC.

Both PU's are, of course, a detailed installation manual!

Sound: The 81er is known to be the ultimate Metalbucker!
I can not agree with that! In direct comparison, the X2N has more pressure and
Aggressiveness and sounds simply richer.

For stylisties of the tougher gait (high Gaine settings) I find that active PU's in the band context better, because the sound is somehow linear. You simply have a very good balance between bass, middle and treble. With passive PU's, it can quickly mash at high Gaineeinstellungen, which is especially noticeable in the band structure negatively. But if you just shred something for yourself, that does not have a negative effect!

Of course, it was not a scientific test with any measurements, etc. It was simply about the bare "how does it sound" ...

Clearly EMG's have the advantage that you can not get an electric shock, since the strings do not have to be earthed. However, one is now always on min. A battery.

I can recommend such a test to everyone! No reviews or CD's are capable of this!
