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. 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 focused 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.
Bridge position on solid body guitars.
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.
