hey guys i was just wondering if i could get some opinions on a few pickups i was considering to put in my dean
the dean is mahogany neck and body rosewood fret-board
i'm playing through a Marshall Jubilee
i play alot of different stuff but mostly heavy music lamb of god, machine head that kinda thing
im trying to get a tighter sound out of my guitar but i still want it to sound huge
at the moment my rig is probably a bit on the dark sounding side i wouldnt mind brightening it up a bit and i still would like a decent rock sound and be able to roll of the volume for some nice bluesy tones
the pickups ive been looking at are

X2N
ToneZone
D-Sonic
Crunch Lab

If you're stuck on DiMarzio, then the X2N or the D-Sonic are your best bets.

What kind of budget do you have? You could get some good Rockmonkey (a user on this site, CordoroyEW winds them), Bareknuckles are also a good choice.

more than the x2n, i think the D Activator X is a better bet. I used to use it, and it doesn't sound like an active much, but it is tighter than an X2N because it's designed to sound active. D sonic is also a good choice, but like I said, the D Activator X is my personal favorite from dimarzio for heavy ****.
