Would a pair of X2N's or Super Distortion's in both the Neck and Bridge be good?

Dimarzio's website they're recomended for the Bridge, but key word there is recomded,

And if not thoise, any other suggestions (wanting to stick with Dimarzio's)

the dimarzio forums have some pretty knowledgeable people on this subject.

First of all, I enjoy deathcore for it's complexity and it's the only genre heavy enough for me

I want an amp good for playing hippie tunes. I want it to be an actual amp, not a tube amp.

do you really care that much? don't you want the opinion of the most knowledgeable people on the subject?

do they HAVE to be Dimarzios?

I really don't get the insistence on a particular brand of pickups the difference in tone between models made by the same brand can be just as big, if not more significant than the difference in sound between brands.

I have a super distortion in my Ibanez's neck and bridge and it doesn't sound that bad. It doesn't sound bad but I think one super distortion is like 5 years older than the other so take that into part. I got them both used for only $27 each. they're great.

the paf pro isnt really vintage sounding. Its way too hot for that. The air norton and classic are more "vintage sounding".

Super Distortion at the Bridge and Humbucker From Hell at the Neck is what I use.

The real question here is what guitar are you putting them in, we need to know what kind of wood these pickups are going into. makes a huge difference.
Gearz:
Squier classic vibe 50's strat, modded.
Dunlop 535q
Korg Pitchblack
Carvin X100B

Coming soon to a pedal board near you:

Asking us which pickup combo is right for you is like asking me to show how my opinion that blue is a better color than red should also apply to you...pickups, like colors, are all different, and are entirely a matter of taste. What sounds bad to others sounds good to me, what sounds good to others sounds bad to me...

If you want to find a good DiMarzio set for you, then go play some guitars with DiMarzios in them and decide what you like for yourself. It's the only way to know for sure.
