i want a pickup that will scream louder than the voices in my head and i was wondering should i choose the Dimarzio X2N or the Seymour Duncan Invader?

^if you're only going to pick between those two, the x2n, for electrik's reasoning

but i recommend you look into the swineshead xbucker, and bareknuckle warpig, miracle man and nailbomb

the kent armstrong motherbucker would be worth a look too!

Well, if you're only looking at those 2 pick-ups, then I'd suggest the x2n (I've only tried it once, but it wasn't bad). It's got a really thrash metal style tone. If that's your thing, then it's a great pick-up. I found that it wasn't so great for playing lead. I don't like the Invader.

if you're willing to look at other companies (and i think you should! ), look into the swineshead xbucker (i don't have this, but i have some of their other pickups, and they'r excellent), the bareknuckle warpig, nailbomb and miracle man, and the kent armstrong motherbucker.

EDIT: the xbucker is meant to sound like an emg (as is the warpig), but they're passive, and i think they're meant to be better

How do the Swineshead Xbucker and Warthog compare to each other?

well, i haven't tried the xbucker, but from what i've heard, think emg 81

the warthog is more like kind of a cross between a dimarzio tone zone and paf pro (more like a tone zone, though- think a tone zone that's not as muddy, and which has better clarity- and maybe not just as much bass)
