well im getting ready to change my pickups.. and head that the dimarzio x2n has a pretty sweet sound, the only knowing artist that used that pickup is chuck schuldiner from death and what a i could hear is just awesome... well that my question, what do you guys think about that the dimarzio x2n and if that pickup would be good for metal?
At the risk of sounding trite, what's your amp? Amp > pickups when it comes to tone.
well i have a create amp.. and sometimes i use a Digitech metal master
Once again at the risk of sounding trite, you should invest in a new amp. It will do wonders for your tone. If you're dead-set on the pickup though, at least try a guitar with one through your current setup to see what it's like.
I have one in an Les Paul knock-off. It is great for shred/lead metal, but is way to bright/trebly for rhythm IMO.
I would also suggest investing in a better amp.
New amp, please.
