D Activator-X™ Bridge

DP222

For nearly 30 years, the DiMarzio® X2N® has been the top choice for all-out power. In the last couple of years, we've developed totally new ways to combine power with clarity, which first resulted in the D Activator™. Now we bring you the D Activator-X™ Bridge model. It features the same striking look as the X2N®, but we've adjusted the output and tuned the coils to different frequencies to create a powerful sound wide open with a surprisingly clean sound when the volume control is rolled down, even with extreme metal and high-gain amps. The Neck model is designed to produce a highly focussed attack centered on the upper mid range, with less magnet pull and output in order to balance perfectly with the Bridge model. The D Activator-X™ Bridge model feature universal spacing for both standard and F-spaced applications.

Tech Talk

The D Activator-X™ bridge model uses the same bar pole pieces and magnet structure as the X2N®, but it's a very different pickup in other ways. Output voltage is slightly lower than the X2N®, and the tuning of the two coils allows the high frequencies to “open up” while still maintaining very strong lows and mids. The D Activator-X™ is also very good for clean, bright sounds in split and parallel modes.
