Players have long-sought an option for the DeArmond/T-Armond without modification. TV Jones now provides the only real solution with the T-Series™.
Following years of development, the all new T-Series™ features one of our most popular pickups in a revolutionary housing.
For those of you who have always wanted that twangy DeArmond/T-Armond (Dynasonic) tone in a Fender-style, Gibson-style, or Filter’tron-equipped Gretsch guitar, TV Jones Inc. is proud to offer our T-Series - it's T-Armond™ in a Filter’tron housing.
This proprietary option features a metal pickup cover in the footprint of a Filter’tron (yet maintaining the sharper radius of the T-Armond around the top edge).
The TV Jones T-Armond uses larger alnico cylinder magnets and very thin magnet wire. The coils are short and squatty – similar to a P-90 pickup coil. The result is a full-bodied harmonic tone. The adjustable cylinder magnets enable each string to be dialed in for perfect string-to-string balance. Tom designed the T-Armond set after Brian Setzer's Silver Jet used on his Dirty Boogie CD. This guitar spent many hours on Tom's workbench over the years.
The T-Series™ - available in standard NE Filter’tron (with wood screws), and our suspended English Mount.
Please note – this pickups is ex-demo and has been used in our demonstrator Gretsch 5420. Comes complete with full length cables, box, wiring diagrams, screws and 12 months warranty.
