Magna’Tron

Shown in English Mount with Dogear ring

Modern Twang for the 21st Century

The TV Jones Magna’Tron blends DeArmond-style twang and single coil spank. This special tone is the result of staggered cylinder magnets. The tone is quite aggressive with a quick attack and with exceptional pop and clarity. With two coils there is a hint of compression on the high end and no 60-cycle hum.

Here is a great example of how the Magna’Trons sound in a Gretsch 6120 – compared to stock Gretsch Filter’trons:

Bridge: Features two extra-tall coils with wider pole-to-pole spacing - provides a good balance of output and clarity.
DC Resistance: 8.0K | Inductance: 2.9H

Neck: Smaller coils with less magnet wire result in a sweeter and clearer tone.
DC Resistance: 4.2K | Inductance: 1.02H

TONE / Characteristic:

Bright and sensitive with less inductance. Tight, clear bass response with dynamics. Similar to single coil tone

BEST FOR:
