Single Coil Tone with Warmth and Bite
Clanky, single coil tone with a hint of natural midrange. When the bridge and neck pickups are on at the same time, 60-cycle hum is eliminated. In this mode they are 2 single coil pickups wired in parallel. The TV-HT is designed to produce twangy bass and crisp highs.
Note: The TV-HT is not a top-mounted pickup and may not fit on some vintage Gretsch Guitars. However, this vintage version is available through special order.
Bridge: We improved on the vintage Hilo'Tron™ single coil pickup by widening the pole-to-pole spacing and increasing the output of the bridge position.
DC Resistance: 4.3K | Inductance: 2.49H
