The Power’Tron was born out of our desire to create a pickup that has the character of a PAF-style humbucker yet retains the essence of a Filter’Tron. Larger bobbins, standard HB sized wire, and more windings create a badder, gnarlier older brother to the TV Classic (and TV Classic Plus).
Mixing the vintage tone of a golden-age PAF with the rockabilly twang of a late-'50s Filter'Tron. Full body and a clear top end that is naturally dynamic. Digging in reveals a chunky low-end breakup paired with a barky top-end grit that sounds amazing through a tube amp. This is a great choice if you like the overall Filter’Tron sound but want more guts and glory than usually provided by lower output pickups.
The Humbucker Mount is a direct drop-in replacement for any standard sized humbuckers. This pickup ships with mounting screws and springs for adjustment. To learn more about the Humbucker Mount, check out the Tech Specs tab.
DC Resistance is not entirely an indicator of true pickup output, although it can be helpful.
Bridge: DCR - 7.8k / Inductance - 4.75H
Neck: DCR - 5.0k / Inductance - 2.24H
This pickup is shipped with 4-conductor wire but is ready for standard 2-conductor connection. The extra red and green wires come soldered together and taped off - to split coils, send these to ground.
Splitting coils works well with the Power’tron because of its naturally higher output. 4-Conductor wire is also convenient for custom switching i.e. pickups combined in series or parallel.
