T-Armond Bridge English Mount


  • T-Armond - bridge - English Mount

    Our version of the original DeArmond 2000 pickups are more controlled in the high frequencies, taking away earth shattering ice-pickiness while keeping that "off-the-rails" attitude that these pickups are known for. Of course, at lower gain levels they sing with unmatched fidelity and clarity. This version of the T-Armond with the proprietary T-Series cover makes it easy to suspend in a humbucker or filter’tron cavity.

    Tone/Characteristics

    The T-Armonds are in a league of their own with crystal clear highs, bellowing lows, and a tastefully controlled midrange. They perform really well with and without a lot of gain. Some say they sound like tele pickups on steroids.

    Installation:

    The English Mount is a direct drop-in replacement for any standard size Filter’Tron style pickups that suspend from a ring. It can also replace most humbuckers with the addition of our EM (1, 2, 3, or 4) Ring. This pickup ships with mounting screws and springs for adjustment. To learn more about the English Mount, check out the Tech Specs tab.


  • Output/Power

    DC Resistance is not entirely an indicator of true pickup output, although it can be helpful.

    Bridge: DCR - 11.8k / Inductance - 4.56H

    Neck: DCR - 7.8k / Inductance - 3.38H

    Wiring Notes

    This pickup is shipped with standard 2-conductor wire.

    Helpful Notes

    Filter'tron Replacement: The English Mount is a direct drop-in replacement for any standard size Filter’Tron-style pickups that suspend from rings. Blacktop Filter'trons will require one Dual Screw Mount Adapter per pickup in order to attach to their stock rings. When replacing Broad'trons and Gretsch-Buckers, you will need a new EM2 Ring.  

    Post-2012 Electromatics: One Dual Screw Mount Adapter per pickup will be necessary to mount our English Mount pickups to your stock ring.

    Streamliners: These guitars are made with Gibson-style rings instead of standard Gretsch rings. You will want to choose either our EM1 or EM2 Ring to replace these when installing a English Mount Pickup (this depends on which style you prefer). If you choose the EM2 Gretsch Style Ring you will also want a pack of Ring Risers.

    Gretsch 5120/5122: New EM2 Rings and Ring Risers are necessary for this guitar due to it's high neck angle. You can find those in our Products section.

    Humbucker Replacement: To replace standard Humbuckers, pair this English Mount pickup with one of our EM1 (Gibson-style), EM2 (Gretsch), or EM4 (Fender-style) rings.

Blacktop Upgrade

I bought a set of these for my 5420 hoping to get it to sound more Gretsch-like. These definitely did the trick. The bridge has bite but punch too. The in-between position now sounds like a Gretsch and doesn't turn to mud when adding OD. The neck is simply perfect. It may be my favorite neck pup of all time. I can't think of a better set of pups to put in a Gretsch.

Always great pickups

T-Armond pickups produce great tone and response. They are a great tribute to the classic pickups they emulate.

Perfection

I think that more than any other style of pickup, when you see these you expect a certain classic unique tone. These sonically deliver on that visual promise. To be honest, I was after that tone you get with both pickups together and these are PERFECT! I have been pleasantly surprised on how versatile they are beyond that. I can get enough bite from the neck pickup for a tone I usually go to the bridge for, and yet it rounds off nicely when you roll back the treble. The bridge is nice and twangy when you want it. Both are clear as a bell alone or together, but take a bit of gain nicely. I installed them in a Gretsch Pro Jet. If the one I got hadn't had such a nice neck, I wouldn't have spent money to upgrade it, but did the works to it. The T-Armonds took it over the top! As I said, they are PERFECT
