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.

Rickenbacker move over!

I have a great Les Paul 12 string that I wanted to sound a little more like a "Rick" so I asked TV Jones to help with just the right pickup. These are GREAT and sound better than a Rick in my opinion plus I did not have to sell my vehicle to purchase an original Rickenbacker. Very easy swap into a vintage Gibbo, clear instructions and wiring diagram. Awesome customer service! Great job TV Jones!

T-Armond Bridge PUP in a Fender Powercaster

I recently purchased a Fender Powercaster guitar, which was equipped with a Humbucker in the bridge and a P90 in the neck. It was always my intent to change the pickups, and tried a couple of different P90's in the bridge position. My favorite is the T-Armond, which has a great clean bite, and matches up well with the P90 neck. The adjustable pole pieces allow detailed string balance, and it looks darn cool too!

T-Armonds on a reissue Guilt T-Bird S-200

The MIK T-Bird is a cool guitar though it did require some work. Fine by me, I bought the guitar as a platform for upgrades. I had the frets redone, a String Butler installed, the entire electronics replaced including wiring, pots, caps and both pickups. The T-Armonds keep the tonal character of the guitar intact and add clarity, sparkle, a deep low end and fairy dust on top.
That's a big investment on a relatively inexpensive guitar, but the final results justifies it! In my opinion the T-Armonds are the best possible pickups for this guitar.
