TV Classic Bridge - DeArmond Mount

  • TV Classic - Bridge - DeArmond Mount

    The pickup that started it all - the TV Classic captures that vintage twang and growl characteristic of the late 1950’s Filter’Tron. Originally designed from an analyzed 1959 “Pat. Applied For” Filter’Tron, the TV Classic is our most popular and most versatile pickup. Popularized and played by many different artists ranging from John Mayer to Brian Setzer.


    Between a typical Fender (bright single-coil) & Gibson (darker & thick humbucker) with a unique growl when you dig in. Clean, compressed treble and mids breath life over a tight and controlled low-end.


    The DeArmond Mount is a direct drop-in replacement for standard sized Dynasonic/DeArmond 2000 style pickups. This pickup comes with two pieces of foam shims for height adjustment. DeArmond Mounting Screws are sold separately if necessary. Please refer to the Tech Specs tab to learn more.

Fantastic pickups and service! I’ll be back!


great sound

Really helped my Penguin!

I have a Gretsch Penguin and the stock rear Dynasonic was too underpowered for playing rock for that guitar. Its great for cords and jazz but if you are going to play rock or do solos high up on the neck, the semi-hollow body sucks up the sustain and it turns into feedback. I tries a compressor with the stock pickup and that didn't work. This pickup solves that problem. I left the front one stock for now because i like the front stock Dynasonic and they sound great together. The buzzing was too much for recording and live and this pickup solved all those problems. Looks great too!


Beautiful pickup and great customer service!

TV Jones Classics

Oh BOY!!! Thank YOU T.V. Jones, best sounding pick-ups ever! No hum, punchy and clear with the typical "Filtertron" smoothness with no harsh overtones. Just pretty is all...
I think T.V. might be in league with the devil, he's got some kinda' voodoo or somethin' goin' on. I'm definitely buying more.
