TV Classic Plus Bridge Soapbar Mount


  • tv classic plus - bridge - soapbar Mount

    This bigger, badder, older sibling to the TV Classic is a bridge position only pickup that packs a mighty punch. Using thinner gauge wire, it saturates quicker with punchy mids but keeps that “classic” Filter’Tron vibe.

    Tone/Characteristics

    Like a TV Classic but with more attitude, the TV Classic Plus is wound with thinner gauge wire providing slightly rounder top-end and touch of more output. Many players wish for a Filter’Tron that has “more” to it’s sound...this pickup fills that need very well. Installing the TV Classic Plus with a Super’Tron paves the way for some serious Chet Atkins glory (check out his ‘59 Country Gentleman) but is also a wonderful combination that brings out some of the best sounds in our line (and secretly one of TV’s favorite combinations).

    Installation:

    The Soapbar Mount is a direct drop-in replacement for any standard size Soapbar style pickups. This pickup ships with mounting screws and compression foam for adjustment. To learn more about the Soapbar 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 (only): DCR - 7.8k / Inductance - 2.83H

    Wiring Notes

    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 TV Classic Plus due to higher coil strength. Additionally, the 4-Conductor wire is convenient for custom switching i.e. pickups combined in series or parallel.

    Helpful Notes

    Soapbar Replacement:The Soapbar Mount is a direct drop in replacement for any standard size soapbar style pickups. The change in mount does not change the sound of the pickup.

    Dog Ear Replacement:The Soapbar Mount is not a replacement for Dog Ear style pickups. To replace a Dog Ear pickup, pair any of our Universal Mount pickups (English Mount for T-Armond and T-90) paired with our EM3 (Dog Ear style) Ring.

Amazing Sound and Bite

I installed an Emerson Custom harness kit with bleed mod in my Gibson Les Paul. I originally had it paired a TV Jones Super'Tron (neck) and a Gibson P94T (bridge). I found the P94T was very noisy (as expected for a single coil) but I wanted the same growl and bite so the Classic+ was no let down... amazing sound!
