Magna'Tron™ Bridge Pickup - Soapbar Mount

The Magna'Tron blends single-coil twang with unique Filter'Tron & DeArmond influence. Although it can sound just like a single-coil, it is built with two coils (humbucking). The dual-coils provide a hint of compression on the high-end and no 60-cycle hum. One part of the recipe that makes the Magna'Tron so special is it's staggered cylinder "Fender-style" magnets.

Tone/Characteristics

Bright and chirpy with quick attack and exceptional pop and clarity. The Magna'Tron delivers a unique mix of single-coil spank meets Filter'Tron style twang with no hum. Slightly brighter and tighter on the bass than the TV Classic.

 

Output/Power

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

Bridge: DCR - 8.0k / Inductance - 2.92H

Neck: DCR - 4.8k / Inductance - 1.24H

Installation:

The Soapbar Mount is a direct drop-in replacement for any guitar with standard size Soapbar-style or P90 pickups. This pickup ships with mounting screws and compression foam for adjustment. 

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 is generally not recommended with the Magna'Tron because of its natural tight and bright sound, however some may enjoy it. 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 guitar with standard size soapbar-style or P90 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.
