Power'Tron™ Neck Pickup - Soapbar Mount

The Power'Tron was born out of our desire to create a pickup that has the character of a PAF-style humbucker yet retains the essence of a Filter'Tron. Larger bobbins, standard HB sized wire, and more windings create a badder, gnarlier older brother to the TV Classic (and TV Classic Plus).

Tone/Characteristics

Mixing the vintage tone of a golden-age PAF with the rockabilly twang of a late-'50s Filter'Tron. Full body and a clear top end that is naturally dynamic. Digging in reveals a chunky low-end breakup paired with a barky top-end grit that sounds amazing through a tube amp. This is a great choice if you like the overall Filter'Tron sound but want more guts and glory than usually provided by lower output pickups.

 

Output/Power

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

Bridge: DCR - 7.8k / Inductance - 4.75H

Neck: DCR - 5.0k / Inductance - 2.24H

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. 

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 Power'Tron because of its naturally higher output. 4-Conductor wire is also 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 & T-90) with our EM3 (Dog Ear style) Ring.
