Power'Tron Neck DeArmond Mount

1 item left

  • Power'tron - neck - Dearmond 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.

    Installation:

    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.


  • 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

    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

    Dynasonic/DeArmond Replacement:The DeArmond Mount is a direct drop in replacement for Vintage DeArmonds, Dynasonics, and most other DeArmond 2000 style pickups.

    Filter'tron Replacement: Replacing Filter’Tron-style pickups with DeArmond Mount pickups is not optimal.

    Mounting Screws DeArmond Mounting screws are sold seperately because most people use the ones already on their guitar. If you need new or extra screws, you can find them in our products section.
