Our version of the original DeArmond 2000 pickups are more controlled in the high frequencies, taking away earth shattering ice-pickiness while keeping that "off-the-rails" attitude that these pickups are known for. Of course, at lower gain levels they sing with unmatched fidelity and clarity. Tom designed our T-Armond set after Brian Setzer's ‘56 Silver Jet that was used on his Dirty Boogie album. That guitar spent many hours on Tom's workbench over the years.
The T-Armonds are in a league of their own with crystal clear highs, bellowing lows, and a tastefully controlled midrange. They perform really well with and without a lot of gain. Some say they sound like tele pickups on steroids.
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.
DC Resistance is not entirely an indicator of true pickup output, although it can be helpful.
Bridge: DCR - 11.8k / Inductance - 4.56H
Neck: DCR - 7.8k / Inductance - 3.38H
This pickup is shipped with standard 2-conductor wire.
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: If you like the T-Armond sound but want to fit it into a Filter’Tron cavity, take a look at our No Ears and English Mount. Replacing Filter'Tron-style pickups with DeArmond Mount pickups is not optimal.
Mounting Screws: DeArmond Mounting screws are sold separately 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.
Had Dynasonics in a Gretsch white penguin. They didn’t sound very good and were microphonic. These are way better. Sound great, way less noise, etc. Highly recommended.
Sorry I can't do a review at this time as I am still building the guitar that the pickups will be used in. But, on appearance alone I have given you 4 stars.
Question: Can you guys supply mounting screws?

Great pickups. More refined than the stock Gretsch pickups in my Duo Jet, with extra clarity and depth.
My dream has come trye! I got the sound i wanted. Thank you TV JONES!
I used these to replace newer DeArmond 2000 on my Guild X-160 Rockabilly guitar. Guitar came alive with the TV Jones. Very happy with these.
