T-Armond Neck - English Mount

  • T-Armond - Neck - English Mount

    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. This version of the T-Armond with the proprietary T-Series cover makes it easy to suspend in a humbucker or filter’tron cavity.


    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 English Mount is a direct drop-in replacement for any standard size Filter’Tron style pickups that suspend from a ring. It can also fit in most humbucker routes with the addition of our EM (1, 2, 3, or 4) Ring. This pickup ships with mounting screws and springs for adjustment.

    Helpful Notes

    Filter'tron Replacement: The English Mount is a direct drop-in replacement for any standard size Filter’Tron-style pickups that suspend from rings. Blacktop Filter'trons will require one Dual Screw Mount Adapter per pickup in order to attach to their stock rings. When replacing Broad'trons and Gretsch-Buckers, you will need a new EM2 Ring.  

    Post-2012 Electromatics: One Dual Screw Mount Adapter per pickup will be necessary to mount our English Mount pickups to your stock ring.

    Streamliners: These guitars are made with Gibson-style rings instead of standard Gretsch rings. You will want to choose either our EM1 or EM2 Ring to replace these when installing a English Mount Pickup (this depends on which style you prefer). If you choose the EM2 Gretsch Style Ring you will also want a pack of Ring Risers.

    Gretsch 5120/5122: New EM2 Rings and Ring Risers are necessary for this guitar due to it's high neck angle. You can find those in our Products section.

    Humbucker Replacement: To replace standard Humbuckers, pair this English Mount pickup with one of our EM1 (Gibson-style), EM2 (Gretsch), or EM4 (Fender-style) rings.

T-Armonds for my 5120.

I purchased both the neck and bridge T-Armond pickup for my Gretsch 5120. These pickups are very clean and clear even with the amp turned up. I wanted to have a clean rhythm guitar and they are perfect for that. But they do sound very good with a lot of distortion as well. So they are quite versatile. The difference I noticed with these pickups, compared to most, is the dynamic range. They really get loud if you strum hard. A lot of electric guitar pickups sound overly compressed and there’s little volume difference between a hard strum and a soft strum. But with the T-Armonds it’s almost like I’m playing an acoustic; I have a lot of control over the dynamics of my playing. These are very good pickups. I’m very glad I bought them.

T-Armond pick up review.

The pickups were purchased as an upgrade pair for a Gretch Jet solid body.

The service by TV Jones was excellent and the communications on the orders status inspired confidence . The installation was easily accomplished and the contrast between the tone of the neck and bridge pickups easily appreciated.

The Armond pickups are probably some of the finest pickups one can purchase for a truly dynamic tone no matter what kind of music you play.

I highly endorse TV Jones pick ups, as I have guitars with Starwood, and T-Armond pickups,,,,

Worth every penny!!!

Both pickups I purchased sound amazing and quality craftsmanship!!


I installed a set (neck and bridge) of T-Armond pickups recently in a Gretsch 5441T. The blacktop filtertrons were not bad, as such, but I wanted to try a set of single coil in it.
I won't attempt to describe the sounds in much detail as that has been done by many people with more single coil experience than I have. What I will say is that the sound from that guitar now is noticeably fuller or richer in tone, particularly in the higher end. Very balanced across all the strings and responsive to playing style.

All in all I am very happy with these pickups - they transformed a relatively inexpensive guitar into something can't seem to put down.

Thank you TV Jones, great product!

Awesome sound!

I had a nice vintage Les Paul 12 string that had pretty good chime BUT I wanted a little more so I ordered some T-Armond pickups from TV Jones. WOW!! I did not know such a difference could be made in tone and unique sound. Great customer service and wonderful product. I will return for more outstanding pickups!
