T-Armond Neck - No Ears Mount

    • T-Armond - Neck - No Ears 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 wood-screw mount in any standard Filter’Tron cavity - if you have a Pro level or Vintage Gretsch then we will send an adaptor that will make this pickup fit with ease.

  • Tone/Characteristics

    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 No Ears Mount is a direct drop-in replacement for any standard size Filter’Tron style pickups that mount directly into wood. This pickup ships with mounting screws and compression foam for adjustment. To learn more about the No Ears Mount, check out the Tech Specs tab.

  • Output/Power

    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

    Wiring Notes

    This pickup is shipped with standard 2-conductor wire.

    Filter'tron Replacement: The No Ears Mount is a direct drop-in replacement for any standard size Filter’Tron-style pickups that mount into the guitar body with wood-screws. This includes vintage and modern pro-level Gretsch guitars, Cabronitas, and more!

    Electromatics & Streamliners: If you have a Gretsch Electromatic or Streamliner Series guitar then you will need the English Mount - not this No Ears mount.

    Pro-level Gretsch Guitars: Please specify if you have a pro-level Gretsch and we will include a small adapter to make it work.

Better than expected!

I bought a set of T Armonds I’m a whim to try in one of my telecasters. After a little tweaking, I find that these are the best pickups for this guitar. They have clear, melodic cleans and can get really snarly when played through an overdriven amp. And they strike the perfect final balance of clear highs without getting harsh. Highly recommended!

Clarity without harshness

I put this and the T-Armond bridge in my Gretsch 6120 to replace the filtertrons that came with it. Already had great pickups in the guitar, but these are definitly the sound I was looking for, character, clarity and just the right amount of Rockabilly bite. Very, very satisfied.

TV T-Armonds

Dropped right into my 2007 Chet Signature G6120 (FilterTrons). Super responsive to touch and to all 3 volume controls . Leave the master volume wide open you can turn down the individual pickup volumes and loose no highs . With both pickups on if you back off either individual volume you get very cool tone selections . With both individual volumes all the way up and backing off on the master volume it cuts back the highs and cleans up the amp very well . Possibly the most responsive pickups to amp combination I’ve ever owned … I own 46 guitars - 6 are Gretsch - I also have a pair of TV Classics in my 2005 Country Club and highly recommend them also . all in all? I'm a very satisfied customer …………….. TV Jones customer service? EXCELLENT
