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.


    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.

G5622T Upgrade

This was part of a 2017 G5622T Upgrade TV Classic(neck pup)paired with a T-Armond (bridge pup) and the Tone pot wiring harness.
Install was clean and the "Tone" results are unbelievable !!

Superb quality and customer service!!

Such a great set of pickups, and the TV Jones staff is very friendly and helpful.

Blacktop Upgrade

I bought a set of these for my 5420 hoping to get it to sound more Gretsch-like. These definitely did the trick. The bridge has bite but punch too. The in-between position now sounds like a Gretsch and doesn't turn to mud when adding OD. The neck is simply perfect. It may be my favorite neck pup of all time. I can't think of a better set of pups to put in a Gretsch.

T-Armond Neck Pickup

I have mounted this into a 1996 Gretsch Duojet 6128 in the neck position. I previously installed aT V Jones Filtertron Classic in the Bridge position. Now the guitar has a new life. The stock ceramic filtertrons were decent but I wanted more definition and clarity than they were giving. Once the bridge pickup was installed I was amazed at the difference. Exactly what I was looking for. I wasnt sure about the neck if I wanted to follow suit with the classic Filtertron or something different. I wanted the guitar to be a little more versatile so I took a chance on the TxArmond in hopes that the two would play nice together. Boy am I happy I did. First of all the T series neck pickup is beautiful. No more mud in the clean sounds and lovely tone. Sounds awesome with some dirt as well. The best surprise was the middle position sounds. Awesome tone and I am using the middle position so much more now. Overall, I am super happy with this combination of picks and with the upgrade overall. Bravo TV Jones.
My only suggestion to you would be to post a YouTube video with these two pickups in a guitar. I am sure it would become a popular combination if more people knew how it sounds.

Always great pickups

T-Armond pickups produce great tone and response. They are a great tribute to the classic pickups they emulate.
