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.
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
The English Mount is a replacement option for standard humbucker sized pickups or Filter'Tron style pickups that suspend from a ring. This pickup comes with 2 mounting screws and 2 springs. You will need to attach and suspend this pickup from one of our EM rings, as the opening of a humbucker ring is much larger.
This pickup is shipped with standard 2-conductor wire.
Filter'Tron Replacement: The English Mount is NOT a direct drop-in replacement for Vintage Filter'trons, HS Filter'trons, Fideli'trons, Mega'trons, Full-trons or any other standard sized 'Trons. You will need the Universal or No Ears Mount.
Blacktop Filter'Tron Replacement: You will need the Universal or English Mount and one Dual Screw Mount Adapter per pickup to mount into the stock rings.
Post-2012 Electromatics: You will need the Universal or English Mount with one Dual Screw Mount Adapter per pickup. This is necessary to mount the pickup into your stock ring.
Streamliners: These guitars are made with "Gibson-style" rings instead of standard Gretsch rings. You will want to choose the Universal or English Mount with either our EM1 Ring, EM2 Ring, or EM5 Ring to replace the stock ring when installing a Universal or English Mount Pickup (this depends on which style you prefer). If you choose either the EM2 or EM5 Gretsch-style Rings you will also want a pack of Ring Risers (due to the neck angle).
Gretsch 5120/5122: You will need the Universal or English Mount along with an EM2 Ring or EM5 Ring and Ring Risers. Risers are recommended because the neck angle on these guitars tend to be high. You can find those in our Hardware section.
Gretsch 5420/5422 - early models: You will need the Universal or English Mount. If your guitar came stock with the large metal rings you will not be able to replace them with the smaller Gretsch rings because the footprint is too large. You will need one of our Dual Screw Mount Adapters for each pickup to attach the pickup to your stock ring.
Pre-2012 Pro Jets: These will require some specific modification in order to install No Ears Mount pickups. You can refer to our Pro Jet Resource Page which is in the Resources section.
