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.
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

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.
