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. Tom designed our T-Armond set after Brian Setzer's '56 Silver Jet that was used on his Dirty Boogie album. That guitar spent many hours on Tom's workbench over the years. Now you can get this amazing tone with any Gretsch Guitar routed for a standard original Filter'Tron.
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
