This bigger, badder, older sibling to the TV Classic is a bridge position only pickup that packs a mighty punch. Using thinner gauge wire, it saturates quicker with punchy mids but keeps that "classic" Filter'Tron vibe.
Like a TV Classic but with more attitude, the TV Classic Plus is wound with thinner gauge wire providing slightly rounder top-end and touch of more output. Many players wish for a Filter'Tron that has "more"to it's sound...this pickup fills that need very well. Installing the TV Classic Plus with a Super'Tron paves the way for some serious Chet Atkins glory (check out his '59 Country Gentleman) but is also a wonderful combination that brings out some of the best sounds in our line (and secretly one of TV's favorite combinations).
DC Resistance is not entirely an indicator of true pickup output, although it can be helpful.
Bridge (only): DCR - 7.8k / Inductance - 2.83H
The DeArmond Mount is a direct drop-in replacement for guitars with standard sized Dynasonic/DeArmond 2000 style pickups. This pickup comes with two pieces of foam shims for height adjustment. DeArmond Mounting Screws are sold separately if necessary.
This pickup is shipped with 4-conductor wire but is ready for standard 2-conductor connection. The extra red and green wires come soldered together and taped off - to split coils, send these to ground.
Splitting coils works well with the TV Classic Plus due to higher coil strength. Additionally, the 4-Conductor wire is convenient for custom switching i.e. pickups combined in series or parallel.
Dynasonic/DeArmond Replacement: The DeArmond Mount is a direct drop in replacement for guitars with Vintage DeArmonds, Dynasonics, and most other DeArmond 2000 style pickups.
Gretsch G6128TDS 2020 and newer: The pickups in this guitar are not the same size (height) as Vintage DeArmonds or older DynaSonics. TV Jones T-Armond pickups will not fit this guitar.
Filter'Tron Replacement: Replacing Filter'Tron-style pickups with DeArmond Mount pickups is not optimal.
Mounting Screws: DeArmond Mounting screws are sold seperately because most people use the ones already on their guitar. If you need new or extra screws, you can find Dearmond Mount screws in our hardware section.
TV Jones handcrafts your pickup at the time of order. Generally orders ship within seven to ten business days.
If you require expedited service, please let us know in the notes when you order and we will do our best to accomodate your situation.
