T-Armond Summary

 
The TV Jones T-Armond in the traditional DeArmond mount uses all American-made magnets and an improved design that makes this pickup look and sound much better than a modern DeArmond. With adjustable cylinder magnets, each string can be dialed in for the perfect, sweet DeArmond tone.

The T-Armond has a clear, transparent and balanced tone in the neck position and a thicker sounding bridge version that has wider pole spacing, which places a magnet directly under each string, resulting in optimum string separation and output. Traditional DeArmonds (as well as most pickups) have the same pole spacing at the neck and bridge. All TV Jones bridge pickups are designed with this wider pole spacing and the T-Armond is no exception.

The T-Armond comes with 2-conductor “switchable” wiring to solve any out-of-phase issues, and is available in Chrome, Nickel and Gold cover.

PLEASE NOTE: these pick-ups are sold WITHOUT mounting rings.  If you wish to use these pick-ups with EM-1 (Gibson syle), EM-2 (Gretsch style) or EM-3 (dogear style) mounting rings you will need to purchase these separately.

Outstanding! - David Garrido Robles - 13/11/2013
I was tempted to sell my G6120EC because, although I loved that model and bought it at half price, it lack resonance and the existing bridge Dynasonic pickup only put 75% of the power of the neck p-90 out, no matter what height were adjusted both. I m using gold plating steel strings to prevent corrosion and the sound is even brighter, but the bridge pickup is extremely thin and dull, lifeless sounding for such a quality guitar. I was thinking of selling my axe because of that, was I dissapointed! However I loved playability and p-90 tone and old recordings where Twang s the Thang and I really wanted to go to extremes to make it sound good. So, based on a Duncan Vs TVJones Dynas video series on youtube, being the former very powerful I preferred the last because it sounded more musical and the lower price tag didn t hurt either. And when my bridge pickup was installed... it was night and day compared to the factory Dyna. The question is, the six magnets on the TVJones are only half longer and that -and maybe the magnet type- translates into a much lower string pull-up. This alone makes the strings vibrate in a very much freely and harmonically rich fashion, so the guitar gained a lot of resonance. And, as a plus, the TVJones has so much power output that now I have to readjust height/type of p-90 to balance the volume. So now I ll have to buy shims or rewound the p-90, as it s a Lindy Fralin 10% underwound supposedly. But I m on the right track now, heading to Twangland and
