Vintage Twang Meets Modern Tones
The TV Jones Magna’Tron blends single-coil twang with a Filter'tron. This special tone is the result of staggered alnico cylinder magnets. The tone is quite aggressive with a quick attack and exceptional pop and clarity. With two coils there is a hint of compression on the high end and no 60-cycle hum.
Bridge: Features two extra-tall coils with wider pole-to-pole spacing to provide a good balance of output and clarity.
DC Resistance: 8.0K | Inductance: 2.29H
Neck: Similar coils with less magnet wire result in a sweeter and clearer tone.
DC Resistance: 4.8K | Inductance: 1.24H
Very dynamic with tight, clear bass response. Bright and sensitive with less inductance. Similar to single coil tone.
Note: Shipped with 4 conductor wiring – ready for standard 2 conductor hook-up. Red and green wires are soldered and taped off for standard wiring - send red and green wires to ground for splitting coils. Splitting coils is not recommended for the Magna'tron due to lower coil power (but will work). However, it is convenient for custom switching. Example: where coils from other pickups are combined in series, or parallel.
