Single Coil Tone with Warmth and Bite
Clanky, single coil tone with a hint of natural midrange due to the added internal steel. Our single-coil pickups are designed to eliminate 60-cycle hum when both pickups are on at the same time. The TV-HT is designed to produce twangy bass and crisp highs.
Note: The TV-HT is not a top-mounted pickup and will not fit vintage Gretsch Guitars with Hilo'Tron pickups. However, a vintage version (without Filter'tron backplates) is available through special order.
Bridge: We improved on the vintage Hilo'Tron single coil pickup by widening the pole-to-pole spacing and increasing the output of the bridge position.
DC Resistance: 4.3K | Inductance: 1.85H
Neck: A tonal replica of a vintage 1960's Hilo'Tron pickup.
DC Resistance: 3.4K | Inductance: 1.22H
Twangy and clanky with tight, clear bass notes. Perfect for 60s music, or amazing with gain.
