DynaSonic, DeArmond, T-Armond pickups were not on my radar, as a guitarist, for decades. It wasn't until I bought my Cabronita Thinline (with Fideli'tron pickups) that I had even played what many would consider to be "Gretsch-type" pickups. Once I realized how great the pickups in various Gretsch guitars are, I decided to try the TV Jones version of the DeArmond pickups: T-Armonds. For anyone who might be looking around for rich, very full-bodied, glorious single-coil tones... may I suggest considering T-Armonds? I have two guitars which previously housed PAF-style humbucker pickups, which I found to be less detailed, less articulate, less clear, and less sparkly than I preferred. I decided to try T-Armond pickups in them and I am blown away by how great these pickups sound. While this pickup design is not commonly found in Fender, Gibson, D'Angelico, Epiphone, et al guitars, they are most certainly fabulous sounding in all of these guitars. If you're looking for some new pickups to try, for a fat, full, rich, and sparkly single-coil tone, I heartily recommend giving them a try. TV Jones makes them in a wide variety of formats, so you should be able to find a format that will work in almost any guitar. ES-Les Paul (T-Armonds with Universal Mount) D'Angelico Excel EX-SS (T-Armonds with universal mount) Having been so impressed by the tone of these pickups, I also added a TV Jones T-Armond, this time in soapbar-form factor, to the neck position in this Gibson Les Paul Special, which to my taste was a nice improvement over the original P90. I have plans to add T-Armonds to one more of my guitars, this time... to a Tele!
