Wow! I'm the same age as DeArmonds!
400 pounds sterling eh?
I wonder how the different magnets affect the neck 180 degree flip mod.
"and we use different grades of Alnico depending on what strings are being picked up."
"When you back off the volume on Dynasonics using a treble bleed, they can sound great"
This can certainly improve the excessive mids that come with TArmonds. I found a 1 meg master volume to be more effective.
I wish they still made this (DeArmond M75T). To me, it was a poor-man's Gretsch Duo Jet.
But it weighs like 100 pounds!
Now you lost me.
My historic series G3140, made in Korea in early 2000's also have pups named the same. But I can hardly imagine they're that old (speaking of the model design, obviously).
Are they the same? Or a different and more recent model with apparently the same name?
The latter. As the link above shows there are three different pickups: the original DeArmond 2000 which Gretsch called the Dyna Sonic; the 2K used on DeArmond branded guitars made in the late 90s and the new 2000 used in Gretsch guitars in the Historic series and 5124-29 guitars
People still like DeArmonds today. Age has little to do with many things.
Tell that to my arthritis.
You’ve got me there. I guess the DeArmond has an advantage when aging.
Got it, crystal clear.
Thanks to both of you @Uncle Daddy and @drmilktruck
This website is a treasure trove of information on all vintage DeArmond products, pickups and beyond.
Are TV Jones T-Armonds well-received/enjoyed by folks here?
I wonder how they might differ in tone from Hilo'trons/TV-HTs?
Hilotrons are like a thinner Filtertron. Dynas are like a bright P90.
Thanks Uncle Daddy.
Is the Gretsch Dynasonic pickup essentially the same as the Dearmond, T-Armond?
For those who've heard them:
Would TV-HT and Magna'tron be better choices than T-Armond, for someone wanting full-range, bright highs, sparkly, clean tones?
Yes, a brilliant website. Does anyone know if they were fitted to a Falcon? I had a vague memory that they were fitted to an early model.
