TV Jones Pickup - Power'Tron with Soapbar Mount (P90) - Powertron

€125.00

TV Power'Tron With Soapbar (P90) Mount



The Power’Tron was born out of TV Jones desire to create a pickup with a stronger midrange presence and higher output than the TV Classic. 

Bridge: Two extra-tall bobbins allow for more winds of standard-gauge magnet wire. Single treble notes are reproduced with a fuller tone, while bass notes twang out deep and clear. Overall, the tone is remarkably close to a 1950’s PAF Humbucker, blended with the zing and twang of a Filter’Tron™. 

Neck: Standard bobbins over-wound with standard-gauge magnet wire. The resulting tone is slightly darker and hotter than a TV Classic neck.


Characteristic/Tone: 
TV Classic on steroids Overall slightly darker - punchy mids and clean treble Gibson-like with Filter’Tron™ overtones. If purchased with four conductor wiring the coils can be split or wired in parallel - NOTE: please ask if you need 4 conductor wiring


Likeness/Derived from: 
1950’s Gibson Humbucker Fatter than the TV Classic Plus
