Get the tone of Brian Setzer for any guitar
TV Jones Universal Mount makes it easy to finally get this iconic tone in your guitar.
The Brian Setzer Signature pickup is derived from Brian's longtime preference for the TV Jones TV Classic, but is a bit more over-the-top than TV Jones other Filter'Tron creations. It features a proprietary design which employs special-alloy pole screws (with more steel) and mix-matched coils which highlight the response of the magnet. This combination of small tweaks provides a perfect sonic match to the man's persona and musicianship.
Utilizing unique coils and pole pieces, this design provides more clarity while producing some of the punchiest low-mid response in TV Jones line. The classic Setzer sound is slightly overdriven yet clear, with a defined and tight/punchy low end. With slightly higher output than a TV Classic, the Setzer Signature punches through a mix with ease and dexterity.
The Universal Mount is a direct drop-in replacement for standard sized Filter'Trons—with and without "ears" or "clips". This pickup comes with two pieces of compression rubber, 2 mounting (wood) screws, and the Universal Mount Clip Pack which includes everything you will need to mount the pickups to your ring or pickguard.
This pickup is shipped with 4-conductor wire but is ready for standard 2-conductor connection. The extra red and green wires come soldered together and taped off—to split coils, send these to ground.
Splitting coils is generally not recommended for this pickup due to low coil output but some say it works well to their taste. 4-Conductor wire is also convenient for custom switching, such as pickups combined in series or parallel.
Filter'Tron Replacement: The Universal Mount is a direct drop-in replacement for Vintage Filter'Trons, HS Filter'Trons, Fideli'Trons, Mega'Trons, Full-trons and any other standard sized 'Trons.
