Product Description

When DiMarzio developed the DP172C Twang King Tele pickup which captures that vintage Tele sound, they used the best elements of their favorite Broadcaster and Tele sounds – and then some. The Twang King pickups have unequalled response to pick attack: light playing produces a soft, quiet tone and hard picking creates a harder, louder, and more dynamic sound than any comparable single-coil. DiMarzio accomplished this with a combination of controlled-tension coil-winding, special wire, and hand-calibrated magnets. The neck pickup comes with a chrome cover and is wax-potted twice for squeal-free performance.

I love a good clean neck pickup

Product Review

I know it sounds like a cliche', but the tones of this pickup are very clear, and dare i say it, very bell like. It has just enough outbut to balance nicely with my Chopper T I have in the bridge of my Fender American Original 50's tele. there isn't a lot to say about it, thats not to say it doesnt do a lot, but the short answer is it does what a really nice Tele neck pickup does, only a little better, a little cleaner, a little clearer, a little louder, and a little better balanced.
