OVERVIEW

The DiMarzio DP172 Twang King Tele Neck Pickup captures the best elements of Broadcaster and Telecaster 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.

Recommended For: Standard Tele neck position
DiMarzio didn't model the Twang King neck pickup after a specific original. They were aiming for big, clean lows and highs, and wanted the pickup to be able to handle a very wide dynamic range, so the sound would clean up with soft picking and really open up with a harder attack.

Clean lows and highs with unequalled response to pick attack.

FEATURES
  • Replaces traditional tele neck pickups
  • Handles a wide dynamic range
  • Unequalled response to pick attack

    Comments about DiMarzio DP172 Twang King Tele Neck Pickup:

    I was looking for a good mate to a Dimarzio Pre-B1 bridge pickup that I had for quite a while. I did not like it(Pre B-1) in my ash Tele, but sounded great in my pine caster project. Based on some other reviews and it's reasonable price, I purchased it. Sounds nice and clear to me without a muddy or ice pick tone. I am glad that I made that choice and am very happy with it without having to break the bank.

    Finally, a Clear Tele Neck P/U

    Comments about DiMarzio DP172 Twang King Tele Neck Pickup:

    I have been playing Teles for years and I have always struggled with the muddy neck tone. The Twang King is great. Very snappy clear highs. It sounds great clean and with overdrive. It is a true single coil, so it is not noise canceling. You will get hum, but there is no microphonic squeal. Listen to the tone of player such as Ritchie Kotzen. Finally great tone from a tele neck pickup!
