OVERVIEW

Vintage sound made louder with more dynamic range.

The sound of a great vintage Tele bridge pickup - if you can find one - is almost magical. It blends elements that shouldn't be able to coexist: sizzle and warmth, sharp attack, and smooth sustain. In other words, it has depth. Single notes have weight and presence, and chords have detail and dimension. This was the goal for the True Velvet T Bridge. Controlled-tension coil winding, custom wire and hand-calibrated magnets give the True Velvet The real vintage sound, and double wax potting ensures that it's squeal-free.

Recommended For: Standard Tele bridge position.

Like the Twang King Bridge model, the sonic goal was to combine the best tonal qualities of several Broadcaster and Telecaster pickups from the '50's and early '60's. The difference is the size of the sound. The True Velvet T Bridge is bigger, and there's greater dynamic range, from soft to loud.
