The TP Set
|Now Telecaster® players can obtain a more tonally balanced usable neck pickup, replacing their darker sounding OEM pickup.
The TP set uses slightly taller Alnico 5 grade magnets and wound to 9.0K ohms, gives this pickup it's fuller, brighter musical tone. When coupled with the matching Bridge pickup, it's capable of canceling 60-cycle hum in the middle (both) switch position due to the Reverse Wound Reverse Polarity construction.
The Bridge pickup uses taller, raised flush, Alnico 5 grade magnets along with Vintage Formvar Magnetic Wire wound to a 9.0K ohm resistance value. This still retains the Tele® properties but gives you more power. Coupled with a copper-clad steel base plate, it produces a fatter, punchier tone. It also eliminates the excessive ear-piercing trebles inherent with most Tele® Bridge Pickups.
All Amalfitano Pickup Tele® replacement sets are assembled using vintage color-coded cloth covered wire leads and are lightly wax potted to reduce the chance of microphonics.
Bridge : 42 gauge Formvar magnetic wire with Alnico 5 magnets
Neck: 43 gauge wire around Alnico 5 magnets
