OVERVIEW

Captures the best elements of historic guitars and delivers unequalled response to pick attack.

The DiMarzio DP173 Twang King Tele Bridge 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 bridge model has a ferrous base plate and is wax-potted twice for squeal-free performance.

Recommended For: Standard Tele bridge position
DiMarzio didn't model the Twang King bridge after a specific original. Instead, they combined the best tonal qualities of several Broadcaster and Telecaster pickups from the '50s and early '60s. They were aiming for a balance between big, clean lows and fatter-sounding 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.
