Clean lows and highs with unequalled response to pick attack.
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.
