A single-coil pickup that is dynamic, articulate. and responsive.

It is extremely dynamic and has unparalleled response to pick attack. With the True Velvet the low strings are as big and clean and the highs are smoother, with an overall attack that is stronger. This combination of qualities allows the True Velvet T guitar pickup to sound both pretty and tough.

  • Great replacement for OEM hardware

    As reviewed by Jeremy Ross on 4/22/2014

    I was a little skeptical replacing my neck pickup with one other that the one that came with the guitar, for a fear of changing the tone of the guitar and losing that very nice Tele sound. My original neck pickup got very noisey. I replaced this and matched the wiring colour coding and found the pickups were out of phase (the sound when the switch is set to the middle completely dragged the sound down)a quick phone call to DiMarzio remedied the situation, by just switching the wires around and put the new pickup in phase with the bridge. It sounds awesome, no more noise and the neck sound rounder deeper on the top E,A,D strings and brighter on the higher strings G,B,E. The overall sound of the guitar is much clearer and cleaner. This is one of those upgrades that improved my guitars sound. Definitely recommend this pickup.

  • Amazing Pickup

    As reviewed by Rob on 11/5/2009

    Outstanding! Talk about tone... this is the beefiest pickup i think i've ever used. I would highly recommend this to anyone. It maintains the classic tele twang and injects a monster dose of output and a shot of low end while remaining super clear with no mud or tin. Sounds great with heavy distortion but i think this thing really shines with a clean or slightly overdriven tone (think Devin Townsend's "Ki" album)

  • Greaat Sound

    As reviewed by JOSE LUIS GONZALEZ JIMENEZ on 11/6/2011

    With a nice broadcaster alike sound id recomend this pickup for a real full bodied telecaster sound, like i say better sound than others boutique pickups i bought for a way less money,(just one more thing, guitarcenter only offers in unfinished look ),if you really want a cool set buy the full telecaster set.
