Twang King single-coil pickups
When DiMarzio decided to go for the vintage Tele® sound, they knew they had to do more than just copy a forty-year-old design. They wanted pickups that captured the best elements of their favorite Broadcaster® and Telecaster® sounds, and then some. The Twang King™ pickups have unequaled 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. This was accomplished with a combination of controlled-tension coil-winding, special wire, and hand-calibrated magnets. Wax-potted twice for squeal-free performance, Twang King pickups produce big, clean lows and highs, yet are 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.
