Overview

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.
