The sound of a great vintage Tele bridge pickup - if you can find one - is almost magical. It blends elements that shouldn't be able to coexist: sizzle and warmth, sharp attack, and smooth sustain. In other words, it has depth. Single notes have weight and presence, and chords have detail and dimension. This was the goal for the True Velvet T Bridge. Controlled-tension coil winding, custom wire and hand-calibrated magnets give the True Velvet The real vintage sound, and double wax potting ensures that it's squeal-free.
Recommended For: Standard Tele bridge position.
Like the Twang King Bridge model, the sonic goal was to combine the best tonal qualities of several Broadcaster and Telecaster pickups from the '50's and early '60's. The difference is the size of the sound. The True Velvet T Bridge is bigger, and there's greater dynamic range, from soft to loud.

Comments about DiMarzio DP178 True Velvet T Bridge Pickup:
I built a partscaster and wanted a great sounding bridge pickup. A friend of mine has True Velvets in one of his Teles and he was getting a fantastic sound out of them. I'm not as good as he is, so I wasn't expecting it to sound like his playing. Once I put it together, WOW! It has the growl, the twang, the bite, the sweetness... pretty much anything I want. It works with OD pedals nicely. I love it. Every time I play it, I'm grinning from ear to ear. The price is fantastic too. I can't imagine a boutique pickup sounding any better than the True Velvet. HIGHLY recommended!!!!
