Candid Review of new Blacktop Filtertrons - Gretsch-Talk …

Please realize all I have owned were Prolines with TV Classics and HS Filters alnico. My thoughts are that these pickups are some seriously great pickups. Honestly given a regular decent amp these things are no entry level pickup and can hold there own with any pro pickup.They are very classic Filtertron and they are ballsy and loud.

Black Top Filtertrons Vs HS Filtertrons | Gretsch-Talk Forum

What I found - The Black tops had a bright top end but the mid range and bottom end was not as full or warm as the HS filtertrons. I think the HS have a more complex mid range. I'm curious as to what others think of these two pickups. Anyway I'm going to order a set of the HS Filtertrons to put in my left-handed 5420.

Are P90's interchangeable with Filtertrons? | The Gear Page

Drew816. No, filters and 90's as mentioned above are a different size; contact TV and he'll give you the options. That being said, depending on the guitar with a little creativitiy you can get a 90 in a Filter slot. I moded a baseplate for a P-90, setup it up to with little notches on the sides, wired it up and then you'd put the baseplate in ...

Gretsch Pickups. Broadtron or Filtertron? - Telecaster …

I predict the BT Broadtrons have the same short magnet in a Blacktop filtertron, and same small screws, but wound hotter. The Proline Broadtrons have a Filter-like metal cover and HS Filtertron screws. Just another guess but I bet they have tall Filtertron bar magnets and likely mimic a TV Jones Powertron Plus. Not sure of the latter two, but I ...

Black Top Filtertrons | Gretsch-Talk Forum

5,182. New Jersey. Jan 23, 2013. #12. The new Black Top FilterTrons don't impress me. They don't have that growl I like, in fact, they sound more like Dynasonics. The older ceramic FilterTrons are it, as far as I'm concerned, which is weird, because I can't stand Gibson ceramic humbuckers, which are too harsh.

Le guide des micros Filter'Tron | Actualités Reverb

L'aimant étant plus éloigné des cordes qu'avec des humbucker classiques (en raison d'une bobine plus haute), les Filter'Tron offrent le meilleur d'eux-mêmes lorsqu'ils sont réglés au plus près des cordes. TV Jones recommande de placer le micro manche à 4,7 mm des cordes et les micros chevalet à 3,9 mm des cordes.

Gretsch Pickups. Broadtron or Filtertron? - Telecaster …

Location. DELCO, PA. I'm looking at a G5220 BT as one of several possibilities for my next purchase and was wondering about the Broadtron pickups it comes with. I play classic rock/Blues so the hotter BT's seem like the better choice but I haven't had a chance to play the 5220 yet. I was at GC today and played a used G5230T with the Filtertrons ...

Detailed view of FilterTron Black Top | Gretsch-Talk Forum

Soundwise, that blacktop makes my '70 Viking sound like my '09 Country Gentleman. I don't have the feeling there is much difference between the two (vintage blacktop vs. modern HS). What differences I -could- hear were more related to the differences in bracing (parallel tonebars vs waffle bracing on the Gent) and bridges (space control vs TI ...

filter'trons vs broad'trons | The Gear Page

354. Oct 13, 2018. #2. I have a Gretsch G2655 with BroadTron PUPs. I haven't played FilterTrons, but I absolutely love the sound of my Gretsch. It is a humbucker, but has a unique character to it. A bit of bite or growl. To my ear and for my needs, they are the best humbuckers I've tried. Playing though an AC15.

someone want to explain "filtertron" pickups to me?

Filtertrons are Gretsch's own humbuckers, designed by Ray Butts for Chet Atkins. The patent on them was granted later, but the prototypes seem to predate Gibson's humbuckers. Typically, they're fairly low output, around 4 to 5K, and brighter than a PAF type humbucker, much thinner than a typical fat Gibson humbucker.

Filter'Tron Pickups: The Ultimate Guide – Tone Topics

The ring mount is designed to house the Filtertron pickup and slot into your guitar's pickup cavity. For example, if your guitar originally housed a P90 or PAF Humbucker, you will need to purchase the correct ring mount to slot into the pickup cavity and accommodate the Filtertron. If your guitar has single-coil pickups, skip to option number 3.

Need help with Gretsch Blacktop Filtertrons - Telecaster …

Oct 11, 2009. Location: Hogtown. Nope, haven't fiddled with the heights, but will try: the guitar has been given a pro setup set up and the heights look to be in the right ball park, but a little tweaking won't hurt. I used to own the 3-pickup electromatic, center-block version of this guitar. It had Hilotrons in it.

Blacktop Filtertron Adjustment | Gretsch-Talk Forum

Neck Pickup 3/16-7/32 on bass side and 3/16 on treble side. Bridge Pickup 5/32 on both bass and treble sides. They also mention that these are a good starting point and that adjustments may be different due to string gauge, playing style or amplification. Works for me and I didn't touch the pole heights.

The hook-up wire was simply clipped to the pickup. Filter'Trons also use a magnet that is nearly twice as large as a traditional PAF magnet. The bobbins are also taller than PAF bobbins, which contributes to brighter tone. …

Blacktop Filtertrons vs ? | Gretsch-Talk Forum

The HS FT, the BT FT, the DC SHT are the same building quality. The HS FT = High Sensivity FilterTron, is the classic FilterTron that you find on most Pro Line Gretsch. The BT FT = Black Top FilterTron, is a slightly more "PAF-Gibson-ey" version of the HS FT, but still retaining the Gretsch character.

Blacktop Filtertron pickup/polepiece height? | Gretsch-Talk …

Electromatic. Dec 4, 2014. 64. Middle of WV. Feb 18, 2015. #1. The Blacktop Filtertrons are a nice "Gretschy" sounding pickup. What are you all finding works well for pickup/polepiece height?

Magnet mod with BlackTop FilterTrons--Closer to nirvana!!

FilterTron. He was out of stock, of course! So, I decided to use the 2nd 1/8 Alnico V from my Streamliner BroadTron pups (gathering dust) and stack them with the existing magnet in Blacktop to "make" a 1/4 inch Alnico V. Stacking the magnets was not that difficult. The hardest part was getting the pup cover separated from the baseplate of the ...

Any experience or opinions on Gretsch Blacktop ... - The …

Clear, a lot less muddy than "regular" humbuckers IMHO, great note definition, even when overdriven. I love them! Note that Filtertrons are slightly narrower than humbuckers or Blacktp Broadtrons, so you'll need different mounting rings. TV Jones (and others) sell them. $60 is a great price for the pair. I say go for it!
