POWER'TRON PLUS - BRIDGE - UNIVERSAL MOUNT

When Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top called up and requested an even hotter bridge pickup that could handle his fiery riffs, TV Jones knew they had to take it to the next level. The Power’Tron Plus is the hottest Filter’tron pickup they make and perfect for everything from creamy blues, to hard-rock, to metal. It's a bridge position only pickup that pairs extremely well with Power’tron, T-90, and even T-Armond neck pickups!

TONE/CHARACTERISTICS

Designed with standard PAF magnet wire to resemble a hotter Gibson PAF Humbucker (in the 8.5k DCR range) while retaining the core Filter'Tron characteristics. The lows are tighter and more defined than a traditional Humbucker but it barks and growls generously when digging in. Lastly, it cuts through the mix really well for solos and chunky riffing.

INSTALLATION:

The Universal Mount is a direct drop-in replacement for standard sized Filter'trons - with and without "ears" or “clips”. This pickup comes with two pieces of compression rubber, 2 mounting (wood) screws, and the Universal Mount Clip Pack which includes everything you will need to mount the pickups to your ring or pickguard.

TECH SPECS:

OUTPUT/POWER


DC Resistance is not entirely an indicator of true pickup output, although it can be helpful.

Bridge (only): DCR - 8.5k / Inductance - 5.25H

WIRING NOTES

This pickup is shipped with 4-conductor wire but is ready for standard 2-conductor connection. The extra red and green wires come soldered together and taped off - to split coils, send these to ground.

Splitting coils works extremely well with the Power’tron Plus due to higher coil strength. Additionally, the 4-Conductor wire is convenient for custom switching i.e. pickups combined in series or parallel.

HELPFUL NOTES:

Filter'tron Replacement: The Universal Mount is a direct drop in replacement for Vintage Filter'trons, HS Filter'trons, Fideli'trons, Mega'trons, Full’trons and any other standard sized 'Trons (including old No Ears & English Mount). Blacktop Filter'trons require one Dual Screw Mount Adapter per pickup in order to attach to their stock rings. When replacing Broad'trons and Gretsch-Buckers, you will need a new EM2 Ring.

Post-2012 Electromatics: One Dual Screw Mount Adapter per pickup will be necessary to mount Universal Mount pickups to your stock ring.

Streamliners: These guitars are made with "Gibson-style" rings instead of standard Gretsch rings. You will want to choose either an EM1 or EM2 Ring to replace these when installing a Universal Mount Pickup (this depends on which style you prefer). If you choose the EM2 Gretsch Style Ring you will also want a pack of Ring Risers.

Gretsch 5120/5122: New Rings and Ring Risers are necessary for this guitar due to it's high neck angle.

Pre-2012 Pro Jets: These will require some specific modification in order to install Universal Mount pickups.

Humbucker Replacement: To replace standard Humbuckers, pair this Universal Mount with one of either the EM1 (Gibson-style), EM2 (Gretsch), or EM4 (Fender-style) rings.
