Pickups

DeArmond Tone Boss vs Gretsch Deltoluxe?

1

Are these pretty much the same pickup with different cosmetics? The price point is the same. And they sound similar-ish, in different applications, on the YouTubes.

Any first-hand experience out there?

Edit: They really don't sound THAT alike . . .

looks like they have totally different construction

Yeah, upon further research, the Tone Boss is a humbucker; and the Deltoluxe looks to be a single coil, supposedly based on the Rhythm Chief 1000. That makes things a little more interesting.
