Pickups

Deltoluxe?

1

Anyone seen or heard the Gretsch Deltoluxe pickup? It’s a soundhole pickup for acoustics. Supposedly a take on the 60’s DeArmond soundhole pickup.

Saw that; curious, but don't have a guitar to put it on.

I've only seen pictures. It looks good, and is supposed to be a copy of the De Armond 600. I have a couple acoustics that it'd work on. I've always had a soft spot for a flat top with a mag pickup.

If it sounds like the original, that's a great offering! If anyone gets to try one please report...

Cool, and not too spendy.

8

Pretty clean Id like to ear it thru a Vox

Does anybody have an idea of it will work for a 4 string tenor guitar? Can't find specific details on the technique and not familiair with how the DeArmond works. Ready to try it out though.

I don't see any individual pole pieces. Should be fine for a tenor. Center it to be sure. DeArmond made both bar type pickups as well as some with individual pole pieces. Contact mike/piezo types as well.
