1 BorderRadio 2 months ago The NEW DeArmond brand Dynas are out! The DeArmond brand is owned by Cordoba, these new pickups are made in Korea, aka “BHK”, which makes many kinds of pickups for lots of import brands. Close inspection suggest these are made in the same way as the MIA DeArmond 2000s that were installed in Electromatics in the early to mid Oughties. I bought a set for my Streamliner, ripping out the neck T-Armond and replacing the much loved vintage Model 2000T I soldCan’t go wrong, right? :)The casing/mount is stamped like the vintage models, but a squarer die appears to have been used. Not as rounded as TVJs or the vintage casing. The bobbins are held in by a soldered base plate, the riser screws are soldered in as well—I’ve been told these are very difficult to pull apart. I’m not determined to do it just yet, especially since this design seems pretty much similar to the DA 2000s. Lots of wax potting, hoping I can get some of that extra wax out/or they are light dipped since I rather keep these pickups on the microphonic side.Neck resistance: 7.5k, Neck inductance: ~3.9HBridge resistance: 8.8k Bridge inductance: ~5HThese are going into new Guild Starfire IIs, and more models, presumably. Nothing about them on the website yet. I have high hopes for these pickups based on the numbers.
