When lord when!?

I wish there was some sort of update about this, or even an update on his website/blog. Last entry is from almost a year ago.

Bet TVs sandbagging till the Lamb show. Got to wow em with new and innovative products!! Oh Boy!!! Even if theyve been known about, done and sitting on a shelf for almost a year!

Everyone knows theyre gonna get released. Hes talked about it for a long long long time.

How bout everybody holds out on their purchase for a full year from the date they are released.

Oh wait, Maybe the big bananas will get butt hurt if they dont get to touch em first and TV will suffer.

I say they should be available for Christmas!

If theyre done let em go!!

Just got an email from Tom. I'd asked whether the ETA for the T-Armond that will drop into a Filter footprint is still January. Here's his response:

"Hopefully. Getting ready to launch a new website, plan the Namm trade show booth, and get the new mounting options ready."

YAYYY!!! I just peed my pants for the 8th time hearing that they are almost ready. Im "Hoping Fully"

What a joke

I've heard talk of a new website before too, an I know it's a small company, and I know he's just one guy. I just want some dang P90s for my RHH! I mean, they look pretty ready to me in this video! Only about a year old....

Dont get me wrong. TVs a suppernice guy, well he was wen I met him in 01, at his house, when I picked up my English Mount Filters/ Hot rod wire config, sat in his kitchen, shot the shit for a while, and found out I just missed Mr. Setzer! That experience kept me pumped for a long time and I was very fortunate to have been involved with that energy but its been 10yrs and its starting to wear off....... a little.

Heres my 01 HotRod. I couldnt afford a Gretsch back then But, I did manage to get my ass wiped on the purchase of a 63 Blonde piggy. 2K. It still hurts....... a little.

Dice knob and dead pot added for daycor this year, says Jerry's Casino. It had a hole there for the longest time.

Wanted to be like Brian, Tom helped.

BEST NEWS EVER!

How about a P90 in a Dyna mount?

Thinking out loud. Might be fun to put in my DeArmond M-75T.

15

I want P90s in a filter mount. Come on TV!! NAAM 2012!! I will try to get you help with the website even!! Ha ha!

16

Cool! I'll start holding my breath now.

Here comes the sun. Do, do, do, doo 8-)8-)8-)

They will be available very soon. some of us installer guys finally got a set.. I installed them on my newish 6118T only to find the arfin' Fuji factory 05' guitars do not have a deep enough bridge rail routing to afford compression foam under the pickup, so I'm pulling the guitar apart again to be able to adjust these T-90s.

That looks very promising Tavo!!! Hey, are you getting the right pickup height without the compression foam? If so, what's the need for foam? There's no foam on my old Guilds, and the P90-oids sit directly on the bracing - and they work and sound just fine! ;-)

22

I love that TV is doing this! P90's are a great option for any guitar. Though they look a little funny, they save the guitar from a seriously irreversible route job. Put a set of quick disconnects on the pickup leads & you can change them out on a whim. I might seriously consider a set for my beloved 13 w/ Black Chrome TV Supertrons.

I called 2 or 3 days ago. The reply was "sooner than later, certainly within the next 3 months".

We shall see.

the pickup's pole screw is less than 1/8th from the bottom of the string. The rails need to be routed just to allow the pkup to sit on bare wood to keep the strings from striking the pole screws. The foam is really important in getting a nice balance of lows and highs between neck and bridge. Personally its more about getting the perfect middle position sound.

Tom sent spec notes to us for the T-90; " 5/32" from the cover to the bottom of both E strings is good for the bridge and 3/16" for the neck. Compression is recommended. "

@Irv did you see the Paul P. demo vid, its from last yr's Namm with him playing a T-90s loaded SSLVO into a solid state jazz'r amp. it still should be on my beerbilly youtube channel

Yes Tavo, they sounded great, was he using his brain? (pedal, that is) They sound great in that video, so much that I'm seriously debating which guitar I can stick a set of those in.
I think what I'd really like to see is a T'Armond vs T90 video.
