Choose from our exclusive collection of tonal options based on our own Belltone® designs and those from our collaborative partnerships with US and International boutique pickup builders.
The classic ‘Tron’ reimagined with the increased clarity of a traditional filtertron but with more output, more mids, and overall greater punch. Housed in our exclusive hilo ‘open silver foil face’ casing.
All the mid tone growl and kick of a standard single coil P-90 but without the 60 cycle hum. Housed in our brushed nickel filtertron size casing.
Hot Rodded PAF humbucker tone with articulate bass, rich mids, and smooth highs. Housed in our exclusive Hilo ‘open silver foil face’ casing.
Vintage Strat single coil tone with slightly more output in our ‘noiseless’ stack format. Housed in our full open face filtertron size casing.
Like a classic filtertron character but with more attitude, the TV Classic Plus is wound with thinner gauge wire providing slightly rounder top-end and touch of more output. Many players desire a Filter’Tron that has “more” to it’s sound … this pickup fills that need very well.
The TV Jones Super’Tron is a replica of the original early 1960’s prototype design. It is basically a TV Classic with steel blades instead of pole screws and the resulting tone retains classic Filter’tron clarity, but with a bold and full broadband punch. The steel blades used in the Super’Tron provide a larger magnetized surface area producing greater inductance and you will notice a little more output and body with a slightly more accentuated lower-mid range. Warmer and less aggressive than the mid 1960’s Gretsch Super’Trons.
– Both pickups are housed in a vintage style hilo-tron ‘open face’ casing. They are offered in Black, Off White Parchment, and Red.
Captures the warm, clean, and smooth characteristics of the late 50’s, early 60’s PAF humbuckers with just a pinch more output. Housed in Benson’s retro dot mesh casing.
Classic 60’s Strat single coil tone with bell-like clarity and definition. Bright high end, smooth mids, and a balanced low end. Available in Black, White, and Brick.
All the refined brawn of the BBQ standard humbucker in a filtertron package. It is ‘hot’ but not a distortion pickup, just more muscle. Very different tonality than a standard vintage Filtertron pickup. If you’re looking for a direct traditional Filtertron replacement sound (sparkle/jangle), this isn’t the pickup for you. But if you are seeking a more aggressive mid soaked sonic approach that retains clarity and articulation, this is a great choice
Perfect partner to the BBQ Tron bridge pickup … Slightly less output but with great warmth and punch. Both pickups are available in Vintage White Pearl and Tortoise Shell open face format.
True untamed vintage single coil P-90 tone but in a Filtertron size casing. Played clean, they are clear, bright but with a somewhat rounded high end warmth, and when pushed hard, they rock & rage with a full, deep mid driven howl.
Utilizes Fender style Alnico 5 rod magnets for extra brightness and sparkle. Provides the classic single coil bell-like chime and articulation in a Filtertron® size P-90 style casing
