DiMarzio The Tone Zone T for Tele Model DP389 The Tone Zone T brings the performance of the famous Tone Zone to a humbucking Tele replacement-size pickup. We 've built in the tremendous mid-range and bass response of the original Tone Zone , and the same patented dual-resonance design produces great harmonics. Four-conductor wiring provides parallel humbucking and split-coil modes, so you can go from bang to twang at the flick of a switch.
Bridge position, Telecaster -style guitars.
If you compare the specs of the full-size Tone Zone with those of the Tone Zone T , you will notice they don 't match. That's because the trick in building a single-coil size pickup to sound like its big brother is to go for the sound rather than the numbers. We also took into account the likelihood that the Tone Zone T will be installed in the classic slanted Tele bridge position, so we've warmed up the higher frequencies and brightened the low notes a little to compensate.
