This is a brand new boxed DiMarzio True Velvet Telecaster Bridge and Neck Pickup set.

True Velvet™ T Bridge DP178

The sound of a great vintage Tele® bridge pickup - if you can find one - is almost magical. It blends elements that shouldn’t be able to coexist: sizzle and warmth, sharp attack, and smooth sustain. In other words, it has depth. Single notes have weight and presence, and chords have detail and dimension. This was DiMarzio’s goal for the True Velvet™ T Bridge. Controlled-tension coil winding, custom wire and hand-calibrated magnets give the True Velvet™ T real vintage sound, and double wax potting ensures that it’s squeal-free.

Like the Twang King™ Bridge model, DiMarzio’s sonic goal was to combine the best tonal qualities of several Broadcaster® and Telecaster® pickups from the '50's and early '60's. The difference is the "size" of the sound. The True Velvet™ T Bridge is bigger, and there's greater dynamic range, from soft to loud.

True Velvet™ T Neck DP177

Tele® neck pickups are finicky creatures. Players have often complained that they’re too weak, too muddy, and just don’t sound good. The Twang King™ Neck solved these problems, and DiMarzio have taken it to the next level with the True Velvet™ T Neck. The low strings are as big and clean sounding as they are with the Twang King™, the highs are smoother, and the attack is stronger. This combination of qualities allows the True Velvet™ T to sound both pretty and tough.

Like the Twang King™, the True Velvet™ T features controlled-tension coil-winding, special wire and hand-calibrated magnets. It also has an un-plated nickel cover for the purest sound, and it's wax-potted twice for squeal-free performance.
