Brown Sugar tele
The Brown Sugar is a vintage hot Tele® set with classic mid range grind, tight bass and characteristic bite in the high-end. Well suited to players looking for authentic Tele® tones with a distinct rock voice.
This pickup has been voiced entirely to capture a tonal vibe rather than any specific vintage era, and the Brown Sugar Tele® set oozes rock'n'roll attitude. Scatter-wound with polysol wire for extra output and a more pronounced mid-growl, the treble response is bright and percussive with a fast pick attack. The copper plated steel baseplate on the bridge coil keeps the bass response tight with low notes, retaining the pickup’s depth and punch, while the neck coil has a complementary warm and woody tone. Clean tones have a bright snap to the front of each note, darker than lower output Tele® coils with a fuller single note tone. The intentional rock voicing of the Brown Sugar set suits a wide range of driven tones from mild break up through to full saturation with an overdriven amp, and full wax potting ensures no microphonic squealing.
