Dynamic and Bold

Over 57 years in the making, the Duo-Tron's origins hark directly back to the very first patented humbucking guitar pickup. The unique and proprietary design was developed with Chet Atkins in mind and by a master fingerpicker who was known as Atkins' "right-hand man," (and Chet's best friend,) Mr. Paul Yandell. Paul Yandell’s Duo-Tron is a simplified version of Ray Butts' stereo concept laid out in his original patent drawings, (No. 2,892,371, filed Jan. 22, 1957 and awarded June 30, 1959.) TV Jones’ world-class product line and stellar reputation in the industry were the driving force to bring the final version of the Duo-Tron to life. In addition, the Duo-Tron features our new proprietary finish, Industrial Velvet, which is currently exclusive to this pickup.

Bridge: Two specially wound bobbins featuring blades and pole screws.

DC Resistance: 7.60K | Inductance: 2.97H

Neck: Two specially wound bobbins featuring blades and pole screws.

DC Resistance: 4.0K | Inductance:1.60H


The Duo-Tron's proprietary design combines blades and special alloy pole screws that highlight the response of the magnet. The blades provide a bigger note and is well-suited for finger-picking styles. The player won't lose any sensitivity bending the treble strings and will notice a fuller, bolder response that affects both sound - and equally important – feel. The bass side dials in a tone directly reminiscent of Ray’s original Filter’Tron - but with a touch more dynamic attack that is a little more focused and rounded.

Likeness/Derived from:

Super'Tron, TV Classic and TV Classic Plus.

Note: 4 conductor wire is not recommended for the Duo-Tron, however, it is convenient for custom switching. Pickup ships with 4 conductor wire, but ready for two conductor installation.
