JT Musical Inc., U.S. distributor of Tesla replacement pickups, has expanded Tesla's line of quality guitar and bass replacement pickups with: The Vintage Reflection "Nitro" and the "Plasma 7" pickups.
The Vintage Reflection "Nitro" model uses Alnico 5 magnets with balanced coils wound with 42 gauge Formvar wire to get a unique balance of clean tone that can get very aggressive providing extra punch in the middle tones. They are available in calibrated neck and bridge positions with choice of double black or zebra open coils (MSRP $59.95) or with chrome or gold covers (MSRP $64.95).
The new Tesla "Plasma 7" pickup gives a raw, high output response that provides easy distortion in the amp's front end. With its powerful ceramic magnets and balanced coils wound with 42 gauge US&mdashmade plain enamel wire, it's articulate, accentuating the player's picking attack. Available in calibrated neck and bridge positions in double black or double white open coil (MSRP $59.95).
Both models feature full wax potting to ensure against feedback, four conductor wiring for all possible popular combinations and attractive packaging.
