THE Tele Tone 

Adreas Kloppmann began working on guitars in the mid ‘80’s, during that time Andreas collected data from every pickup which passed his workbench. In the ‘90’s Andreas improved the analysis methods to further understand pickups and with the assistance of artists such as Thomas Blug, Jürgen Attig and Peter Weihe he discovered which frequencies found in specific pickup tones corresponded with which famous guitar tones he loved such as Hendrix, Hank Marvin and Pastorius.

Based on this ever developing knowledge, Kloppmann can now analyse the sound of a pickup from its data and decide what its ideal purpose is as well as replicate our favourite tones from musical history.

We know the typical ´50s Tele sounds from the Country Music stars like Vince Gill, Redd Volkaert and Arlen Roth. But not only these! Further Stars with that ´50s Tele sound: Jeff Beck, Keith Richards and Bruce Springsteen. All these musicians love the unique sounds a ´50s Tele can produce. The TL-50 Set is the perfect replacement set for history´s most versatile guitar.
