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.
The TL 55 is the perfect alternative for all who find the TL 50 Set a bit too powerful, mid-heavy and raw. The bridge pickup has staggered poles. The tone here is all about that Tele twang. It snaps, is funky and sparkly! The neck pick up has a slimmer tone, ideal for fans of defined neck pickup sounds – and especially on the bass strings.
