Kent Armstrong is the second generation of guitar wizards the Armstrong family has produced, indeed Kent’s own son Aaron now famously creates pickups too and Kent’s father Dan ran a great guitar repair shop in New York City. With such a lineage its unsurprising to learn that their pickups are some of the best in the world and have been used by great such as Jimmy Page, Rory Gallagher, Matt Bellamy and even members of the TonePedia team have them in some of their own favourite guitars. Kent himself work alongside the world famous pickup designer Bill Lawrence before moving to the UK.
The tweed tone pickups are a vintage-style pickup but with more output than a traditional Strat pickup. Good all-rounder for blues and rock. Similar power as the Texas Vintage” but with a mellower vintage tone. Imagine an over-wound Strat pick-up that has aged and this is what you’ll get.
