Stefan444, 15.07.2018
Since Under Saddle piezo pickups are out of the question because of their alienating unit sound, and a microfonic pickup is the better choice, but not always practical, I was once again looking for another magnetic soundhole pickup.
To be honest, I was looking for a single coil for my vintage OM guitar, which looks good and does not cost several hundred Euros ...
In the Inet I noticed the Gretsch Deltoluxe. Apparently new on the market, so far without customer reviews. Tests were not to be found. Ok, I thought to myself, are you doing some pioneering work and ordering a part of it?
Reliable as Thomann is, the Deltoluxe pickup was then at supersonic speed here. Quickly unpacked and the first impression (look, feel) was quite pleasant. Nice flat, metallic (no plastic) and already with valuable endpin jack optionally available for permanent installation. However, also with accessories for bushing outside on the endpin, so also for use without permanent mounting.
The pickup looks quite valuable and not too clumsy, the soundhole mounting is practical and thoughtful.
However, height adjustment does not exist here. The chic look goes at the expense of height-adjustable pole pieces.
Ok, I then installed and connected it (first to a Digitech RP 355).
For comparison, further Western guitars provided in which other magnetic pickups are installed.
It turned out that the Gretsch Deltoluxe, despite its high distance to the string due to installation (with my instrument), of about 7mm is surprisingly present and powerful. This also very differentiated and free of background noise. Compared to my other magnetic pickups, which like the Gretsch Deltoluxe are no humbuckers, it still offers a deep u. center-weighted sound. Absolutely not dull or mushy but just not high altitude.
A sound image of my OM guitar in terms of assertiveness against dreadnought guitars is quite good.
Later test in the rehearsal room at the acoustic amplifier showed that the Deltoluxe does not tend to annoying feedbacks even at higher volumes. So, quite suitable for performance.

After a few days of testing, the Gretsch Deltoluxe was now installed in the instrument for permanent use with Endpin bushing.

In terms of workmanship, appearance u. Sound comes the Deltoluxe in proven Gretsch quality that convinces me personally. Price / performance is right, so my clear buy recommendation.

A pickup for "Lightning Hopkins" and blues fans

Harry Davidson, 26.07.2018
"Gretsch Deltoluxe"? - after a long research on the web I found out that Gretsch presented this magnetic pickup for acoustic guitars at the Winter NAMM 2018. And it does not advertise - funny. , , Anyway, it has always been my fervor that I could not amplify my Gretsch "Jim Dandy" guitars. Although I installed a "MiSi" piezo pickup in one of the two, the sound was never balanced - the high E string was barely audible and could not be eliminated even after x times installation and removal. A YouTube video with the "Deltoluxe" (from "Delta Blues"?), Made me hope. This pickup obviously follows the legendary "DeArmond 210" (used by Lightning Hopkins in his Gibson J50). So ordered 2 pieces and installed in the "Jim Dandy" Parlor Gretsches. Conclusion: the optically retro-looking single-coil pickups bring exactly the expected sound. Plugged into the Fender "Blues Junior", you indulge in the vintage sound that the guitars already pretend. It does not hurt to spin the pickup in the soundhole until everything sounds balanced. On the bass side, I added 2mm felt to create more "twang" - now it's perfect - goodbye Piezo!
