Nearest You'll Get to a Strat sound from a Tele
ChrisDowning, 11.11.2020
The Royal T is built to replicate how the Strat neck pickup get its tone - so it has taller pole pieces - alnico 5 - to allow for more windings of the thicker 42-gauge coil wire used in Strat pickups - the taller magnet allows for more windings whilst still staying inside the narrow, short tele style pickup. Also doesn't have the pickup completely encased in a brass, chrome coated cover - leaving the tops of the pole pieces open to the strings. This pick up will take your Telecaster even closer than the Twisted Tele Fender pickups into Stratocaster territory. I was using a Nocaster in the neck and that just didn't cut it in a band - but the Royal T is great and come close to that classic sound of the Stratocaster neck pickup whilst still retaining some Telecaster character. The Alnico 5s and 42 gauge wire gives it plenty of volume - so if you have a truly low output bridge pickup this one might not quite match up volume wise - its medium output in my opinion - just like your average Strat neck - so should suit 85% of Telecasters. You could go the whole hog and get a bridge pup from Lollar - see their site for matching recommendations. No cheap - but you Telecaster will be a tone monster!!

Fantastic Strat-like Tele neck pickup
T00DEEPBLUE, 04.04.2020
Beautiful sounding Strat pickup in a telecaster neck pickup bobbin. Construction cannot be faulted. Does exactly what it says on the box.

I have never been a big fan of Telecaster neck pickups due to the eddy currents imparted by the conductive metal cover, which is traditionally made out of brass. The cover sucks all of the higher end out of the tone, making the pickup sound muted and dark.

Removing the area of the cover on the top of the pickups virtually completely eliminates this eddy current effect. And what little is left of the cover on the Royal T being made out nickel silver, which again reduces the eddy current effect significantly compared to brass.

The Alnico 5 rod magnets are a logical choice, as Alnico 5, aside from being a traditional magnet type for old strat pickups, has a lower inductance than Alnico 2 or 3 due to having less permeability. A lower inductance means a higher resonant peak, resulting a brighter-sounding pickup.

Although a Tele neck pickup can never 100% match the tone of a Strat neck pickup (all else being equal) due to the physically smaller bobbin, the Royal T is about as close as it gets. And deliver it does.

What a difference to your Telecaster sound
Mads Bech, 17.08.2020
I put this in my 2004 Tele together with a Seymour Duncan Antiquity in the bridge position. I also put in a 4 way switch for having that extra series combination. This was just the change that took me from my Strat to start instead playing my Tele. The sound of the Royal T is fabulous! There is so much dynamics and clarity and the combination of the bridge and neck pickup works so well. I play mostly blues and rock and you can really get sounds from Jimi to Stevie Ray to Gilmour.

Sound ist top!
GeQ7, 26.12.2020
Der Sound des Royal T kommt auf meiner Tele daher wie beschrieben: sehr strattig, aber immer noch mit genug Tele-Anteilen.

So weit, so gut und auch zufrieden, aber die Verarbeitung ist für einen so teuren PU eigentlich nicht hinnehmbar.

Den ersten Royal hab ich gleich wieder zurückgeschickt, da die mitgelieferten Schrauben für Pickup/Pickguard einfach durch das Gewinde rutschten und somit ohne Hilfsmittel oder andere Schrauben nicht zu befestigen gewesen wäre.

Der Umtausch klappte wie immer problemlos, doch der ErsatzPU hatte exakt das gleiche Problem. Ich habe daraufhin mit dem sehr freundlichen Thomann-Support telefoniert, richtig Abhilfe konnte allerdings nicht geschaffen werden - ich musste einfach größere Schrauben nehmen (hatte zufällig genau 2 passende zuhause, welche aber die Optik doch ein wenig stören).

Außerdem waren die beiden Kabel in der Länge derart knapp bemessen, dass ich vor einem 2. Einbau wohl die Kabel verlängern müsste - es ging sich gerade noch so irgendwie aus.

Unterm Strich ein absolut toller PU, WENN man ihn denn mal überhaupt installieren konnte. Die Verarbeitung ist allerdings für einen so teuren PU wirklich schwach. An den Wicklungen, der PU-Kappe etc. und der restlichen Verarbeitung gibts natürlich nichts auszusetzen, aber unpassende Schrauben und zu kurze Kabel reichen doch schon, oder?

Wer Nerven (und genügend Ersatzschrauben zuhause ;-) hat, dem sei ein Test dennoch ans Herz gelegt - ich mag den PU trotzdem!
