The Super Distor’Tron™ offers the performance of the infamous Super Distortion® in a Gretsch Filter’tron-style package. We've built in the same blend of power and tone that has made the original Super Distortion® the worldwide standard for high-output humbuckers for over 50 years.

The Super Distortion® started a sound revolution. Replacement pickups simply didn’t exist before the invention of the Super Distortion® in the early 70s. The Super Distortion® was the first pickup specifically designed to kick a tube amp into total overdrive and is still the standard by which all other high-output pickups are measured. The Super Distortion® has a perfect blend of power and tone: both single-notes and chords jump out of the amp and fill the room (or the track) with a wall of sound. The balance of tones is classic — thick, boosted mids, big lows and fat highs. This is the sound you’ve heard for over five decades on platinum records, from players as varied as Ace Frehley, Al Di Meola, Phil Collen, Tom Scholz, and Paul Gilbert. It’s also versatile: 4-conductor wiring allows instant access to Strat®-like split and series-parallel modes. Discover what thousands of great players know: the Super Distortion® is the best all ’round high-power pickup ever made.

 

The Super Distor'Tron™ includes optional mounting hardware for humbucker mounting applications.
