When DiMarzio decided to go for the vintage Tele sound, they knew they had to do more than just copy a forty-year-old design. DiMarzio wanted pickups that captured the best elements of their favorite Broadcaster and Telecaster sounds ヨ and then some. The Twang King pickups have unequalled response to pick attack: light playing produces a soft, quiet tone and hard picking creates a harder, louder, and more dynamic sound than any comparable single-coil. They accomplished this with a combination of controlled-tension coil-winding, special wire, and hand-calibrated magnets. The neck pickup comes with a chrome cover, and the bridge model has a ferrous base plate. Both pickups are wax-potted twice for squeal-free performance.

DiMarzio didn't model the Twang King bridge pickup after a specific original. Instead, they combined the best tonal qualities of several Broadcaster and Telecaster pickups from the 50s and early 60s. They were aiming for a balance between big, clean lows and fatter-sounding highs, and they wanted the pickup to be able to handle a very wide dynamic range, so the sound would clean up with soft picking and really open up with a harder attack.
