Founded in the late 1930s by Harry DeArmond, DeArmond is a manufacturer of guitar parts and accessories most known for easy-to-install guitar pickups such as the Rhythm Chief fingerboard-mounted archtop guitar pickup and the RHC soundhole pickup for acoustic guitar.
Now considered cult classics for their retro vibe and vintage tone, many DeArmond pickup designs such as the Dynasonic and Gold Foil were used by guitar brands like Guild, Gretsch, Epiphone, Harmony, and Silvertone throughout the 1950s, 60s and 70s.
With state-of-the-art products such as the Tone Boss acoustic soundhole pickup (2017) and forthcoming re-releases of original designs, DeArmond continues to offer vintage-inspired user-friendly products for guitarists of all types.
