Pickup Problem


Recommended Posts

Send me the pickups, I could use the wire in there as I'm making my own custom pickups :D.

Ok, to your problem.

If you want to bring the pickup back to life, you could try building a pickup winder. If you use a drill, you will risk to break the wire as it's as thin as hair. Search the internet for ideas and build a winding mechanism. After you rewind the the pickup, it'll sound more vintage because it's now handwound :D (You might want to pot it afterwards though).

Be aware, an average single coil is about 8000-9000 turns of wire.

Anyway, good luck, and if you are thinking of throwing the thing away, send me an e-mail. I'd be happy to recieve some free wire and a free bobbin for my next Raydenmegasuperhyperpickup. :D

Naah, I'm not that pro at pickups... I just need something to practice on B)


Jimbo :D
