Pickup Magnets


Recommended Posts

Any differences between changing brightness by coil dimensions and magnet dimensions? Dynamic changes?

I'm assuming that warming tone by enlarging the magnet cylinders would suck more sustain with it's greater magnet field, but widening the coil wouldn't do that. I might be totally wrong though.

I guess Jon Bell has it about as close as you can get. I tried to make a pickup shaped like a "W" a couple of months ago and its magnetic footprint was HUGE. Very indistinct output (muddy) and way low output (my fault). Would have been a great pickup for a banjo! Let's see, where is that dumb lol thingie? THERE it is! :D
