Identifying Pup phase

Dr. Rhubarb

Recommended Posts

You need a voltmeter to check the phase.

Here's the trick:

1) Connect the two wires of pickup to the two probes of the pickup. Aligator clips are great for this.

2) Tap the magnets of the pickup with a screwdriver, or keys. Watch the voltmeter when you tap them.

3) If there is a positive jump in the voltage (needle moves up), you are in phase. If there is a negative jump in the voltage, it's out of phase.

4) Write it down!

Works everytime for passive picups. Hope that helps.
