    Why is the thread title "Zero Magnet"?

    I've seen that thread.
    I'm just asking why the OP used the phrase "zero magnet" in the (now two identical) thread title(s).

    The power source is a massive fail, in my option. A properly designed active pickups can live off of an alkaline 9V battery for over a year. I DO NOT want to recharge my bass.

    As has been mentioned, this is just a low turn count pickup with an on-board preamp. Using laminated PCBs to make an inductor is clever, but that's more of a manufacturing trick than anything a user would care about.

    I am curious how they sound.
