    I know some of you guys are very knowledgeable on these matters, and some of you have made your own piezo pickups at home. I am mainly looking for good sources, online or in print (print is generally better), that explain how it works in some basic sense.

    Thanks so much!

    Thanks so much to both of you; that is just the sort of thing I need. If there is any more out there that people know about, even just a good resource on piezoelectricity, I would be infinitely grateful.

  3. Only thing I know is that it's cool to tweak the sound with it. If you mix piezo sound with the bridge sound for example. Really cool invetion. I don't care how it's build, I'm just using it.
