Neodymium magnets

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by Joris, Apr 26, 2002.


  1. Hey all,

    I recently picked up :))) the idea of winding my own pickup with a coil for each string so I can do dome sort of volume-and-eq-per-string thingy. I plan to use the very strong Neodymium magnet material as coil cores.

    Now I was wondering, does anyone know of a pickup brand that uses Neodymium magnets? How do they sound compared to other stuff?

    Hi Joris,
    I think Fishman use this in their "rare earth" pickups - mostly for acoustic guitars.
    Also EMG - and they sound good!
