"Further experiments with my 5.4K four pole single coil alnico5 pickup with a plastic cover: I used a 10" piece of a very fine string to find the magnetically hot spots of the pickup. On the surface of the pickup hottest is the point between the…"
"Not to denigrate your own experience, which is well documented here, but I will equally respectfully agree to disagree to agree, through my own experimentation using both movable single coil pups with fixed pole pieces, and those with…"
"No tests or data to back this up, but at some point the magnetic pull has to effect the strings ability to vibrate /oscillate i'd think, and effect volume less than sustain probably, as i say, just my thoughts."
""(The closer a pickup is to the strings the louder the volume.) Perhaps I misunderstand what you're saying."
Not necessarily. Try an experiment with a pup that only adjusts the whole pup up and down, much less individual pole pieces.…"
"I ran a test with a 5.4K four pole single coil on a three string cbg, poles and strings both spaced 30mm, so that the middle string is situated between the middle poles of the pickup. A blade overneath the pickup has only one effect: it looses…"
"Wayfinder, I just noticed that you live in Platte City. I went to Platte City HS in 62/63. We moved back to KC so I lost touch with all my classmates. Many fond memories of that area. I've lived is several states…"
"Thank you Wayfinder. CBN is the premier site for my new passion. I've been collecting the heck out of parts and other items for CBG's I even found some decent Cigar Boxes the other day so I'm excited to get…"
