"In my experience, it works, but the signal isn't very loud. You might be able to beef things up by using a stronger magnet, like a neodymium magnet. "

"I took apart a transformer and found a great quantity of wire...but it is thicker than the 42 gauge everyone recommends...seems to be about twice as thick...I know I won't get as many winds if I use a standard bobbin...but could I use this if I…"

Hey Skeesix, I received my prewired pickup and jack yesterday. Fast delivery. Thank you very much for the directions, too.

Great job. Thanks again.

Skeesix, the pickup on your slide guitar instructionarl video sounds nice & crisp. Whats your secret? Do you have a decent amp? (All I have is a crappy Honeytone...)

Hi Skeesix - Thanks for leaving a comment with my last vid. You asked how I got the vocal effect - its not very clear from the vid but I'm using an old telephone ear-piece as a microphone. Inspired by Bluesbeaten Redshaw and Bol Log III. The signal is then routed via some distortion, a bit of compression and then a little reverb was added. 

Glad you liked the vid and here's wishing you a wonderful 2011.
