Advice on a picking out a pickup?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Steve Holladay Dec 15, 2016. 4 Replies

"Great playing, great composition, great sounding banjo...overall, just great. Really enjoyed your folksy style. OMG, did you just bang that thing against the ground? LOL, just rewound, and yes, you did. Well, it is a walking stick too I suppose!…"

"I'll chime in for pitchlab.  I've tried a few, and it's the best so far.  Easy to set up and save a custom instrument for any tuning."

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I'm not so much a builder of guitars as banjo like folk instruments. I've never used a cigar box, but cans, hubcaps, and junk I find at thrift stores. I joined a subreddit (gitfiddle) a while back started by Shane Speal, and posted some of my projects. I spoke with him in the comments some. I have ordered some parts from CB Gitty for projects with my Son. (Pickups). I'm more of a acoustic guy myself.
This morning I was checking YouTube for a video I posted last night of a washtub guitar my son built with my help. One of the suggested videos caught my eye was of a washtub bass on cigar box nation TV. I have one similar I built myself. Decided to check out the site and then decided make an account.
