I'd like to see that too. I had a link on the Instructables website showing how to adapt a variety of pre-wound electronic bits to make pickups.
I'll see if I can find it.
Good info. Just curious though If you had the option to fill the interior of the coil with a ferrous metal that could be magnetized would that works as well as a ready made magnet? Reason I ask is cause Im a metal worker and have the ability to cut any ferrous metal to perfectly fill the inside and magnetize it with the Mag Partical Test equipment at work
Is there any reason you couldnt use the primary windings with the thicker wire as a pup? I assume since it has thicker wire, hence fewer turns that the finished pup wouldnt be near as loud or hot as the secondary coil winding would be. But could the primary winding work? What Im thinking is you could use the secondary for the hotter of the two and the primary together and switch between the two or mix em together.
