What is a Guitar Pickup?
Guitar pickups are simply microphones (transducers for you,”educated players”) that “pick up” or “sense” the vibrations of the strings of your electric guitar. They convert the vibrations into sound that can be boosted with an amplifier. The “quality” of the sound produced depends on how well they are made.
The reason we have more than one guitar “Pickup Manufacturer” is because each one claims to be able to do it better. Some do and some don’t.
How Does it Work?
A guitar pickup contains one or more magnets inserted into a bobbin. The bobbin is made of magnetic poles, cutout paper stand-offs and wound with conductive wire. The device is able to transform the mechanical energy (string vibrations over each magnetic pole-piece) into electrical energy. The energy goes through the selector switch, the volume control then out to your amp. A guitar amp transforms the electrical energy back into mechanical energy and sends the newly transformed signal through your speaker as sound waves.
