  • Great lesson in audio design. I have to ask, though, why you are trying to design a guitar pickup. The standard design is great: It has a pair of coils wired in opposite directions to cancel any hum, and it uses a magnet as the core, so that it does not pick up sound at all. It picks up variations in the magnetic field when the steel string moves. It is clever and it works.

No public wish lists :(
