What is the basic build concept for a mag pup?
how do you determine how many winds to use?
how does more or less winds affect the sound?
can you build one to emphisize a certian range; ie boost bass, mid, or high?
do the magnets themselves impact the sound?
are rare earth magnets suitable for a mag pup?
Is a standard electric guitar pup suitable for a CBG?
Any any other info you woud like to add.
I think the laptop one is supposed to be able to keep up. I don't have a laptop, so I just use an industrial counter.
If you think 200 rpms is slow, try using a record player...
I wind at 2300 RPM.
My thoughts on using a record player is that there is not enough torque to properly tension the wire.
A record player is 78 RPM max. Yes, not much torque. The pickups I made that way were pretty microphonic.
2300 RPM is speedy. Most of the guys at the pickup winders forum wind in the 800-1200 range. I usually wind at around 800-900 RPM.
How do you setup the calculator to be a wind counter?
Sweet! Thanks! :)
