Low Impedance pickup - prototype

Postby Beate Ritzert » Thu Sep 20, 2018 9:02 pm

Just finished the prototype of a LoZ pickup. Works nicely into a microphone input, and sounds very natural / open. As "acoustic" as one might get from flatwound strings. This is a current transfomer, primary a single loop of 10 mm^2-wire combined with a secondary of 500 turns (Talema AX-500). Same principle as the Alumitone, but low impedance / large bandwidth. I could imagine that it would sound great on archtop guitars.


TODO: control the bass response - it is a bit too low for an electric bass. Find a place for the secondary loop.
