Off topic (Low imp guitar pickup sources)
« on: April 28, 2005, 12:32:48 pm »

     Any of you'se crazy cats know where I can score some nice low imp humbuckers that fit in standard (stratocaster) single coil and (gibson) humbucker positions.

    Trying to make a versitile pickup configuration using buffer/preamp and a variable lowpass filter with variable resonance.

    I want the pickups characteristic resonance/roll off to be way higher than a normal pickup (like 10Khz or higher) so it has minimal influence on what the filter is doing.

    I know Alembic makes pickup and preamps with a similar method.  But they start at 700$ and only go up from there.

    All of the EMG and Seymourduncan active systems have the electronics potted in with the pickup so I don't know exactly what I'm working with.

Heres a link to the filter Design That PRR helped me with.

probably cost me 50-100$ a pair to make some high quality preamps and filters.

I'm hoping I can find a pickup for close to the same price.

Reason for the filter is, I want to be able to change tonalities of the pickup to suite different playing styles on the fly.  For example very limited bandwidth say about 1.5-2K and lots of gain for Heavy Metal (some nice diode distortion).  Wide open for clean playing and chord work and season to taste.

    Sorry to be redundant.  I thought I was going to get lost   in a forgotten thread.

Thanks all
