Hi, under the chrome cover is my new pickup experiment. It going into a resonator style CBG, you can just see the hookup wires sticking out. I have not wax potted it yet as I have a bit more work to do. Its what I would call a Hummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Bucker, bucker, bucker, bucker.

It could be 32 single coils or 16 humbuckers, I have not worked out the wiring yet. I've got a 2000watt pa to test it through, and Ill be doing that out in the garden, after taping up the windows.

Early tests are promising.

Nice washing machine motor .  If you  end  up with something you like , you can downsize it with a cd drive motor . May be more practical for  cbgs . or diddlys .

Love to see the wiring diagram! Has some a similar layout to a low rpm dc generator, so cool!!!!

Hi, ok pick I confess, I'm not going to use it as a pickup I was only joking. Sorry guy's.

Although it does pick up and sound through the amp when tapped with a screwdriver, I think I'd need pretty heavy strings to generate enough energy using those heavy coil windings to make music.

LOL ,hey  , don't knock the idea just yet . I've made  weird pups outta  electric razors etc ..

I didn't get much from my "Hand Drill Motor" pickup used in my "Plumbers Challenge" build. The bigger gauged wire requires more electrical current than you want to handle or use some transformers like the low inductance pickups use.
