What is a guitar pickup?

- Nov 05, 2019-

As the name suggests, the pickup is the device that picks up the sound. It is located above the body, under the strings, mostly made of metal or plastic. Although the pickups come in different sizes and designs, the principles of their operation are the same.


A pickup consisting of a magnet and a copper coil generates a magnetic field, which is where the strings are located. When the string starts to vibrate, the magnetic field changes, and the current flowing through the coil changes accordingly. After passing through the loudspeaker and pushing the horn, the sound is finally output.
