Making A Cigar Box Guitar Pickup (video)

13 Oct, 2012

Home made pickup for a cigar box guitar

Blaise started making his own CBG pickups a couple of years ago and recently made the one pictured above for an electro-accoustic “wine box guitar” that’s in the works. With a coil of eight thousand turns, it has 4 polepiece slugs and a resistance of 4.4 kohm.

When at first he figured out how to count the turns as he is hand winding the coil, he made a short video to share:

(Some more info about how he set up his calculator/counter can be found on on his blog Blues Spirit but you need to understand French. You can also give it a try with an automatic translator)

Blaise a commencé à faire ses propres pickup CBG il y a quelques années et a récemment fait celui ci-dessus (photo) pour une électro-acoustique “guitare boîte à vin” qui est en construction. Avec une bobine de huit mille tours, il a 4 plots et une résistance de 4,4 kohm.

A l’époque, lorsqu’il a trouvé le moyen de compter le nombre de tours pour la bobine, il a fait cette vidéo pour expliquer.
