The working principle of guitar pickup:
In brief, when the strings begin to oscillate, these oscillations affect the field in the vicinity of the pickup magnet, it induces a change in the flux of the magnetic field. Thus, there is a week current, the electrical signal is transmitted to the amplifier by wire. Finally, it comes into being the sound.

Electric guitar pickup magnet

The magnet material of guitar pickup
The magnets are at the heart of the pickup there are two main types of magnetic materials used:

1, Alnico-Aluminum Nickel Cobalt Magnet

First developed in the early 1940’s, alnico magnets are associated with mellow tone, a smooth response and a moderate output. This guitar pickup is suited for Blues, Jazz and Pop. Alnico magnet is divided into Alnico 2(Alnico II), Alnico 3(Alnico III), Alnico 5(Alnico V) and Alnico 8 (Alnico VIII). The common guitar’s magnet in market is Alnico 2(Alnico II) and Alnico 5(Alnico V). The magnetic intensity of alnico 2 is lower than alnico 5, so it can create more mellow and warm sound. The famous user of alnico 2 is SLASH. Alnico 5 can create more powerful and smooth sound. Alnico 5 is used for NUNO-N4, DIMEBAG WASHBURN, NECK-SH1-59, SH4-JB, SH2-Jazz, EMG85 and TONE ZONE.

2, Ceramic or Ferrite – Strontium Ferrite

It was developed as a low-cost and manufactured since 1954. The magnetic intensity is stronger than alnico magnet and has much better corrosion resistance than rare earth. The guitar pickups with ceramic magnets usually have a brighter sound. This guitar pickup is suited for Hard Rock and Metal. Ceramic is used for JOE, VAI and VAN HALEN.
