How Mag­nets In­flu­ence tone

Guitarist - - Feature -

“This is very im­por­tant,” says renowned pickup maker Tim Mills. “The two most com­mon mag­nets used in gui­tar pick­ups are Al­nico and ce­ramic. They re­pro­duce very different tones from a gui­tar when used in a pickup. Al­nico, as a gen­eral rule, al­ways pro­duces a fuller, warmer tone with pro­nounced mid-range and sweeter highs. Ce­ramic, by com­par­i­son, pro­duces a much brighter high, smoother mids and tight, fast-track­ing bot­tom-end.”
