Default Home Brew piezo pick-up? - 04-13-2008, 08:46 PM

Anyone ever make their own?

I was thinking of giving it a try. I like tinkering with things such as this, but don't want to go through the albeit small expense if I won't be able to get a halfway decent sound. This would not be for gigging...just for plugging in at home.

A quick Google comes up with this: http://web.mit.edu/kumpf/www/Acoustics/main.html

It looks like a fun little project, and has audio samples that sound... alright. Of course, you don't know how the guitar sounded acoustically to begin with. All things considered, I think judging by the clips it would definitely be cool for playing at home.

If you end up making one, post some clips and stuff about how it came out!

i've done these before they are pretty good, even better with active pre-amps, my acoustic has a homebrew peizo bridge element, a normal single coil pickup in the sound hole, a homebrew pre-amp, and a jazz bass type electronics setup (2 volumes 1 tone), so i can blend the single coil and peizo


stuff it....... then bake it.......

Thanks both. I will indeed give this ago. Warm weather is increasing my honey-do list, but I'll get it done and will report back.
