ylon stringes bass with electronic pickup
Because electronic pickups do not use coils they
work very well on metal covered nylon strings.
Shown here an example of a Nylon stringed bass
guitar. Electronic pickups can also be mounted on
a Double Bass, it is possible to make use of a
quadraphonic pickup, where each string can be
adjusted in volume seperatedly, and if so wanted
have seperate tone or volume control. Because
nylon string have a stronger vibration than steel
strings, a very deep bass sound is generated.

Some of the advantages are listed below:
Much higher dynamics than
traditional pickups, with this we
mean that the difference between
a soft and a hard struck note is
much louder than with the
traditional pickups. Very high
channel separation, or very low
signal crossover. This makes it
possible for instance by a 12
string guitar, to pickup each of the
double strings separately or in
The high channel separation makes
them ideally suited for use as
hexaphonic pickup for driving V-guitar
systems or guitar synths. Electronic
pickups can be made very thin, so
they can be placed under the strings
of for instance a citer. Because
electronic pickups do not use coils
they work very well on metal covered
nylon strings. With a little trick they
can also be used for nylon strings
without metal cover
Electronic pickups are insensitive
for magnetic fields, this makes
them ideally suited to use in a
feedbacksystem with a magnetic
actuator. Because electronic
pickups do not use magnetic
fields they have no string pull and
so a longer sustain than
electromagnetic pickups. They are
not sensitive to stray magnetic
fields, from for instance your
amplifier, like coil based pickups.
Electronic pickups have a flat
frequency curve, so no resonance
"color" is added.
Unlike traditional pickups that do
not have a flat frequency
This allows for broader
"colouring"by means of
equalisation or tone control.
