Almuse NeoMag pickups are an innovative development of the electro-magnetic guitar pickup specifically designed and proportioned for mandolin family instruments. They were inspired by the desire to create an evenly responsive instrument for live performance and recording.
A common failing of electric mandolins equipped with guitar derived pickups is the imbalance of volume from string to string - the "E" tending to be especially weak. Another problem can be a very trebly tone and since neodymium magnets are widely accepted as giving a more mellow tone, these are used.
To combat the imbalance issue, graduated magnets are used and adjustable pole pieces are included for fine tweaking of the levels. These pickups are assembled by hand before scatter winding, also by hand. As a result of this, please note that D.C. resistance measurements quoted are a typical figure and may fluctuate slightly.
pickups are supplied with mounting screws and springs
