CE12 Steel Guitar Pickup

$20.00 - $140.00

This pickup is the classic style single coil similar to Emmons or Truetone, with the same 1/4 inch alnico magnets and 42 awg wire. Many people prefer this type of pickup, The overall pickup height including the space for the pickup wires is 0.89 inch, and it’s a standard wide mount baseplate.

I have made a few design improvements over the typical way these have been made in the past, specifically:

-The bobbin is 3D printed as one piece and does not rely on glue for structural integrity
-A 3D print full plastic cover protects the coil
-The coil is potted to reduce microphonics

These pickups will be wound to 18 K-ohms as standard, however I can wind the pickup to any desired resistance. Since the design is very similar to Emmons or Truetone, a CE12 pickup wound to say 18 K-ohms will measure and sound the same as an Emmons or Truetone at 18 K-ohms.

The CE Series is also designed to accommodate a coil tap, and these are accomplished with additional eyelets for the magnet wire connection. This prevents any gaps in the coil which can create microphonics. If interested in this option, simply select the Coil Tap Adder in the pull down menu.

Steeltronics utilizes on demand 3D printing for key components, therefore normal production time is 4 weeks for most orders.
