a component of a phonograph which contains the stylus and also components for converting the vibrations of the stylus into electrical impulses for subsequent processing into sound; often referred to as a cartridge; also, the process of converting vibrations into electrical impulses.
A magnet wrapped with wire. The motion of the guitar's strings interferes with the pickup's magnetic field. This creates an electrical impulse, which is transmitted to the amplifier. The amplitude and quality of the impulse can be modified by the volume and tone controls.
A tiny sensor (often made from piezo material) that converts string vibrations into a continuous electrical signal. Some pickups can be mounted to a standard bridge without modifying the instrument, others are fitted to specially made violin bridges.
