Inductor Pickup

from Ian Watson

Inductor pickup (AKA Circuit Sniffer) as used to record Pylons & Spires. Made from instrument cable, mono jack and inductor. Used to record electromagnetic behaviour in domestic electronics, power adapters, laptops, mobile phones, lightbulbs etc. These need an input with a decent amount of gain. I use it in the mic input of a Kaoss Pad 2. It should work well with any other mic-input that has a trim/gain knob.

These are on black instrument leads around 50cm and feature a black, moulded plastic jack socket and a blue or yellow tip where the pickup is attached.

Includes unlimited streaming of Pylons & Spires via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
