The [[202302041744 E3 (Mobile Lace Sensor Pickup)]] gives the sound a more pronounced attack, while the [[202302041802 E1 (Filtertron Mobile Pickup)]] picks up more of the resonance of the harmonics. This difference is also present when both pickups are at the same position along the string. Why is there such a difference? Is this the difference between humbucker and single-coil? Or is it because the [[202302041744 E3 (Mobile Lace Sensor Pickup)]] is upside down and hovering over the strings. ## Workshop notes - [[2022-08-25]] [[202303031238 Assemblage A.J.33.78]] - Use the [[202208252206 Object 78 (Large round file)]] to bow [[202208252212 Object 33 (Large Nail)]] for harmonic resonance with soft and noisy transient peaks. - [[2023-05-04]] [[202305042136 Recording A.E1.E3.33.78]] | When using [[202208252212 Object 33 (Large Nail)]] as a 3rd bridge (on the 12th fret) there is a big difference between the sounds the two pickups put out.
