    Default Seth Lover pickups and tapping the cover...

    When I tap my Seth Lover pickups with my guitar pick, it is pretty noticeable (i.e. hearing it through the amp... click, click etc.). I know they are not potted but is this normal? I also read they don't ever go microphonic so I just assume they are sensitive this way.

    Thanks.

    That happens with any covered pickup, though some louder than others. You can also get clicking through the amp if you hit the bobbins of an uncovered pickup.
    In 1861 as Confederate forces were about to fire on Fort Sumter, the Blue and Gray had far more in common than the blue and red today. What fellowship can "the truth shall set you free" ever have with "what is truth"? Barring a major epidemic or nuclear attack to explode the postmodern myth that the reality outside our heads depends for its very existence on what we think of it, secession is coming...

    yes, it is normal

    note - in very high gain / high volume situations, they *could* go microphonic

    good luck

    Is it not the glory of the people of America that, whilst they have paid a decent regard to the opinions of former times and other nations, they have not suffered a blind veneration for antiquity, for custom, or for names, to overrule the suggestions of their own good sense, the knowledge of their own situation, and the lessons of their own experience?" - James Madison - Federalist #14
