  1. I have on occasion wound electric guitar pickups. I also played around with piezo pickups also. I simple little diy transistor based pre-amp (to fix impedance) makes a world of difference on a piezo pickup, and does not add much cost.

  2. i did this with a piezo element from radioshack for my violin, it amazed my jazz group whenever they heard it. (plus it’s fun to go around telling people you built your own pickup)
