Electromagnetic Mic

Wire up a guitar pickup to a jack. You’ll be able to hear stuff our ears don’t detect. Light switches, electronics, your telephone, electric motors and so on all create electromagnetic energy and you’ll be able to record it now.

Wire your ground wires together, and then the other two wires together and voila.

This is me waving it a good foot away from my monitor. The higher pitched bit towards the end is from my mobile.

GUITAR PICKUPS HAVE MAGNETS IN THEM.
So don’t go putting it on your hard drive or on your computer or dump it in your bag alongside your portable recorder etc. It’s a magnet remember.
