Anyone got- or know where I can get- one of those rather nasty reed/neck pickups for sax? I’ve got a bit of stuff coming up trying to fake a Van Der Graaf Generator/Hot Rats era Zappa sort of sound and thought one of these would do the job nicely. Plus- I seem to remember they work well with guitar effects too…..

Do you mean you wish to have one put on the actual neck of your sax?

They used them on older mouthpieces I believe? Other forum members will help with my memory lapse here please.....

That'd be like the one you sold me for two and ninepence a while ago cos you thought nobody else would want it then?

Precisely- my desire to do the 1970s 'electric sax' thing is something of a one off
.. and, as you'll know, that's pretty much what its good for

I'd offer to lend it but I haven't found it since we moved house and it's glued to a plastic (Bari) sop reed.

Why has someone stuck the jack socket off a fender strat on a Saw ?

Ah yes....my sound engineer guru at work again- every so often the ides of recording with his space rock band comes while we're out drinking - i think both post relate to that..... does it count as a double post as they are Two years apart?

Quadruple post

2 posts times 2 years = 4

Jules, I have a C-Ducer pickup from the 80s, let me know if you're interested.
