  1. "What I predicted" and "the housing I talked about" – I didn't hear any predictions nor anything about any housing?!?

  2. Maybe they were trying to keep the wire from being damaged by a possible sharp edge of the magnet?

  3. Some time ago I made an offset guitar body from solid mahogany (heavy) and fitted three gold-finished lipstick pickups into a solid copper scratchplate. It looked cool, but the pickups were really weak (4 k.ohms). So recently I bought another three from E-Bay rated at 7 k.ohms. First problem; the new lipsticks were shorter! So I opened them up as in the video, after warming them to melt the wax, with the idea of inserting the new ones into the older, larger tubes. Next surprise; the older pickup magnets were quite strong, compared with the newer, smaller magnets. Well, I fitted the new pickups into the larger tubes, packing them with Blu-tack. I didn't notice much improvement in the volume when I plugged the guitar in; the sound was still weak. I guess the greater resistance of the coils was cancelled out by the weaker magnets. I decided that they sounded okay played through the 'drive' channel of my amp.

  4. One of the reasons for the bar magnet instead of individual magnets was from a manufacturing standpoint, 1 big magnet is more simple to and there for cheaper than a bobbin and 6 small magnets. They were also easier to obtain at the time. Nathan Daniel (founder of Danelectro) was to much like Leo Fender in that he wanted to keep costs down. Surplus lipstick cases could be bought in bulk, bar magnets simplified the process and were also inexpensive by comparison, and the lipstick pickup was born. Atleast that's my understanding of their origins and the reasoning behind them.

  5. Probably the coil is heated up to cure or melt the potting compound. Kapton tape is a good electrical insulator, it also has a high temperature resistance to degredation or maybe resistance melting temperature more than nearly any other plastics tape. Kapton used is insulator between heat sink & voltage regulators replacing mica sheets.

  6. I was an electrician for the railroad and we used a similar yellow tape as an insulator, before wrapping connections with the black electrical tape. They probably used that to prevent the coil wires from shorting out against the magnet, in case there was a nick in the wire coating.👍😎🎸🎶

  7. The enamel is thin, there is a potential to short if you dont cover the magnet in the future. Some regular singgle coil use some protection too, usually they are dipped in lacquer before winding

  8. When a magnet touches magnet wire chemical reaction happens that destroys the wire. Most folks dip magnets in Nitrocellulose lacquer.

  9. it's great for flopping the polarity, which creates a slight swirling sound, kind of country twang…

  10. How do these even register string vibration if it's wrapped in electrical tape? Are they all like this? If so it must be very weak if it has electrical tape on it.

  11. The yellow is cellophane (you really need to take apart a real old Danelectro pickup from the 60s) They insulate the magnet from the copper coil. On a normal pickup that uses a bar magnet, the bar magnet is insulated from the copper coil by the bobbin. The lipstick p'up has no bobbin, so they use the cellophane to insulate them, one from the other. You know how electrical current is generated: either spin a copper coil around a magnet or spin a magnet inside a copper coil. That's all that's happening in any power generator, whether it's a water driven turbine in a dam, or the steam turbines inside a coal plant, or the steam turbines inside a nuclear plant. All they're doing is spinning gigantic copper coils around gigantic magnets. So pickups work the same way. Microphones work the same way too. And speakers do the exact same thing but in reverse. All of them work on the premise of a magnet and a copper coil and that generates electricity or accept electricity and then moves the speaker cone. But the coil and the magnet can't touch each other. That's why there's cellophane wrapped around that bar magnet, because there's no bobbin to separate the coil and the bar magnet. Know your gear.

  12. it’s dielectric tape…some winders (Lollar being one) do a wrap or two on strat/tele bobbins as it insulates like 70 times better than lacquer dipping the magnet/fiber bobbins. Lacquer is a crappy insulator and can interact with the formvar/enamel insulation coating on coil wire over time…especially with vibration over years…one reason old Fender pickups are known to short out fairly commonly from time to time. It feels very much like old cellophane tape.

  13. Nathan "Nat" Daniel ie" Danelectro" used lipstick tubes to house his pickups because he
     got them cheap, the bonus is the Lipstick pickups act as a Faraday cage and block rf interference, think shielding from florescent lights

  14. The other big advantage of a lipstick pickup is that the case is grounded, which shields the coil from interference.

  15. You might have found out why it's made like that and the differerce between that and other lipstick pickups. Duh!
