Magnetic pickups may not be the "truest" sound to some but they still can deliver some excellent sounds that are unmistakably resonator. I have a couple that, though maybe not exactly like a mic'd version, audiences love em and they sound bad ass.

Perhaps SOME will, but the ones I've mentioned, and have used, will not.

I might not understand the dynamics entirely of magnetic pick ups but the quote above pretty much says the same thing as what Highlander pick ups claim. I think the subtleties of these coned guitars are best reproduced through microphone technology. Regardless of how close you can get with other types the microphone or microphone pick up seems to be the most faithful from all reports.

That is my point despite perhaps being slightly or even completely wrong regarding magnetic pick ups.

Electro magnetic pick ups essentially just convert your Tricone into a typical electric guitar by virtue of the fact that they don't amplify the actual sound but rather react to string vibration like in all other magnetic pick up guitars. You can recapture some of the Tricone sound using effects but its not as clear or faithful as a microphone or the Highlander pick up which is essentially a microphone inside the sound well under your bridge centered in between the cones.

Expensive by comparison but I'm convinced worth it.


This is really not quite right. I use the Flatbucker as well as National's new slimline on 3 Nationals, tricone included. They sound quite natural, yet a microphone would be closer. Chris Whitley used magnetic pickups, and there's no mistaking what he's playing. Sure doesn't sound like a Les Paul... The trick with these is they also sense some of the body as well as the strings, according to National.

I use Mags in all my flattops as well, but prefer the LR Baggs M-1 or the Takamine TriAx over the Fishman RE for precisely that reason, body sensing. Tap the pickup, you'll hear it thru the amps.

If you're playing solo at even volumes, +1 on the Highlander, if in a band at louder specs, I'd highly recommend a National Slimline. Feedback resistant, true sound.
