Use a genuine Cochranes of Oxford Magnaprobe™ Mark II to correctly align your alnico magnet guitar pickups. They work great no matter whether you're using AlNiCo grade 2,3,4,5,8 or 9 or even ceramic rod magnets.

Bought Alnico 5 single coil pickups online because they were cheaper but don't seem to meet spec? The magnets could be mismatched or simply poor quality. A Genuine Magnaprobe™ might help you troubleshoot the problem. This is especially true if you are experimenting with what you think are very strong Neodymium Rare Earth N52 grade magnets.

Beware of companies using "Magnaprobe" to describe their product. They are actually cheap copies that easily fall apart. If it doesn't say "Magnaprobe" on the handle, it's a poor copy. If safe shopping is important to you, here's how to spot just one example of a fake Magnaprobe. Price & "free" shipping is no guarantee of quality. We stand behind the real thing!

The Magnaprobe is a fascinating way to demonstrate the three dimensional nature of magnetic fields. It consists of a small alnico bar magnet that is gimbal mounted so that it will freely rotate to map out x, y and z coordinates as you move it around a magnetic source.

Note: Avoid contacting other magnets. If you do so by accident, detach the Magnaprobe by holding its magnet. Do not simply pull back with the handle as you may ruin the device.

Another neat application is how we used a Mark II Magnaprobe to detect eddy currents in this blog: Eddy Current Copper Tube Drop Tower Brake Test.
