Explain induction recording

<< < (10/10)

I've had great success removing the suction cup from one of my pickups and gluing a rare earth magnet to it. No interference either.

How Bowers says it was Mike Lee who thought of using a Radio Shack telephone pickup to record a speaker's magnetic field.  Is that correct?

Not sure but I was doing it back in 1974. I believe that's when my earliest tape was recorded. I believe I recorded Peoplemover, Haunted Mansion and Adventure Thru Inner Space in that first tape. Awwww the memories.

I saw someone was using an Edirol/Roland R-09 and had good results and there was an inexpensive one on eBay, so that’s where I’m starting. Now to find a suction cup . . .

Is there a list anywhere of easily accessible speaker locations? Feel like that could be helpful instead of everyone having to hunt for a signal on their own each time as they visit the parks.
