#2: “Understanding Impedance: The Three Hurdles”

Clyde Clark, President of Bartolini Pickups and Electronics, explains Impedance and its importance for pickups and all your on-board and off-board electronics. Impedance consists of Resistance, Capacitance, and Inductance. As the frequency from your output changes, the amount of impedance for Capacitance and Inductance changes

The Tradition and Technology Video Series is Clyde’s mission in life- to fully enlighten people to the true technology behind electric guitars and basses. There is a wealth of tradition and popular beliefs out there; much of it is very helpful, and some…well, maybe not so much. Clyde takes the most important topics and explains the traditions and then breaks down the actual technology in an easy to understand way- we want you to maximize your knowledge and your tone!  Clyde has been a professional engineer for over twenty years and he is also a musician.
