Hey
I've done a search, but it didnt come up with anything useful to my question.

I've noticed, through live videos of some bands on youtube, and through experimentation, guitar pickups can pick up voice sounds.
I have some spare pickups lying around. And a copper tube.
Is is possible to wire up the pickups to a cable with a jack out, and mount them in the copper tube, creating like a pipebomb mic type thing?

If so, will it be crap?

thanks

I have a suspicion that it will sound like crap no matter the quality he pickups. If you wanted a really weird tone then go for it but I would personally just buy a decent mic.

I've already got a decent enough mic for normal vocals, I'm just looking for a different tone. I'm not sure why, but I'm thinking this might give like a distant, slightly distorted effect?

You might be right...you prolly want some decent output pickups for it though.

ok
I've got a set of 3 single coils that arent being used, i was gonna give it a try with them, and see what happens.
How would i go about wiring them up? I'm pretty new at the electronics side of things, and I need a guide or pointers or anything really about wiring them up.

I'm not quite sure because of the fact that it isn't setup like it would be in a guitar. I don't think it would be that hard though.

you need some pretty microphonic pickups, maybe, if theyre potted, unpot them

they do if they are microphonic, your amp has alot of gain, and you scream directly into the pickup.
