Has anyone else ever heard this?
I head a wierd vocal effect on a song (I think it was by Brand New) and my friend told me it was because he was yelling into his pickups
does this work?
I'd try it, but my Grandma's staying over, not exactly an opprotune time
lol
but if it is possible, are there certain kinds of pickups that work better than others?

You can do it, but I think you need very high output pickups/active pickups.

There's been a gazillion threads on this, you know.

cool, I thought they only picked up string vibrations. I tried to scream into the pick-ups before but it didn't work for me :P

You have to have your amp up realllllllly loud, but yeah just yell into them and it should work. Ive done it a few times, though its hard to hear myself outta the amp cuz im yelling at my guitar...

They do... as the strings are metal. Or an electromagnetic field would do (phone noise your pickups anyone?)

However, if you happen to scream or make any noise which happens to be the resonant (natural) frequency of any of the strings, it will vibrate said string, creating an AC current within the pickup, due to the moving string and so the moving magnetic field.

And voila, screaming through pickups....

But then you will hear the sound from the string(s), not your own voice?
