In the early 1930s in Japan, alloys of iron, nickel and aluminum were found to display twice the strength of the best steel magnets of the time. Cobalt was soon found to be a useful addition to the mix, as cobalt alloys are highly corrosion-resistant. Iron alloys that contain alnico display a high resistance to heat and to loss of magnetism, and are hence used to make strong and durable permanent magnets.
Alnico alloys make for very strong, long-lasting magnets.
Given their strength and durability, alnico alloys were consequently adopted for widespread consumer applications in which magnets with such properties were especially useful, such as electric motors, sensors, loudspeakers, etc.
And electric guitar pickups. At its simplest, an electric guitar pickup consists of a permanent magnet wrapped in coils of wire, so it stands to reason that high-quality magnets such as those containing alnico would make for high-quality guitar pickups. And that they did — alnico-magnet pickups were found to produce a smooth, warm and highly musical tone.

There are a lot of components that go into shaping the character of a pickup's sound. Everything from the gauge of the wire, the amount of turns, the pitch of the winding, whether it's wax potted and one of the most important elements, the magnet.
The size and type of magnet you use in your pickup has a big influence on the sound that the pickup produces, as does the type of wire: how thick it is, how it's insulated, how it's wound around the bobbins, how many turns of wire. Then there are the pole pieces: different materials there can also affect the magnetic field in different ways.
AOMAG Magnetics has alnico rods and bars, as well as ceramic bars for the use in guitar pickups. Many different sizes are provided. Besides, we could produce per your needs.
