The CroMagnet is my version of an old-timey electromagnetic pickup. What differentiates this from the other microphones is the component itself: in lieu of a piezo transducer element, this pickup is constructed with an iron core, wound with a copper coil. The result is similar to a guitar pickup; anything that is magnetic becomes amplified. Terminated with approximately four feet of cable and a 1/8 inch minijack plug, the CroMagnet pickup is wrapped in tough heat shrink.

This pickup is designed for the experimental artist. It's a lofi device: maybe a tad buzzy (although not as bad as a single coil guitar pickup); it also might need a little gain/trim adjustment on your mixer. That said, the CroMagnet is a splendid workhorse and responds well when amplifying motors, bits of metal, fluorescent lamps, speakers (including telephone speakers), as well as ebows and electric toothbrushes! It comes with an extra magnet to play around with.
