Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9841972A1] The invention relates to a sound pickup selector device (1) for a string instrument such as an electric guitar, comprising several pickups (14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19). The inventive device includes a selector device (12) which can be actuated and which is designed to connect the coils (14a, 14b, 15a, 15b, 16a, 17a, 18a, 19a) of the sound pickups (14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19) in various combinations so that an output signal (S) of varying sounds can be produced. The inventive device further includes a voice signal generator (20) which produces a voice signal (Sp) indicating a given state depending upon an actual state in the selector device (12). The string instrument comprises a voice signal generator (20) providing vocal information on the states of said string instrument.
