An electric trumpet setup

Here's another complex audio/electronic setup. Ben Neill's "mutantrumpet", which has 3 bells, two sets of valves, midi controllers, 3 laptops, controlling video and audio. I'm particularly interested in the pickup and the pitch-to-midi converter, seeing as I bought a Little Jake a few weeks ago and am still working on getting it fully up and functional. He describes the sound coming from the leadpipe mic as being "like you're inside the instrument", and doesn't use it for audio, rather just for pitch, from which I'd gather that the sound isn't that nice/useful, at least as compared to a bell mic, which he also has.
