Okay I found BGmicro has a good price on reed switches + shipping. Does anyone know of any cheaper places to buy reed switches?

Hall effect sensors would be a better buy..  Much more reliable, better detection at speed and much less prone to smashing.

Don't say that, all good things (not people) are made in 80s.
Second thought, that applies to music only... and that's only my opinion. No offence sir!

Then we are doing just fine! You never know...
Oops, off topic.... back to original subject.

How about inductive pickups? They creat sine wave, and needs pulse wheel, maybe opamp... but they are also sometimes used in these.
