They can take many forms, down to a simple ferrite bead on a wire.

That would work if the stethoscope's pickup is small. Or you
could use a 'microphone probe', a small mic with an acoustic
tube fitted.

Another practical trick is this. You need a small wooden
stick - it should be light, hard, and of course non-conducting.
A wooden match or toothpick would do. Use it to *lightly* touch
the component you suspect. This should change the sound, and
you may also feel it with your fingers.
