bassman Posted May 11, 2005 Report Share Posted May 11, 2005 I have ordered the parts to make several jazz bass pickups. However I plan on making both the neck and bridge pickups individually humcanceling. If I connect a pair of RP/RW coils (within a standard jazz pup casing) what resistance would I need to wind each coil (which will cover 2 of 4 strings) to acheive a total pickup resistance (of each pickup that) of 8k for the neck and 8.5 for the bridge? My experience with speakers tells me that the individual coils will be wired in series with another (for one pickup), so I believe that two coils in series-each at 4k ohms- will create a pickup with a 8kohm resistance. I am pretty sure about this, it is just the fact that I will be handwinding these that tells me I better do it right the first time- four hand wound coils for one bass- ouch! Furthermore, I plan on using the standard wiring for jazz controls, volume,volume,tone (bt with a .100 cap instead of .05). Will these humcanceling jazz pups potentially interact different with each other and the planned controls than single coil pickups? Thanks for your time and very informed responses.
