Our pickups are available in many types of coil types. Here is the list of types:

Single

Stacked

Dual In-Line

Single Coil 

Our single coils have a deeper voicing with more lows and low midst ha traditional designs yet retain excellent clarity and treble response. Their noise level is considerably lower than unshielded traditional designs. Single coil:

Stacked (Vertical) Hum-canceller Single Coils 

In very narrow pickup shapes such as Jazz bass and our 3AV acoustic pickup model, the hum cancelling coil is stacked under the string sensing coil. Interaction between the staked coils results in sharper attack characteristics and lower output levels than our single coils. We recommend our stacked coil pickups for use with our active electronics. For 5 string basses, these pickups are limited to 72mm total string width.

Dual In-Line 

The dual in-line coils provide hum-canceling in a narrow size. These are often referred to as split coil.  They are a specific configuration of a split coil where the coils are in-line.  The 2 coils are internally wired in series.

Dual Coil Humbucker 

All dual coil pickups are wired with 4-conductor cable so that all coil combinations (series, parallel, or single) can be selected from a multi-pole switch on the front panel of your instrument.

Split Coil 

Split coil pickups are wired to hum cancel while each string is sensed by only a single coil. Our M type coil structure is a reverse P in a soapbar shape. The treble coil is positioned toward the neck. P bass pickups are independent split coils where the treble coil is generally positioned toward the bridge. The following glyph denotes a split coil arrangement but is not intended to specify the orientation.

Quad Coil 

Quad coil pickups are available in 2 different types: Parallel Hum-Cancelling and In-Line Hum-Cancelling.  


The Parallel type hum-cancels the way that a typical Dual Coil Humbucker does. Therefore, it can be wired as a P or reverse P and still provide hum-cancelling.  However, when split to act like an in-line single coil, they do not hum-cancel.  For simplicity, we wire these like a dual coil humbucker with 4-conductor cable, but leave the connections between in-line coils available for expert wiring. Expert installers may choose to wire these with 6 conductor cable for more options or re-wire the 4 conductor wiring to meet their needs.


The In-Line type hum-cancels between in-line coils. The model names for this contain 2CBJD or 2J.  These are wired with 4-conductor wire.  We do not expose the connection between the in-line coils on this type.
