You ask a basic question about sound on here and man, I get lost after a few e-mails. People start talking about measuring the resistance and inductance of their basses. Talking about their pickups being low output or low impedance. "measure DC resistance between 8k and 10k. If you're measuring a soapbar dual coil in parallel, the DC ohms measurement will be half." ?????? What the hell? I'm a bass player and play the bass (and have been for years), I really don't know what all this stuff is or means? Where do you guys get all this knowledge? I feel like a novice all over again....... Is it useful to know (if so, please give me any tips on where I can study up on it) or is it just a way to TRY to win discussions?
