a simple hum question...

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by Da Funk Docta, Sep 1, 2004.


  1. If i wired my jazz bass that has Ultra jazz's so that it could switch between series/parallel, if the neck is in series and the bridge is in parallel, then would it hum? if it does hum... is it super super irritateing? is it solveable by copper shielding in the control cavity?
    thanks alot
    ps: sorry for posting so much latley... i just have alot of questions :)

    No reason why it should hum.
    FWIW, I've found the opposite to be a more usable sound - neck parallel, bridge series.
