Just got back from a band rehearsal, and I gotta say that the single coil hum is driving me nuts. Don't know if it was the overhead flourescents or something else, but it was really annoying (this is on a brand new GL Jazz thru a new SWR 12 combo). So... it got me thinking about trying a humbucker again. Honestly, every dual coil/humbucker I've played did nothing for me tonewise. Thick, boomy, just not to my taste. I gigged exclusively with my steinberger for years due to its practicality, but I never used it in the studio due to its tone. Am I just playing/trying the wrong humbucking basses? There are a few notable exceptions I can think of, like the Wals of the 80s, which seemed to get the kind of mids/'quacky' tone I shoot for. I just followed a youtube link here to a MM and it sounded pretty good, I must admit. Basically, are there any duals out there that can deliver the Jazz's single coil growl/bite/burp? Or am I deluded? And yes, I plan on playing as many as I can this weekend, both at mom and pop stores and the local GC.
