    I have no idea what you are driving at. I've indicated the mechanisms for hum. I've also built a pickup.
     
  2. Then you will know this.

    Single coils pass mains hum to your amp.

    But shielding will help reject RFI hum, which is nothing to do with pole pieces. People confuse grounding issues with RFI. Shielding fully for RFI is possible but difficult and it's easier to use additional coils, but pole pieces don't play a part in the equation.

    Wrap a length of copper wire through the metal ball ends of the strings, tape the other end to the metal bridge on the bass or control plate...grounded!
     
  6. Ball ends on tapes are metal so contact is made with the metal bridge already.

    Years ago some bright spark thought running a ground from the bridge would be a good idea,it caught on as you'll be hard pushed to find a bass without one :thumbsup:

    Exception. Wishbass, Stephan-W uses corian for his bridges. Course in the spirit of things I swapped one for mahogany.
    Stuck tapes on it too for good measure.

    I don't think this would make any difference, the ball ends already make solid contact with the bridge. Tapewound strings will not let you ground the bass because they are non conductive.

    P.S. Part of the humbucking sound is both coils having magnets in. You can create humbuckers with a single coil sound by removing the slugs on one side. I'm currently doing a build with splittable humbuckers so there's a lot of shielding but I'm not going as far as wrapping slug tape around the coils nor adding metal covers.

    I am planning to put a hi mass bridge on PJ-75, does anyone already have experience with that, what would be a recommendation s?

    I put a Fender Himass in my PB Shorty, and am putting one on my PB50 over the weekend. I've got another that I'm planning to put on a JB75. (I like the Fender Himass) Mine all fit right in to the existing holes.

    That's the same bridge I have on my Fender Active Precision Deluxe (the surf green one). Really like it. Not too expensive to buy separately on Amazon

    Welcome!

    Numbers haven't been added for quite a while. There was a sign we might get some soon:
    Maybe we can take a page from The Mediocre Bassist Club, and give everyone the same number... 8675309, pi, 25or6to4, or something.
