    i love humbuckers so i've done some searching and have found many for bass such as the bisonic, mudbucker, musicman style, and wide range. are there any other humbuckers that are worth noting?

    Any dual coil, split coil, or quad coil. Most all pickup companies make them.

    I'm highly opinionated and extremely self-assured
    Yes. Loads. More than I could fit into one post. Do some searches here and read all about ‘em. As @mmbongo said, any pickup with two coils, whether oriented side-to-side, back-to-back, end-to-end, or staggered, is technically a humbucker (as long as the two coils are wound RWRP).

    Point of note: the BiSonic and its modern interpretations have a single coil, so they are not humbuckers.

    What do you love about them? Humbuckers come in different designs and sound different. The only characteristic they share is that they buck hum :)
    TheMinutemen, line6man and ctmullins like this.

    Sidewinders are humbuckers too.

    My favorites are probably the Music Man variants that offer series/parallel switching, and the G&L MFD pickups.
