    many hum-cancelling pu´s for 5string jazz basses use a split coil design (sadowsky/dimarzio/nordstrand...).

    but will all the hum be canceled even if the two coils are of different sizes (one for 2 strings and one for 3...)??

    thx, bench

    ...ich kenne zwei Pickups dieser Art: Die Nordstrands und die Fender/Suhr mit den einzelnen dicken PolePieces.
    Und bei beiden ist es so wie du vermutest: Der hum ist zum allergrößten Teil weg, aber nicht ganz...

    what I was saying is that I do know the Nordstrands and the old Fender/Suhr pickups with the single pole pieces, and both of them cancel most of the hum, but not 100% - I would say 90%...

    interesting: this applies for the single pickups, the hum is totally gone when used as a pair
