This arrangement reduces hum - much like when both pickups on the jazz bass are turned on.

Magnetic PickupsMagnetic pickups only respond to steel strings. When the string is plucked, alternating current is induced in a coil of wrapped wire. There are two main types of magnetic pickups: single coil and humbucker. Single coils are susceptible to interference from other electrical equipment and may produce a feedback loop. Humbuckers are designed with two opposing coils which cancels out interfering noise. Most guitars used a combination of two or three electric pickups. For example, Fender Telecasters and Fender Stratocasters use multiple single coils, while Gibson Les Pauls use multiple humbuckers. Each combination has a unique sound. Piezoelectric PickupsTraditionally used on acoustic instruments, these pickups are becoming more common on electric guitars. They work with any kind of string. Piezo pickups will not hum or cause feedback loops because they do not pick up interfering magnetic fields. However, they have a completely different sound than magnetic pickups. Some guitars use a combination of piezo and magnetic to create a blended sound.

No they are not. There are many different types of pickups that have all types of different shapes. Single coil pickups, traditionally found on fender guitars are, to compare with an every day object, about the size of a lip balm stick. These pickups sound bright and snappy. There are two main types of single coil pickups, telecaster shape and stratocaster shape. The difference resides in the mounting method, and hence the guitar body need to be routed accordingly P 90 pickups are old single coils coil typically found on vintage style Gibsons. They are known to be warmer than fender single coils. These pickups come in two variant: the "regular" and "dog ear", which once again require different routings. A P 90 pickups is about the size of an eraser. Mini humbuckers are miniaturized humbuckers with a brighter sound, they are very similar in shape to "regular" P 90s, and retrofitting them is relatively easy. Lastly there are humbuckers. These pickups are very popular and their sound is warmer than most other pickups. They are about 1 inch by 2 inches in dimention. Nearly all humbuckers have the size, save for some that are slightly larger to accomodate the larger string spacing of Floyd Rose bridges. There are other types of pickups with different dimentions, but these are the main ones.

The vibrations of the instrument's metal strings within the magnetic field of the permanent magnets in magnetic pickups produce small variations in the magnetic flux threading the coils of the pickups. This in turn produces small electrical voltages in the coils. These low-level signals are then amplified and played through a speaker. You can change the pickups to your choice but it is finding a bass that have a sound you like is remmonded for students.

Gibson Les Paul would be my first choice, followed by a Fender Stratocaster, Gibson SG, and Fender Telecaster (with dual humbucker pickups). These were are still are the most popular guitars in Rock music it also depends because a strat might not be super because of the single coils(except if you change them to humbuckers)

The Epiphone Casino comes with two "dog ear" p90 pickups, in the bridge and neck position. P90 are single coil pickups, know for their fatter sound compared to other single coils.

if you mean the difference between Gibson and Strat pickups then i can tell you Gibson Humbuckers have two coils inside offering a deeper sound and richer tone

in my opinion yes they are. compared to single coils they do exactly what it's name says. they have a clear, warm, sharp tone. single coils are dark, muffled and are good when they are in the right guitars. but humbuckers are very good sounding pickups. but remember some are a lot cheaper than others so they might have a vary in quality.

An overwound pickup (or humbucker) is a term that is used for pickups that receive more wounds to their coils, hence making them hotter. The more wounds a coil has the louder the pickups get. Usually, people refer to this as being "hot". While the pickups get louder with more wounds, the resonent peak of the pickups is also lowered. The result is usually that a hot pickup is darker, and a low output one a bit brighter.

single coils are made by winding wires round poles, the more winds the higher the output, humbuckers are made by placing two single coils together with reverse polarity which cancels guitar hum

I never found that much of a difference in 36 years of playing. You get tone by setting tone electronically, technique you use to play (pluck, pick, slap, etc.). What kind of strings you use (flat wound, round wound, tape wound, etc.) What kind of shape the strings are in (new, dead, etc.). As Leo Fender stated in interview the Jazz bass was just the "deluxe" version of the precision bass. He wasn't even a player. Enough of this big difference between the Fender precision bass and jazz bass. If you put one of each in front of me I would take the one that was the most playable as long as we are not talking about one of the original j basses with the concentric volume/tone controls. MK

if it is a v-8 then it is on top of the distributor. if other engine then probably on one ofe the fender skirts

as for the 720 having 2 coils one runs the intake side and the other runs the exaust side even though they wire into one dist cap being a 4 cylinder with 8 plugs 4 on intake and 4 on exaust

A fat strat refers to a strat that has a humbucker pickup, which pretty much looks like two single coils smushed together on a guitar

Single coil pickups, as found in most fender guitars, have a bright, snappy and spanky sound. A good example of single coil tone are old surf rock song. Single coils are known for their piercing treble in bridge position and bright, yet woody tones in the neck. Traditional single coils are plagued with the problem of 60 cycle hum when playing at high volumes or with distortion Humbuckers, on the other hand, were designed to combat the hum of single coils, hence the name. Humbuckers are much fatter than single coils, and they have a much lower resonant peak. They usually handle high gain distortion much better than single coils, and are a must for heavy music. Their fatness, especially in the neck position also makes them great for a variety of styles such as jazz, blues, etc.

single coils (used on stratocasters and telecasters) humbuckers (eg. les pauls, used by placing two single coils together to cancel hum) p90/soapbar (sort of like a half way point between the above) emg (high output used for alot of metal)

well.. if their both say humbuckers that look idenical i dont see why not although theres a few different sizes. single coils will only work on fender or ibanez gutiars (lets say) equipped with them and active pickups will only work if theres active gear inside the guitar. be sure to do a bit of research before, I didn't know the difference between a 7 string pickup and a 6 string , but now i know way more. Trick to that is to count the holes or metal nail looking things on the pickup. 6 = a 6 string pickup.. 7 - a 7 string ..ect.

Fender are a very classic company. Their models dont change very frequently. The telecaster is a versitle guitar with usually two single coil pickups that give out a country twang or a big alternative crunch. I can find that i can get a very heavy sounding, not metal like, but full. These are not as comfortable as the next guitar, the Stratocaster. They have three single coils and a 3-5 way switch. With this comfortable guitar, you can get many tones for many many genres of music. I would say if you go for alternative and also like to play some other genres sometimes, the fender strat would be for you. As for ibanez, they are also versitle but are better suited to stay in the rock/metal category. The height on the strings are very low making it easy to play fast and play powerchords but they dont handly regular chords too well. I find that on some the lower frets buzz a bit when playing a chord. But the pickups are humbuckers and are more beefy then that of the fender. Ibanez are also cheaper than the fenders. You can get a very nice and nice playing fender which is bottom of the line for the same price as a almost top of the line ibanez. All in all, it all depends on your price range your in. Cheaper- buy the ibanez, A little more money- go for the fender.

A guitar pickup uses a magnet and coil (either single or double) to generate a small electrical current when the strings are plucked. This creates a disruption in the magnetic field which is interpreted by the amplifier. This describes a "passive" pickup. The signal is sent this way. Active pickups simply use an on-board pre-amplifier that, when used with the coils, boosts the signal down the path to the amp. Basically it gives the signal a push. Active pickups are great but the quality of the sound depends a lot upon the quality of the preamp.

Two coils two spark plugs are under the coils and the other two are next to the coils

What holds coils of what down to what?

I just went through removing the Ignition Control Module and Coils for testing. There are two coils which sit on top of the ICM. One is responsible for firing cylinders 1-4 and the second is responsible for firing cylinders 2-3. The 1993 Cavalier has a Direct Ignition System (DIS) or Electronic Ignition. 1 12... I put 12 on mine and got 27% increased gas mileage which in 2 months offset the cost2 coils if it dose not hava a disterber cap

They are under the coils.They are under the coils.

There is a total of 4 ignition coils.

A snake does not have actual coils but is able to coil its body.
