In this video Dagan talks you through the main differences and tonal properties between 3 of the most popular pickups on the market - the Single Coil, the Humbucker and the P-90! Also how different kinds of magnets effect the tone and how the pickups themselves are put together!
How does a P90 differ from a Single Coil when they're both technically 'Single Coils'? Is a Humbucker just 2 single coils glued together, and how does it stop that single coil hum? What on earth is up with all these different kinds of magnets?! Dagan answers all these questions and more in this short informative video!
