3 Angles

Do you think there is realitively a sound difference in an angled bridge humbucker vs a parallel one? As just a "theory" I think it actually brightens it up alittle ,but not very.The higher strings get alittle more punch as ( / ) and the lows visa versa as ( \ ). Leaving the parallel ( | ) being the setpoint as equal.Open to all opinions , what do you think about angles?...

Re: 3 Angles

Interesting thought, but I would imagine it would be a pain in the neck to make an angled humbucker - one of the bobbins would need to be shifted forward a little bit on the base plate to compensate for the angle in order to keep the pole pieces relatively well aligned, which means that you wouldn't get such a neat job when taping the coils etc. You'd also need to manufacture custom base plates or redrill them to compensate for the difference is screw positioning. Maybe there's a niche market there waiting to be exploited! ;o) It would sure be cool to make humbuckers with more bite without resorting to winding one of the coils hotter than the other though.

Cheers,

Dave

but not to just install it that way -

there were quite a few mid-late-80s axes that had the bridge humbucker installed like that.

Re: 3 Angles

Wow, cool. Looks totally off the wall! Is that angled bucker on the 410 polepieces or blades? I can't tell because of the covers on the pickups. It looks mad but really cool. I wonder what it sounded like......

Cheers,

Dave

Re: 3 Angles

as you can see in those pictures the straight hums are alittle closer due to the angles of the others ie.410.I would figure they would be poles,but not 100% sure.Modern day "super-strats" are straightly figured hums and i've always wondered why in HSS.
