I just wound the two coils of a precision pup, 10,000 turns each, and one has DC resistance of 5.9K, the other 6.6K.
what gives? and should I care?
Did you solder the leads then take readings ?
"Pushback" wire is ,Wire with a foreskin.
There's no short, didn't expect there to be one as I taped the mags and sprayed lacquer.
The first coil has been soldered. It was maybe 5.95 before soldering, 5.93 after, the second is still on the winder.
I'm guessing I stretched it, or maybe my improvised turn counter messed up. Can't decide whether to take some wire off or just leave it.
It's my first wind, and I'm pretty pleased with not breaking the wire and not getting a dead pick up at the end, so meh.
What counter sensor arrangement are you using? Were you winding faster on the second coil? Does the counter have a debounced setting for slower speeds?
I'd see if the current pair give you enough hum canceling but if these were mine I wouldn't hesitate to start over. I can't tell you off hand what a P coil at 10000 turns is supposed to measure but i don't think either measurement is out of the ballpark for 42AWG.
Well I scrapped the hot one, and wound another that came out just under 5.8.
Put them in my bass, and literally no noise at all. Amazing, especially when compared to the jazz pup at the bridge as a non-cancelling reference.
This is very much a made in my kitchen kind of project. By good fortune the pick up sounds great.
Yeah, calculator, reed switch
Hey heres an idea, Were the TPL the exact same on both? If one had wider scatter its gonna read higher. Pickups 101.....
I think the "problem" is almost certainly related to the counter missing some turns.
Glad the rewind got you consistent results and a great sounding pickup Kesh.
