so would i need to tap a low output bridge bucker like an alnico 2 wound to 8.8 to get quack age with a the middle single ?Yes! Tyler only splits the higher powered HB. Like the Super. So when it's split in number 2 it sounds like two SC. I've AB ed it to a SSS and it sounds really good!
even an Alnico 2 /8.8 bridge bucker ?im just not schooled on what the range of a middle single typically is wound to get it to matchNot imo. Depends how close you want. A hot bucker will sound a little better split, but still the position of either coil is wrong. The best sounding notch positions are from the old vintage strats, when both singles are similar output. So even a hotter bridge single coil, kinda ruins it to me.
While I'm not a JB fan, it did a pretty decent job when split to single mode. It's 16K ohm or something in series, but there are lots of variables.even an Alnico 2 /8.8 bridge bucker ?im just not schooled on what the range of a middle single typically is wound to get it to match
