What are the best pickups for using with a fuzz?

It seems to me the best pickups would be low output humbuckers.

With singles you get the hum and with high output pickups you get too much gain.

What fuzz? Fuzzface type - Vintage strat or tele pickups for traditional sounds. Muff it does not matter really.

I think you should be much more concerned about the type of fuzz pedal you're using.

strat plus marshall equals fuzz face (at least according to JHendrix)

I've got a ssh strat and the splat paints major sounds on my wall of thunder

Big muff type I do not think it matters much.
What I'm talking about is if it would be better to go with low output pickups rather than high output pups.

Jimi Hendrix and Jack White both used vintage low output pups.
