    Default SD 7 string pickups

    I have been using SD 7 string pickups for a very long time but always wondered if they wind their 7 string versions of their pickups differently to compensate for the low B or if they just wind them the same as their 6 string counterparts. Anyone know?

    I've read the product descriptions on a couple of them and I think they are bit different.
    "There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution." - John Adams

    Perhaps it's just the size of the coil for the extra string that makes the difference...

    If a pickup has, say, 4,000 turns on a regular 6 string, there maybe 4,000 on the 7 but, because it's that little bit longer it may have the effect of deepening the tone.

    This is just a guess.
