J pickups are typically single-coil designs, although there are numerous humbucking designs. Traditionally, two of them are used, one near the bridge and one other nearer to the neck. As with the halves of P-pickups, the J-kind pickups are wired in a humbucking method so that, when used together, mains noise is greatly eliminated. J-kind pickups are inclined to have a lower output and a thinner sound than P-kind pickups. Many bassists mix a ‘J’ pickup at the bridge and a ‘P’ pickup on the neck and mix the two sounds.
