“Several months ago I posted a review of the Ilictch noise cancelling coil and this is a followup post. I initially had it installed in a 5126 with TV Jones T-Armonds and it worked very well at suppressing hum associated with the single coil pickups but there was always a question as to whether or not it affected the frequency response. Today I had the pickups transferred to my 6120DS and the tech installed a temporary in/out switch so we could A/B the sound with the coil engaged and out of the circuit. We tried it in different locations in his shop , including the bench directly under the florescent lights next to the solder station, and through a couple of different amps. I am very happy to say that there was absolutely NO change in the frequency range of the pickups; no change in the tone at all in any register, low or high. The only change was the reduction of noise when the coil was engaged. Just thought I’d post this in response to this question that was on my mind and probably others’ as well.” -Roy
