Re: How Is Inductance of Pickup Measured?
In musical terms, Q does have an effect if the resonant frequency (including the capacitance of the cable to the amp) in low enough to have an audible effect. Broadly, the lower the Q, the wider and flatter the resonance, so it will affect the overall ratio of highs to mids and lows. The details are, as always with pickups, a bit complex.
