scatter on a P90

GTarman scatter on a P90
Ok, since a P90 bobbin is so narrow, would it really make much differenve on the amount of scatter? I mean I guess you could go with more or less depending on the tone you want but, Will it really make an impact at all? I have tried it several ways and dont hear much if any difference at all.

I would think tension would be more important on a P90.
Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

Well, I don't wind P90's but I wind a similar size pu and the tightly wound ones just have a briter sound to me than the ones with less tension. Could be the wire stretch or more windings in a given space, not sure. I would'nt ignor scattering but like you said there's not much space in a short bobbin.

The vertical space in a P90 bobbin is the same as yoru typical humbucker bobbin.
