Mystic Re: How to interpret resonance freq.
Probably a mismatch between the coils. It's hard to get two that match perfectly.

"Probably a mismatch between the coils."  
Hard to believe I didn't mention that one since mismatched buckers are my bread and butter.
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.

>>Is this Artie from the Duncan Forum?  
Yup. ;-) If Ampage had a "vault", this would belong there. Thanks again. Great info.  
(Not sure what happened with that previous reply.)

"* Pole piece thickness: I've found that the larger heads on the Gibson pole pieces give a beefier tone than the poles with the smaller Duncan-size heads. This also applies to rod magnets, up to a point -- if they're a little thicker, the magnetic field is wider and you'll get a little more beef."
Yes, and also the bigger the poles the higher the inductance.
