JBL and Electro Voice. JBL and Electro Voice speakers are additional important American speakers. Unlike Jensens, JBL's and EV's are very powerful sounding (they have large voice coils and resonance frequencies around 50 Hz), and can handle a lot of volume. The JBL's were well known for their aluminum dust covers, and some of the early EV's came that way too (I think the purpose of the aluminum was to help extend the frequency response). The 12" JBL d120f's were famously paired with the Fender Twin Reverb for blues and jazz. The 15" JBL d130f was also a great speaker for the Vibroverb. Electro Voice speakers are mostly popular with heavy metal players. The original Mesa Boogie amplifiers were known for having a single EVM 12L speaker.
This new style of pickup inadvertently gave birth to a new sound to guitars. The single coil pickup still is in wide use today. The single coil pickup has a cleaner or brighter sound. There is also less output on the single coil in comparison to its brother, the humbucker. The double coil or humbucking pickup tends to have more power and will have more bottom end or a bassier sound. Which pick is better is a matter of personal choice. Both of these picks have advantages and disadvantages.
Of course, many factors affect the eventual sound of the note, in addition to simply how hard the string is plucked. The thickness and manufacture of the string, how close it is to the body, the body's shape and design, the type of pickup, the number of pickups, to name just a few. Once the signal reaches the amplifier, all manner of different effects and distortions are possible to create an individual voice for the instrument.
The cables going between the floor effects pedals should be as short as possible. They make some as short as six inches, with nice flexible wires which makes the connection between pedals easy. You can get hung up on how fancy they are. My experience for this part of the signal chain is that new cables are better than old ones. So pick ones that connect your pedals easily, and then replace them periodically. One of your floor pedals might require a battery. That can be a good thing- it can help keep your signal strong on its way to the amp.
