What is the difference of a single coil and a dual coil pick-up?

When i bought my Emmons D10 Le Grande SKH in 1984 i had the steelguitar equipped with dual coil pickups.

I had to pay a little bit more than single coils.

I'm wondering what is the difference between single coil and dual coil?  Tone?? - Sustain???

At one time, Marc the dual coil pickups were standard, now the single coil is the norm. I have been told the single coil gives better tone than the dual coil and the sustain is better also. Jerry Wallace makes a single coil that is reasonably priced. The last time I checked they went for around $80.00 each. I had a Sho-Bud with the George L's E66 on the E9 neck that I paid over $100.00 for. Both of these are single coil pickups. I have a friend of mine that plays locally that had one of Jerry's single coil on his Legrande E9 neck and I was totally blown away by the tone, and the sustain,

J have installed BL-710 Pickups on my Emmons Lashley and J find the tone better than it was  with the original

Emmons Pickups:sustain is great-no hum when J push on the volume pedal.BL-710 pickups are humbuckers .

J beleived that the George's L E66 were humbucking pickups.J am surprised to know they are single coil pickups.
