I don't really remember, so I'll ask
what are some of the tonal qualities of reversing pickups
(perhaps a 180 degree turn of them)

well, IIRC no tone differance. In certain cases it can help prevent hum and/or phasing issues.

If your bass has one pick-up, it will probably do nothing.

If your bass has two-pick ups, and you do it to one pick-up, it will probably create a lot of hum and feedback.

If you bass has 2 pick-ups and you do it to both them, it will probably do nothing.

Like what the other posts have said it depends on kind of pickups you have.
I'm going to infer that you may mean the tonal characteristics of the physical postion of the pickup in relation to the strings.
If it's a p-style pickup, hmmm
well
I'm not sure honestly
hmm after just thinking about it for a few minutes I'm not sure it would affect anything as far "tone".
I think more likely it would effect the dynamic levels of each string.

But for j style, I don't it will do anything at all.

I don't even think it would change the dynamics of string balance at all... unless we're talking about a 1957-1961 p-bass pickup. Balance depends on the pickups' hieght and tilt.

ah thanks for this posting this bit of info.
I know that the balance is based on height and tilt
I was wondering if the actual positioning would affect dynamics.
And I have to say I'm not really familiar with '57-'61 p-bass pickups.

the poles on the A string were raised for better balance. That's it. Otherwise, it's identical to the 62's.

Well, my pick up configuration is a P and a J
I don't really want to do anything, but was just curious on turning the P

hmm.
but yeah, just curiosity
