Humbuckers.

that or noiseless single coils; they dont buzz, if they do, its very quiet. more to the point; without 60-cycle-hum which is found in true single coil pickups.

so like no feedback?

feedback is different; buzzing is the annoying buzzing you get, feedback is the screeching.

They are basically just humbuckers but the magnets are on top of each other rather than by the sides. They work on the same magnetic principle.
