The mini-humbucker has one bar magnet under each coil, with adjustable polepieces made out of a ferrous alloy; the other coil contains a ferrous metal bar that is not adjustable.

And the Firebird pickup traditionally has a bar magnet in each coil. Each coil is wound around a bar magnet, one coil is south up and the other is north up. Also the magnetic field shape and size are slightly different between the mini-humbucker and the Firebird mini humbucker.

mini-humbucker has a smoother attack with more sustain. And the traditional Firebird mini humbucker pickups have a tighter, spankier tone with more defined even when you crank up your amp.
