Default 1987 BT6 G & C strings "tinny" sounding

So I have a set of Tapercore Mediums on it, as suggested, but those top two strings are still less "round" sounding than the other 4. It's been suggested (elsewhere) that I play with the pickup poles.

Is this adviseable? If so, how to go about it? 3mm Allen wrench is what I need for that? Do I want the poles closer to or farther away from the strings?

Thanks in advance for your help.

3mm for the poles yes BUT, it is hard to tell you what to do as this is done from seeing it first hand.
