There is also a video on youtube by the "thomann" guys who claim there is no difference in hum if i recall correctly.
There are several videos in youtube about the subject.

Im not sure though if shielding plays an important factor when you are in a stage, next to PA's, Lights and other stuff that draw electricity.

It doesn't actually create a Faraday cage (the pickups are sticking up out of it!) but it will reduce but not completely eliminate extraneous signals and interference.
