DESCRIPTION

NP4 Split Coil

Split Coil Humcancelling Precision Bass Pickups for 4 String Basses

Please check the physical size of the pickups you want to replace to make sure the replacements fit properly.

NP4

  • This is a faithful reproduction of one of the most famous pickups in the world.
  • It will give a very big and full tone with the slightly hollow grind that the originals are known for.
  • Includes black covers (exposed pole pieces).

NP4A

  • The NP4A is a unique P style pickup by any measure.
  • It takes the angled pole piece arrangement that Nordstrand is so well known for and applies it to one of the most traditional pickups ever and the result is familiar yet somehow unique.
  • This pickup has a broad and punchy character highlighted by a nice rich and focused midrange. It will fill the P role very well, but offers so much more in terms of versatility.
  • A simple passive tone knob used in conjunction with this pickup will reveal a wide range of very usable sounds with several sweet spots that are nothing short of inspiring.

NP4V

  • This is a vintage correct version of a classic pickup.
  • It will give a slightly smoother tone than our standard NP4.

Please Note:Nordstrand supplies chrome screws with their pickups. If you require black or gold screws, we carry them on our pickup screws page.

Great pickups!
By Chris from on 4/19/2017
 
Got these as a replacement for my Fender Roger Waters P bass. Bass comes stock with Duncan Quarter Pounders, which sounded awful. Mids way too scooped, boomy lows and harsh highs. The NP4 tamed the beast that is the Waters P and sound fantastic!

It has the great drive the P Bass is noted for, but no boominess or high and low spots. Slightly accentuated in low mids with hollow grind.

nordstrand pick up for fender p deluxe
By keith from on 1/15/2014
 
First time replacing pick ups in a bass. ...My pbass was very modern sounding, the Nordstrand melloed it out and made it sound deeper and thicker/richer.

Nordstrand NP4

This really is a great pickup. It absolutely nails the classic P-Bass tone. If you want something modern sounding maybe look elsewhere, but I was after that 60s P sound. I have it in a stndard P style bass with an alder body and maple neck with rosewood fingerboard, and it delivers in spades.
Highly recommended.
