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.
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. Get one today!
Also available with Alnico III magnets
Alnico III magnets differ from Alnico V in that they are warmer with a softer character. Think of them like a 60’s J style sound taken even further down the warm and fat path. Alnico V by contrast is brighter, cleaner and punchier, and will have a more wiry, stringy character. As another example, we’d recommend Alnico III for fretless or a fat 60’s Jaco type thing and Alnico V is great for a modern slap type thing or an R & B sound.
Please Note:Nordstrand supplies chrome screws with their pickups. If you require black or gold screws, we carry them on our pickup screws page.
