Big Single 4 Neck

These pickups are all about huge, full, loud, aggressive single coil tone.

They use the same magnet layout as the Fat Stack, and the resultantly big coil is about as much single coil pickup that can be packaged in a soap-bar cover.

This is the ultimate pickup for the Jazz Bass®-on-steroids tone purist!

Standard spacing is 19mm ctc at the bridge.

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.

Nordstrand 4 string Big Single pickup
By kostas Hasopoulos from on 1/17/2014
so the Pickup arrive, and may i say very in time. Very quick responce and shipping from the guys at BestBassGear. The pickup arrived in an ultra protective packaging which is so nice. The pickup sounds GREAT! a lot of aggresiveness, nice depth through the bass and middle freq. and is killer for a slap tone.(that one i was far away from with my previous pickup)

Only thing i would change would be the screws.the heads are destroyed when you turn the screw.
