NJ4 70's
70's Set $164.00
70's 7.25"R Set $164.00

Description

This is a vintage single coil j style pickup made with 60’s era correct heavy formvar wire and alnico v magnets. In winding these pickups Nordstrand uses a simulated hand wound pattern that lowers the resonant peak of the pickup resulting in a pleasing yet present high end.

These pickups have a very even and full sound with that snap and grind associated with the classic basses of that time.

This pickup is available with an alternative “70′s wind” featuring enamel wire and have less winds than the 60′s version.

This results in a clearer more open sound with less midrange warmth that is more reminiscent of the marcus miller type of tone.

NJ4 7.25"R set is same as NJ4 standard set except that these are built for vintage instruments with a tight fingerboard radius of 7.25". Poles on A and D strings are raised to accomodate these basses.

Includes black covers (exposed pole pieces), and pickup screws.

NJ4SE
Set $240.00
Neck $121.00
Bridge $121.00

Description

NJ4SV

These are a split coil hum canceling design. this pickup is designed to have a tone as close as possible to the nj4 single coils. They have a similar clarity and bottom, and have a good clean growl with the same interactive quality that all our alnico pickups are known to have.

NJ4SE

These are a split coil hum cancelling design. They use the same hand wound pattern found on our nj4′s but with a finer wire called 43 gauge enamel.

The natural character of this design is to have a more pronounced lower midrange, and a slightly muted high end. this makes them exceptionally suited to fingerstyle players who are going for a solo bridge pickup sound with good “bark” and “heft.”

Both pickups are also totally humcancelling, and great for commonly noisy live situations.

NJ4SV 7.25"R set is same as NJ4SV standard set except that these are built for vintage instruments with a tight fingerboard radius of 7.25". Poles on A and D strings are raised to accomodate these basses.

Includes black covers (exposed pole pieces), and pickup screws.

Nordstrand Precision Bass ® Pickups

NP4 $123.00

NP4-A $123.00

Description

NP4

The Nordstrand NP4 is a faithful reproduction of one of the most famous pickups in the world. It will give you a very big and full tone with a slightly hollow grind that the originals are known for.

Includes Black Covers (Exposed Pole Pieces)

NP4V

The NP4V is a vintage correct version of the classic Precision Bass ®. It provides a sligthly smoother tone than the NP4.

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.

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!

NP5 $131.00

Description

NP5

Nordstrand's twist on a five string p pickup. They angled the poles like they do on their signature big single series of pickups for a couple reasons. They get more room for wire between the magnets and the cover edge, and it think it looks cool!

The result is as close to an authentic p tone in a four string sized cover package and we believe is possible. Roger sadowsky thinks so too…

Includes Black Covers (Exposed Pole Pieces)

NP5V

The NP5V is a vintage correct version of the classic Precision Bass ®. It provides a sligthly smoother tone than the NP5.

Description

MM 4.2

This pickup is an accurate reproduction of an early pre-Ernie Ball ® Music Man ® pickup.

It uses the same wire, the same magnets, and has the exact same DC Resistance.

As a result, it sounds just like the early Music Man ® basses that are so widely coveted.

Includes Black pickup cover (Exposed pole pieces)

MM 4.3

The MM4.3 will drop into a Music Man Sterling ® or other 3-way switched installation, and features a dummy coil on the bottom for silent single coil mode.

Like the MM4.2, the MM4.3 features Alnico V magnets and Heavy Forvar wire for an authentic early pre-Ernie Ball ® tone - punchy, growly, and fat.

Includes Black pickup cover (Exposed pole pieces)

Please Note:

The MM 4.3 is a direct replacement on MusicMan basses with a tri-coil only. The MM 4.3 cannot be installed on basses that do not already utilize a Tri-Coil Music Man ® pickup.

MM 4.4

The MM 4.4 is the pickup to use if you want all the switching options.

Each row of magnets is actually 2 split coils(2 magnets each), so the pickup can be split and remain hum cancelling in any configuration.

Front coil, rear coil, series, parallel… this pickup has all the basses covered.

Nordstrand 4-String Fat Stack

Set $216.00
Neck $109.00
Bridge $109.00

Description

Fat Stack 4

The traditional bi-pole magnet layout was, literally, twisted in a new direction. By rotating the pole 45 degrees for each set we have increased the size of the traditional J style coil by 50%, making it wider, or “fatter”. this results in a larger aperature, which captures more harmonic content from the string, resulting in a “fatter” tone.

These pickups have a tone reminiscent of a J style single coil, but they are bigger and bolder. Full range and a present but pleasant high end response.

These pickups have a great deal of midrange detail and fullness. Due to the naturally lower output of this design, these pickups can sometimes benefit from a pre-amp with 3 or more db of gain.

These pickups are shipped with three conductor wire for a split-able installation. When the third lead is shorted to ground only the top coil will remain active for a louder, more aggressive and mean version of the fat tone these pickups deliver (albeit with 60 cycle noise that single coils inherently possess).

Think of it as a turbo charger for tone!

Description

NJ5

The NJ5 is a 5-String version of the same style and build as the NJ4. Featuring Alnico V magnets and the same winding pattern, these are very fat sounding with plenty of growl, and bark.

This pickup is also available with the alternative "70's wind" featuring enamel wire and less winds than the 60's version. This results in a clearer more open sound with less midrange warmth that is more reminiscent of the Marcus Miller style of tone.

The NJ5 12" Radius set is intended for bass with fingerboard radius if 12".

The NJ5 set consists of two 'long' sized pickups that are the exact same dimensions. Please check the physical size of the pickups you want to replace to make sure the replacements fit properly.

NJ5F

The NJ5F is the Fender Jazz 5 ® replacement pickup. They are based on the same formula that makes the NJ4 pickups sound so good. Alnico V Magnets, and Heavy Formvar 42 gauge wire wound in a simulated hand pattern.

They have a nice growly bridge pickup tone, a big full neck tone, and a huge deep earth shaking tone with both pickups on full. They will definitely make your bass sound better!

The NJ5F set consistions of a 'long' bridge sized pickup, and a 'short' neck sized pickup. Please check the physical size of the pickups you want to replace eot make sure the replacements fit properly.

NJ5S

These are a split-coil humcancelling design of the NJ5. This pickup set has as closed to a true single coil sound as possible.

They have a similar clarity and bottem end, and posses a nice clean growl with the same interactive quality that all Nordstrand Alnico pickups are known for.

NJ5SE

These are a split-coil humcancelling design of the NJ5. They utilize the same hand winding pattern as found on the NJ4, but utilize a finer wire called 43 gauge enamel.

The natural character of this design is to have a more pronounced lower midrange, and a slightly muted high end. This makes them exceptionally suited to fingerstyle players that who are going for a solo bridge pickup sound with good "bark" and "heft". Totally humcancelling and great for commonly noisy live situations.

NJ5FS

These are a split coil humcancelling design of the NJ5f for Fender Jazz 5 ®. This pickup has as close to the tone of the NJ5F as possible.

They have a similar bottom end and clarity, along with a good clean growl with the same interactive quality that all Nordstrand Alnico pickups possess.

Bring your Fender Jazz 5 ® to life with these silent Jazz pickups.
