Nordstrand

Nordstrand pickups have become one of the most well respected manufacturers of pickups for bass in the world. Their forward thinking approach and unique signature designs allow you the player to have a wide variety of options to create your own unique and satisfying tone.

Their pickups are built on a vintage paradigm. They are not what one would consider a modern hi-fi approach that commonly utilize closed cover, or strictly rail/blade build approach. Each pickup is handwand on their machines, built with a removable cover with most models utilizing Alnico V magnets, and most are built with exposed pole piece construction and built with spacing to satisfy most instruments. They are also able to custom manufacture pickups in spacing to suit your desires on your own custom build.

They offer the basic 3 commonly known styles of pickups for Jazz Bass, P-bass and MusicMan basses, but also have sizes in Bartolini BC, P2, P4, and EMG sizes in EMG 35, 40, and 45.

The standard offerings of the common pickups include those for 4 and 5-Strings in Single Coil and Split-Coils for Jazz Bass and P-bass and Dual, Quad-Coil, and even the O.E Tri-Coil for MusicMan basses.

They also have their own signature line that utilize the Bartolini and EMG shapes and include the massive Big Single, muscular Big Split, complex Dual Coil, unique Fat Stack, and even a new design for those that prefer a rail/blade approach with the Dual Blade Neo models. These pickups are built in 4, 5, and 6-String configurations and can be custom spaced depending on the model for your build.

Nordstrand pickups can be found on such high end boutique builders including Sadowsky, Valenti, Roscoe, Modulus, Brubaker, Clement, Mayones, Mike Lull, Jerome Little, Overwater, New York Bass Works, SEI, Stambaugh, Wilkins, and Tino Tedesco. You can also find Nordstrand electronics on O.E manufacturers models from Ibanez, and Warwick as well.
