Fat Stacks

Stacked Coil Humcancelling Soapbar pickups for 5, & 6 String sizes

These are a proprietary Nordstrand design. 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!

Standard spacing is 19mm ctc at the bridge.

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