Nordbacker - Rickenbacker Replacement

The classic Nordstrand Big Single is now available in Rickenbacker size, a drop-in replacement that fits without marring your bass. It even uses your stock pickup screws. Louder and more aggressive tones can now be found in your neck pickup to keep up with the gutsy stock bridge pickup. As an added bonus, with this Big Single your bass won't have 60 cycle hum when you run both pickups together.

Technical Details

  • Angled poles
  • Laser cut vulcanized fiber bobbins
  • Potted in a paraffin-beeswax mix to contain any unruly frequency that may attempt to desecrate your desired tone
  • Classic Big Single in Rickenbacker size
  • Slightly shorter magnet spacing, which makes for a thicker coil and thus a higher inductance

Please Note:Nordstrand supplies chrome screws with their pickups. If you require black or gold screws, we carry them on our pickup screws page.

Three thumbs up!

This pickup is pretty awesome. It still sounds like a Rick, but is much more comparable to the bridge pickup’s volume output, which in essence allows the bass to go deeper. Also, the hum cancellation is a pretty sweet bonus! Highly recommended!
