Nordstrand Fat Stack 4 string Bass Pickups NEW - Bridge & Neck Pair  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!  These pickups will fit as replacements for Bartolini P2 (5 string) and BC (4 string) pickups. Dimensions are 4.25" by 1.25" and 3.95" by 1.25" respectively. Standard spacing is 19mm ctc at the bridge.  Free Shipping! The Big Split offers single coil tone in hum cancelling pickups. They have a wide aperture with our angled magnet alignment and they have a lot of wire on a large coil. This makes them some of the biggest sounding pickup available anywhere. Full fat bottom, solid thick mids, and clean clear highs, these pickups have it all.   Fits Bartolini 4 String - (Similar to Bartolini (tm) BC Shape ) - 3.99" X 1.27"  Standard string spacing for 4 and 5 string is 19mm, center to center, at the bridge.  FREE SHIPPING! The Bigman pickup is not subtle in the least. Two Big Singles jammed under a Music Man style cover without compromise in wire amount, or magnet load. The result is a pickup that is fantastically muscular and unrelentingly powerful.

These are a split coil hum cancelling design. They use the same hand wound pattern found on Nordstrands 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.” They are also totally humcancelling, and great for commonly noisy live situations.  FREE SHIPPING!

They have a similar clarity and bottom, and have a good clean growl with the same interactive quality that all Nordstrand alnico pickups are known to have.

This is a modern design dual coil humbucking pickup. Pickups like these are usually found on very high end basses. They use Alnico V magnets and the traditional bi-pole layout with two poles per string. It’s almost like two Jazz Bass® stlye pickups in one cover.

These pickups are available in two different versions. One set is designed to be wired in parallel, and the other in series. The reason Nordstrand does this is that a pickup that is made to sound good wired parallel will usually be too hot and dark sounding if wired in series. So, Nordstrand puts less wire on a series dual coil than a parallel dual coil. In general, a pickup wired in series will have a fuller and fatter midrange with a subdued high end than a pickup wired in parallel, which will typically have more highs and a deeper low end with a cleaner midrange. Series pickups also have more output than parallel pickups. Parallel pickups are generally a better choice for a split-able installation, as there will not be the gain loss associated with series pickups.

These pickups are available only in black plastic covers with exposed pole pieces.
