Nordstrand Big J Blade 4 Set

The Big J-Blade is a recent addition to our pickup catalog; a jazz-style single coil with a continuous sensing blade. In order to provide players with a choice in tone, this pickup is offered with either a “warm and wooly” or “clean and clear” wind. As you might have guessed, the names of these winds denote the tone which they have been designed to facilitate. Just as has been demonstrated by our Big Blades, this pickup’s stylish, mean looking slotted blade piece makes sure that each string’s output is accounted for.

Product Description

Nordstrand Big J Blade 4 string pickups are an innovative application to the jazz bass style pickup using the solutions excavated through discovering the secrets of the Big Blade. Their aesthetic elements reflect the groundbreaking development of signature Nordstrand blade tone. These pickups are the weapon of choice for the war-time jazz player—the funk master that has all but ten seconds to shred his way to infinity before his bass based pride is compromised by an opponent of lesser tone—and have been rendered as such in order to supply the player with a diversifying sound that is broken down even further by its dual choice in winds.
