Nordstrand Dual Coil 4 Soapbar Set

Nordstrand Dual Coil 4 Soapbar Pickup leaves you in a state of wonder once you begin to unfold the dynamic spectrum of tonal options at your disposal. The versatility of this pickup lies in the players choice of its two different wind optimizations: especially programmed parallel or series operations.

The reason for providing you with these choices, stems how a pickup made to sound good in parallel will often sound too hot and dark when wired in series. Nordstrand Dual Coil 4 Soapbar wired in parallel has specially designed wind. This will provide a glistening high end, a submerged, trenching low end, and a crisp and clean midrange. The parallel model is usually a wiser choice for split-able installation, as its gain loss will not be diminished. A typical issue that is often associated with its sister in series. The higher output series model will provide a driving, combustible midrange that subdues the timbre of its high end without entirely dismantling any mandatory complementation within its tonal spectrum.

Sold as a complete set of 2 pickups. Individual pickups can be purchased on request. Contact us for more details.

SKU N/A Category


Nordstrand Dual Coil 4 Soapbar Pickup was the very first pickup to ever be fabricated by Nordic hands. In a sense, they are the gateway drug that has led to the obsessively creative habits and methodical productivity that streamlines the status quo of the Nordstrand way. To this day, this mythical first pickup—forged by the hands of Carey Nordstrand himself—stands in our shop as a monolithic reminder of the innovative thinking and creative combustibility that Nordstrand stands for.
