Nordstrand NP4-A

Nordstrand NP4-A p bass pickup was forged from Carey Nordstrand’s obsession to fine the ultimate p tone. It was created with the goal of providing P-bass players with a pickup that offers an array of bass tones whilst incorporating their latest technical pickup design. Using the angled pole piece technique that Nordstrand Audio has come to be known for.  The NP4A delivers a tone that the player can only hope to tame with this hard hitting p bass pickup.

Product Description

Nordstrand NP4-A is the product of the Nordstrand’s original angled pole piece design. Fused with the simplistic yet throaty and aggressive tone inherent to the P-bass style. The result of this combination produces a vibrational luster that is resonant of all the best aspects of precision-style playing; but is then able to go above and beyond the traditional P Bass Pickup with its hard hitting, note sustaining integrity that administers a voice that will carry your sound farther than any standard P could ever dream. A passive tone knob thrown in conjunction with this pickup will reveal an unrelenting and dynamic spectrum of midrange versatility, divinely blending the pickup’s full-bodied bottom-end with its rippling, staccato highs. The Nordstrand NP4A is a truly inspiring amalgam of sonic succulence that retains classic P-style while supporting its bombastic extra-dimensional edge. This pickup will leave any P-player with a tonal fabric that is worthy of their slap-callous fury.

Alnico V magnets are warmer with a softer character. Think of them like a 60’s J style sound taken even further down the warm and fat path. Alnico III is brighter, cleaner and punchier, and will have a more wiry, stringy character.
