NORDSTRAND FS5 set - € 450,00 NEW
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 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.
