Bass pickups Nordstrand NJ5 vintage SINGLE COIL for 5 string bass (bridge + neck) / 1 set

The NJ5 will leave you breathless with the splintering snap and grind of its hardwired midrange that can only be tamed by the norepinephrine of its euphoric high end. This is a vintage style single coil pickup wound with Heavy Formvar wire, a choice of alnico III or V magnets, and wound with a programmable CNC winder that simulates a vintage hand wound pattern. The combination of the HF wire in correspondence with the simulated hand wind produces the pickup's lowered resonant peak, which is the source of the hypnotizing ambrosia that is the NJ5's divine high end. Between its high and low end frequencies, this pickup produces a full-bodied sound that replicates the drive synonymous with 60s vintage tone.


Technical Details:

  • Single coil 5 string jazz-type bass pickup.
  • Available in Alnico III or V magnets:
  • Alnico III: will provide a blanket of warmth for your pickup, giving it a slightly softer character.
