I had been searching for something more aggressive / less hifi than the Barts I had. These did he trick. I made a video comparing the two. Both these and the Barts are great pickups, but these were definitely a much better fit for me.
Warm and wooly. Precisely. Fat bottom, yet no lack of top end, even with flatwounds. Plus they look super cool!
I love these pickups. Perfect single coil tone, and lots of it. I use them with a .100 uF capacitor on the tone pot and they can get nice and dark without being muffled. They’re just awesome pickups.
Great sound, easy to install. These were the "warm and wooly" models and I would recommend them to anyone looking to upgrade a J style bass.
I recently opted to overhaul my , Warwick Rockbass 4str. Active. Being a fan of J.Chancellor of Tool , I went with the Nordstrand Big J blademan pickups , and the matching nordstrand electronics kit . Perfect choice, as I can dial in that metallic growl , as well as , any other tone I can think of. I had a couple of install issues , the guys here at Fatbasstone were ready and willing to help me thru it. It turned out to be simple, nonetheless they were ready to help and asked for a status follow-up. Highly recommend this store.
