DESCRIPTION

Its nature is of a sort of hybrid P/J character, only it delineates a smoother, stronger, and richer tonal palette. Given the extrapolated personality of its P/J sound, the Big Split is a top notch choice for both fretless playing and the Jazz Bass®-on-steroids tone purist. The Big Split uses the same angled magnet layout as out the Big Single, only the coil is split after the D string. Through fitting as much wire as we could between two coils under a soap-bar cover, we have come up with a tone that is fat, clean, and stylistically game changing.

The Big Split design comes from yet another tale of what others might think of as perfunctory whimsicality, but what we at Nordstrand like to think of as simply the madness in our meticulous methods. This pickup’s hybrid timbre was created when Jazz Bass® and Precision Bass® tone was accidentally dropped into our Sonic Superconducting Particle Collider. The result was sonic pulverization, an explosion of vibe and ventriloquistic parentage; for it was found thereafter that the best aspects of the P/J character seemed to speak through the Big Split, and thus this hybrid joined the ranks of our bass pickup arsenal.

Artists: Amos Heller, Marc "Mulles" Muller, Tye Zamora, Kurt Blankenship, Antoine Franqueville-Roy, Paolo Costa
