The NP4A is the product of 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 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 NP4A is a truly inspiring amalgam of sonic succulence that retains classic P-style while supporting its bombastic extra-dimensional edge.
The NP4A was forged in the funktifying crucible of Nordstrand’s tone chasing obsession. It was created in hope of providing P-bass players with a pickup that offers an array of bass-tastic tonality and technicality. Using the angled pole piece technique that Nordstrand has come to be known for, we feel confidant in stating that the NP4A delivers a tone that the player can only hope to domesticate as the shepherd of this hard hitting P-bass power.
