DESCRIPTION

This set of pickups is everything the title tells you it is: fat, slap-tastic fury from the Power Blade, and an aggressive yet tamable tone from the Big J Blade. If you’re looking for a raw, untamed, and aggressive sound accompanied by a disinhibiting yet friendly mediator, then the NPJ Blade set is right for you.

WHAT IS THE TONE OF THE NORDSTRAND BIG J BLADE (WARM & WOOLY) BASS PICKUP SET?

The warm & wooly version of Nordstrand’s Big J Blade, has a thicker top and bottom than most pickups that we have tested. The thick lows are powerful. Top end has a bit of a roll off.

Put on a good set of headphones and check out the audio demo below to hear it for yourself.

As always, keep in mind that these are generalizations. Your experience could be different depending on many factors.
