Nordstrand FatStack 4 stacked humbucking 4-string bass pickups set

  • Sale
  • Regular price $237.60


These are a proprietary nordstrand design. the traditional bi-pole magnet layout was, literally, twisted in a new direction. by rotating the pole 45 degrees for each set we have increased the size of the traditional j style coil by 50%, making it wider, or “fatter”. This results in a larger aperature, which captures more harmonic content from the string, resulting in a “fatter” tone.

These pickups have a tone reminiscent of a j style single coil, but they are bigger and bolder. Full range and a present but pleasant high end response. These pickups have a great deal of midrange detail and fullness. Due to the naturally lower output of this design, these pickups can sometimes benefit from a pre-amp with 3 or more db of gain.

These pickups are shipped with three conductor wire for a split-able installation. When the third lead is shorted to ground only the top coil will remain active for a louder, more aggressive and mean version of the fat tone these pickups deliver (albeit with 60 cycle noise that single coils inherently possess). Think of it as a turbo charger for tone!

These pickups will fit as replacements for bartolini™ bc (4 string) pickups. Dimensions are 3.95? by 1.25?. Standard spacing is 19mm ctc at the bridge.
