Describe your rig and/or instrument of choice:
Im currently right now playing a Lakland 55-02 five string bass. I have it strung with D’Addario NYXL (45-130).
What Nordstrand products do you use and what do you like about them?
I have the BigMan 5
and Single Coil Nj5
hum cancelling Nordstrand pick-ups along with the 3b-5a preamp
in my Lakland 55-02. I discovered these pickups through my friend Steve Jenkins, a fellow bassist. He had just gotten the same pickups put into his Lakland and told me get these Nords put in RIGHT AWAY. So, I took his advice because I trust him. I've been using them since February of 2017. They sound INCREDIBLE. I perform in arenas each night so I needed something that would cut through in any situation and that's exactly what these Nordstrand pickups do. Many musicians have come to see the show and I always get asked, “What type of pickups are you using for your Lakland? They sound incredible!" I'm happy to tell them that they are NORDSTRAND!
