Describe your rig or instrument of choice. I try to bring the most appropriate instruments for the gig. More often than not, it means my walnut Spector NS-2 and my heavily modified "Frankenstein" Jazz bass, which has taken me 10 years to perfect. The final icing on the cake was the new Big J-blades, which are simply the best "J" pickups I’ve ever heard.
How did you discover Nordstrand? I have been using Nordstrands for 5 years. I wanted a replacement pickup for my `99 MusicMan Stingray 5, and started looking online. I ended up with the Nordstrand MM 5.3 (custom order) which totally transformed the bass, and brought it to life.
Artists whom with you are currently working: The bands Popzilla and Mamas Garden, in addition to various freelance gigs around the Oslo-area. I’ll also be playing the Norwegian production of "Grease" which premieres in January 2018, and a couple of smaller theater productions before then.
