How did you discover Nordstrand / How long have you been using Nordstrand? Aside from owning a music shop for two years in which I sold big brands like Martin, Taylor, Warwick and Ramirez, and during my musical career, I got the chance to try, test and own many basses among which were the Nordstrand VJ4 and VJ5 that I owned for 3 straight years buying them in used condition. I was completely astonished with the warmth of Nordstrand pickups which led me to follow this brand on YouTube and other social platforms as well as following the artists that use different Nordstrand pickups.
In my arsenal, my favourite bass is the Acinonyx, it has a roaring power and versatility within its this highly developed electronics!
What Nordstrand products do you use and what do you like about them? I used to use the NJ5 Big Single, with the Nordstrand preamp that my VJ5 was loaded with. What I liked about them is the deep warmth, accurate response and high performance.
