How did you discover Nordstrand?
Being a long time Sadowsky player, I was aware of the Nordstrand brand being the highest quality of pickups and instruments. I use NJ5F
pickups and 2B+ preamp
. Including several Sadowsky basses with pickups made by Nordstrand, I have been using Nordstrand over 13 years.
I have a personal tone that I strive for and Nordstrand makes it easy to achieve this goal right out of the box. Simply the best people making the best products with outstanding support from the entire staff!
