Nordstrand Pickups Releases the BigRig Hum Canceling Bass Pickup


PR – Nordstrand Pickups Releases the BigRig Hum Canceling Bass Pickup

The BigRig Pickup came about very organically, as?a result of a conversation with bassist Alberto Rigoni. A dual 51 P style pickup, one pole per string, was the initial concept, but offset pole pieces are iconic for Nordstrand. What developed is a hum canceling pickup where the coils sense different parts of the string movement.The result isn’t the normal comb lter mode cancellation effect, which can make humbuckers sound a bit one dimensional. The BigRig has a very broad spectrum sound with tons of texture and complexity at the same time. It sounds a lot like a big single coil. Imagine that. Big Single… but hum canceling.

These all new pickups features:

  • Hum canceling
  • Nordstrand’s iconic angled pole pieces
  • Soapbar Covers?
  • Available in 4-string, 5-string, 6-String

Extensively designed, tested and built in the Nordstrand shop in Redlands, California, these pickups are available now at select dealers. Street prices start at $260 per set.

Founded by respected bass guitar maker Carey Nordstrand in 2005, Nordstrand Pickups offers innovative designs rooted in traditional tried-and-true methods and materials. The fast-growing company offers premium quality replacement pickups to discriminating guitarists and bassists, and supplies pickups to some of the world’s most respected guitar & bass manufacturers.
