New Bass Pickup: Nordstrand Pickups Releases the Power Blade 5

Nordstrand Power Blade 5…

The Power Blade 5 is the follow up to the Power Blade 4. This five-string version, with its thick steel blade, optimized wind, and ceramic magnets providing an authoritative low-end punch, will distribute a forcefield of fat slap fury that is tamed and guided by a super smooth top end. With half of its tonal DNA being derived from the classic P design, its character is inherently reminiscent of that hard-hitting P bass vigor we all love, only with a bit more girth in its low-end and translucent flow in its highs.

Technical Details:

• Hum canceling split coil 5 string precision-type bass pickup.
• Thick steel blade
• No worries about string spacing!
• Drop-in replacement P-bass pickup – See Dimensions Tab – (Fender sizing currently not available).
• Ceramic magnets.

Extensively designed, tested and built in the Nordstrand shop in Redlands, California, these pickups are available now at select dealers. Street prices start at $138.

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.
