humcancelling 5 string precision-type bass pickups
This P style pickup uses an original Nordstrand innovation (twisted pole
pieces) to get the most out of standard size covers, but with vintage
correct magnets, for a slightly smoother tone than our standard NP5.
*now available with Alnico III (A3) Magnets
Alnico III magnets differ from Alnico V in that they are warmer with a softer character. Think of them like a 60’s J style sound taken even further down the warm and fat path. Alnico V by contrast is brighter, cleaner and punchier, and will have a more wiry, stringy character. As another example, we’d recommend A3 for fretless or a fat 60’s Jaco type thing and A5 is great for a modern slap type thing or an R and B sound.
