Nordstrand Bigrig 5

£235.00 Incl. VAT

Product Description

The BigRig came to be through an organic and productive conversation with bassist Alberto Rigoni. What developed from this vocal clash of creative energy was a hum-canceling pickup with offset pole pieces; the coils working to sense different parts of string movement, resulting in a multidimensional tone that veers from the usual comb filter mode cancelation effect—which is what can sometimes cause humbuckers to sound a bit flat. This pickup’s tone is open, detailed, and elegant, all the while supplying the player with tons of texture and complexity that pays homage to the vintage 51 P that its design stems from. String spacing is crucial when it comes to this pickup, so in order to capture the full effect of this pickup’s succulent tone, be sure to double check your spacing.

Available in the following String Spacing, 17.5mm, 18mm, 18.5mm, 19mm, 20mm

Standard pickups come in 19mm string spacing
