Nordstrand Audio Releases the Big SplitMan

A drop-in replacement that features alnico V magnets.

Redlands, CA (September 15, 2017) -- In essence, this pickup is a quad-coil BigMan with a cutthroat vendetta against hum and a raw energy slightly superseding the BigMan’s iconic aggression. Its composition is essentially two Big Splits under the same cover, which creates a kind of unsaturated sonic righteousness demonstrating its ability to ward off unwanted hum and perpetuate its manifold character throughout any practice room or venue. If the BigMan is just not enough for you, then this pickup will surely supply any missing notes of versatility in tone and character an unsatisfied player might be found craving. The Big SplitMan will not disappoint those who practice the art of manipulating large and unruly tone.

Extensively designed, tested and built in the Nordstrand shop in Redlands, California. These pickups are available now at NordstrandAudio.com and select dealers. Street prices start at $131 per pickup.

Technical Details:

  • Two hum-canceling Big Splits in an MM cover
  • Nordstrand’s iconic angled poles
  • Drop-in replacement for 4-String and 5-string MM bass pickup
  • Alnico V magnets
  • Laser cut vulcanized fiber bobbins
  • Wax-potted to contain any unruly frequency that may attempt to desecrate your desired tone
