Nordstrand Pickups Releases the Power Blade 5 Bass Pickup

A drop-in replacement for P basses that features a thick steel blade and hum-canceling setup.

Redlands, CA (November 9, 2020) -- The follow up to the Power Blade 4, this 5-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
