Nordstrand Audio has expanded their P-style pickups with the Power Blade. The pickup is built with a thick steel blade, optimized wind, and ceramic magnets that the company says provide an authoritative low-end punch.
“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 which works to facilitate the impressive character that is all its own,” Nordstrand says.
The Power Blade is a drop-in replacement for a P-bass pickup and is designed, tested, and built in Nordstrand’s Redlands, California shop. They are available now with street prices starting at $128.
