Nordstrand Audio Announces Power Blade 5 Pickup
Nordstrand Audio has expanded its Power Blade pickup line with a new five-string version. The hum-canceling pickup can be used as a drop-in replacement for a P-bass and features a thick steel blade, optimized wind, and ceramic magnets for extra 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,” the company writes.
The Nordstrand Power Blade 5 is made in Redlands, California. It’s available now with a street price of $138.
