Nordstrand Pickups and the BigMan

The result of a questionable hair-brained idea, and named after the fellow that had this idea, (and it’s very imposing nature) the BigMan pickup is not a subtle animal in the least. Take a Music Man-style cover and jam two Big Single pickups into that cover. Don’t bother using shorter magnets or less wire –just go for it! The result is a pickup that is fantastically muscular and unrelentingly powerful. Not for the faint of heart.

Specs:

  • A striking and aggressive appearance
  • Lots of Alnico V magnets
  • Available in standard Music Man replacement sizes
  • Optimized for 250k pots
  • Four conductor lead wires allow switching options


Extensively designed, tested, and built in the Nordstrand shop in Redlands, California. These pickups are available now at select dealers. Street price starts at $169 each.

Founded by respected bass guitar maker Carey Nordstrand in 2005, Nordstrand Pickups offers innovative designs rooted in traditional tried-and-true methods and materials. The fast-growing company offers premium quality replacement pickups to discriminating guitarists and bassists, and supplies pickups to some of the world’s most respected guitar & bass manufacturers.
