recently i ordered a bridge Nordy Dual Blade PU and saw there wasnt a review here for em so im deciding to put in a review for em. I ended up ordering these pickups since the fretless i was making had a highly adjustable bridge for string spacing, so naturally i went to look for a good pickup with bar magnets. my first choice were delano xtender pickups but after listening to some samples it wasent exactly what i was looking for. Then scrolling through BBG i saw a new nordy blade pickup. even though there was no picture or sound clip and i had to get the custom made i decided to get em a go since im happy with the fatstacks i have in my other bass.
I have tried pretty much every nordy pickup and this is probably my favorite so far even when it is wired straight to jack! the bass is not even shielded and has no hum what so ever (i believe it is a dual/ quad coil?). the sound is exactly what i had in mind for this instrument its a nice clear sound with a little bite to it. I havent even had to mess with my amp yet while noodeling around since in my room it seems to have a nice balance of treble mids and lows.
lets just say that im going to be getting the neck pickup and maybe a preamp in the future to use the coil tap and experiment with them more.
