    Hey guys, I'm looking to upgrade my Lakland 55-01 with an Aguilar OBP-3 and Nordstrand Dual Blade pups..

    Has anyone tried this combination and could give me some feedback, or could anyone recommend something else..

    I'm looking for a modern jazz-like tone, with a little more bottom end

    Look forward to hearing back :D

    I'm looking at the same thing, but I have big singles in my bass
  3. Nordstrand Big Singles/Fat stacks + Sadowsky preamp is a perfect "plug and play" setup, works great both live and in studio, with minor eq adjustments. they sound great passive too.

    I wouldn't consider any of modern blade pickups at all. To much thin sounding, need lot of eq-ing and lot of effort to get a proper sound:rollno:
