Hey, newbie to the forums here! I'm interested in exchanging the pickups in a bass I have and ran across a specific brand - Nordstrand. I'd never heard of them and was just wondering if anyone had ever used them. If you're wondering what bass I'm thinking of customizing it's a Traben Array Limited, 5-string. Found the bass on craigslist relatively cheap and sprung on it. The look is cool ( I have the Spalt Red color ) with the bridge and everything. Sound wise it could be worse but that's just the thing, it could be worse; it could be better. Don't get me wrong I actually do believe that the larger bridge does add more sustain, I've held notes for roughly 30 seconds before (harmonics siiing too). But they boast the bigger bridge = bigger tone and several other things. Tone? I can make the bass sound looooow if that's what they mean. But I feel I'm skimped on highs and mids even though my Array model has an active three-band EQ. Anyways if anyone owns or has ever played a bass with Nordstrand pickups/electronics I'd like to know how they sound.
