Hey TBrs, Done some searching on TalkBass and YouTube and aside from a few videos, don't see a ton on Nordstrand's PowerBlade and Big J-Blade 4 pickups. From the videos I have listened to, they sound like they would be amazing in my G. Gould GGi4 with an EMG set (I say this b/c the bass has a carbon fiber neck and thus a very focused sound, but I find the EMGs too polite). Anyone have experience with these pickups? Also: Has anyone here dropped a preamp in a passive P/J style bass? Aside from the technical aspects, what's your experience? Did it kill the vibe or change the passive tone (if your preamp has a passive option)? Thanks!
