    For sale is a pair of like-new Nordstrand Big Singles for 6 string bass.

    $200 shipped. For sale only.

    These cost $260 brand new and these are in "like-new" condition.

    These pickups are single-coil pickups with very low noise. I had these installed for only two days and the bass never left my smoke-free home. I'm only selling them because they have WAY too much output for my needs. Otherwise, these pickups are absolutely awesome. Screws are included.

    Description:
    Big Singles Soapbars
    These pickups are all about huge, full, loud, aggressive single coil tone. They use the same magnet layout as the Fat Stack, and the resultatly big coil is about as much single coil pickup that can be packaged in a soap-bar cover.

    This is the ultimate pickup for the Jazz BassĀ® on steroids purist.

    These pickups are available only in black plastic covers with exposed pole pieces.

    These pickups will fit as replacements for Bartolini P4 shape: 4.675" x 1.27" (118.745mm x 32.258mm)

    It depends on your application and your taste. These Big Singles are very hot. WAY more output than Bartolinis.

    stumbling on these while looking for a set of Jazz 5 string pups. Don't know what kind pf barts I have on my Roscoe SKB 6. I would love to try these out.

    The Barts on your Roscoe are custom-wound specifically for Roscoe. However, they honestly don't sound all that different than other Bartolinis if you were to take them out of your Roscoe and place them in a different bass.

    However, these Big Singles in your Roscoe would make the bass completely killer. I did this same mod before and I loved it! I had an SKB 3006.

    So these would fit on my Roscoe without any mod right? would you take $150 for the set?
    Thanks.

    These WILL fit in your Roscoe because they are Bartolini P4 shape. The screws holes are also a direct fit.

    Unfortunately, I cannot take $150 for them. These are like new. I only had them in my bass for two days. Brand new ones cost $260 from Bestbassgear.com.

    However, thank you for your interest.

    I understand completely. When you do get some cash just hit me up to see if I still have them.

    What kind of Bart's do you have? I may be interested in buying them from you? Are they size P4 for a 6-string?
