    Hey all, I was pondering today how a set of Nord single coils would go with a Sad preamp. I obviously wouldn't be able to try before I buy, which I am in the market for this sort of thing as it is, so has anyone tried this combination at all? Any guesses as to how it might sound?

    Roger will make a bass with single coils simmilar to a seymour duncan antiquity II, and those nordies are a very simmilar design, so I think it'll work out just fine.
     
  3. you want to hear this, so I'm going to tell you. it will sound awesome! both are extremely high quality pieces and in the top of their class.

    Just what I want to hear...

    Now for the big question... will it have a kickass slap sound like a Sadowsky??

    If I'm not wrong, our good friend maurilio has this match on a Warmoth part bass ... maybe he'll chime in.

    Speaking of Maurillo...I've hooked Mo' up with several sets of Nordstrand pickups over the course of the last year or two, and several of those sets have gone in Sadowsky basses, if I'm not mistaken. I belive that he is more than happy with the results, but hopefully he'll chime in. He also has posted his reviews/impressions in threads that he has started on the subject.

    Hey thanks JPJ for the pm. I didn't even know half of those pickups existed. I swear there are a few models that aren't on carey's website...
