NORDSTRAND AUDIO – The “Big BladeMan” Bass Pickup Was Prompted by TOOL’s Justin Chancellor

Nordstrand Audio Big BladeMan

Nordstrand Audio, purveyors of bass and guitar electronics from Redlands, California, recently announced their brand new Big BladeMan bass pickups. After a conversation with Tool’s Justin Chancellor, Carey Nordstrand came up with a pickup design that best reflected Justin’s highly recognizable tone. At just $169 fine American greenbacks a set, these puppies are an affordable tone shaper.


While details on the new design are understandably sparse for the time being, you’d best keep your eyes set on for further developments. And for a set of your own, of course.
