The new Hoyt, which I have dubbed "BooBoo" in honor of it's predecessor "Yogi", is my first Nordstrand loaded bass, and I am an instant fan boy. Huge range of tones out of these things, and even passive I have to use the input pad. Devastatin', not perpetratin'.

Are these Nordstrands overwound/underwound/or just stock? Regular or al dente?

Mine's just a regular ol' NP4.

I don't know about what's in BooBoo, you'd have to ask Karl

Boo boo has np5 and a split coil nj 5 as I understand,they're mostly modeled after vintage pickups with a little special sauce added.....in a month or so I'm wheeling out a funky 4 banger with curly red maple top on swamp ash body, purpleheart fingerboard ,and big shingles in purple heart shells. (Oh....and a gekko inlaid into the fingerboard. It will be funky looking but will bark like a junkyard dog!
