Neodymium Powered Pickups for Acoustic Instruments. Handmade in Portland, Oregon USA

NEW: Über-Slim Humbucker for Archtop Guitar
New for 2016: an über-slim (≈ 6.1 mm) pickup designed especially for archtop-style guitars which have a very small amount of space between the strings and soundboard (e.g., Gibson: L-50, L-7, L…n; Kay, Harmony).

Traditional “floating pickups” for archtop (e.g., Kent Armstrong, Bendetto, etc.,) are too thick to fit many such old archtops—but the Über-Slim dares to go where other pickups cannot!.

The Krivo pickup for archtops, however, is only  ≈ 6mm thick—which is less than most fretboards, thus making it able to fit nearly any of these hard-to-amplify instruments.

The Krivo über-thin pickup is the same pickup as my critically acclaimed Djangobucker, but modified to be extra thin with an attractive black wood finish to suit the classic appearance of vintage instruments.

The Über-slim Djangobucker for Archtop Guitars features the following:

  •     Innovative “Optimized Microphonics” design senses acoustic vibrations from soundboard in addition to string vibrations.
  •     Mounts with included non invasive easily removable finish-friendly putty. (may also be permanently mounted by a qualified technician
  •     No modification to instrument, mounts in seconds.
  •     Fully shielded and hum-cancelling for noise-free performance.
  •     Hand-wound with vintage Formvar wire (not the cheap polynylon used in many modern designs).
  •     Wired with audiophile grade Mogami™cable inside and out.
  •     Switchcraft™ connectors.
  •     Real hardwood finish.
  •     Adjustable pole pieces for perfect string-to-string balance.
  •     Very responsive to EQ— a wide range of tonal colors are is at your disposal, from bright and transparent to thick and colored.
  •     Works equally well with a tube amp or Schertler™, Fishman™, or AER™ type acoustic amps.
  •     Uses neodymium magnets for clarity and brilliance with strong lows.
  •     Excellent transparent acoustic tone.
  •     Incorporates a 1/4″ guitar cord, just plug right into any amp—Or have a qualified guitar technician wire it into an endpin jack for you (not included).
