NOW available for immediate shipment: the new Micro-Manouche pickup for Gypsy and Traditional Jazz guitars.
Simple and effective: The Micro-Manóuche has been 10 years in the making: my design intention was to combine the best features of my most successful pickups for jazz guitar (Mini Humbucker, Nuevo and PAF) into a simple and cost-effective pickup housed in a beautiful laser-engraved brass-plated cover.. After much experimentation I am proud to say that the new Micro Manouche is the the most affordable, well-balanced and versatile Krivo Humbucker available: Clarity and warmth with a bit of a gritty edge to the tone.
The Micro Manouche has exceptionally great string-to-string balance: this pickup completely solves the balance issues which have beset other magnetic pickups for gypsy-jazz guitars.
The Micro-Manouche is the best Krivo Pickup for D-hole and F-hole Gypsy Jazz Guitars, but excels on every type of guitar. Not merely a "gypsy" pickup, the Micro-Manouche sounds fantastic on archtops too.
Only 6mm thick, the Krivo HumbuckingResophonic pickup is optimized tonally and aesthetically to suit National type resonator guitars (including Squarenecks). Krivo's proprietary Optimized Microphonics faithfully capture the sound of your particular instrument. The Resophonic Model has a compact and rectangular housing with an attractive nickel finish to match the classic appearance of metal-bodied resonator instruments. No preamp is necessary, just plug in to any guitar or acoustic amp, or via a direct-box straight into a P.A. system. Mounts easily with included finish-safe putty.
Rapidly becoming the world-standard magnetic pickup for upright bass. The Krivo is fully adjustable for perfect string balance and mounts easily with included fastener. The incorporation of my proprietary Optimized Microphonics™ technique results in a surprisingly "acoustic" sound. The Krivo will fit virtually any upright bass (just please remember: you must use steel-core strings for any magnetic pickup to work properly). The Krivo also excels on electric upright basses (EUBs).

The most traditional pickup in the Krivo line, the Nuevo single-coil pickup is the Krivo pickup which is closest in sound and appearance to the traditional Stimer™ pickups popularized by Django Reinhardt during his late electric period but without the harshness and poor balance evinced by the vintage Stimers. However, this is not merely a "gypsy-jazz" pickup: the Nuevo excels on archtop jazz guitars and resonator guitars. Furthermore, the Nuevo has a much higher output and lower noise than competing single-coil pickups. It has a wide dynamic range and superior headroom as only neodymium powered pickups can obtain.

My new mini-humbucker is very clean and flattering pickup with lots of output. This exciting little marvel is based on my critically-acclaimed Nuévo single-coil pickup but with an added noise cancelling "intelligent coil™". This pickup provides a warm sound with a very sweet and clear midrange. Great for archtop jazz guitars, slide guitar—and more: this pickup can also be used on bouzouki, balalaika, 5-string banjo, and tenor guitar. The mini-humbucker is thus the most versatile pickup in the Krivo line. A mere 1/4" thick: the Mini-Humbucker installs and removes in seconds and requires no modification to your guitar. (the "mini" has a 52mm spacing E to e.
