Great with both Phosphor Bronze or Nickel Strings (or any metal string in fact), this amazing pickup is only 6mm thick and installs and removes in seconds. The Krivo Humbucking Pickup for Resophonic Guitars is optimized tonally and aesthetically to suit both metal and wood-bodied resonator instruments including squarenecks, single cones, tricones, and dobros. My proprietary Optimized Microphonics winding technique faithfully captures the sound of your particular instrument. No preamp is necessary, just plug in to any guitar or acoustic amp, or via a direct-box straight into a P.A. system. The pickup mounts and removes effortlessly with included finish-safe putty and the 1/4 female jack conveniently mounts to your endpin strap button: just plug in a standard guitar cable and you are ready to play!
These sell faster than I can make them! So these are available on a pre-order basis and will be made and shipped in the order received. Current wait time is 2-3 weeks. The Krivo has become the world-standard in magnetic pickups for upright bass. The Krivo bass pickup now mounts with a heavy duty but lightweight brass L-bracket (no modification whatsoever to your bass is required: bracket attaches with included 3M™ Dual-Lock fastener). The new mounting system enables the Krivo to fit even basses with a very thin or even curved "cutaway" style fingerboards. The new mount keeps the pickup securely attached even with very forceful and aggressive playing—great for rockabilly and psychobilly players. The 2020 Krivo pickup for upright bass now has a full coverage two year warranty.
Please note: the new mounting system is NOT able to be retro-fitted onto older versions of the Krivo pickup for upright bass: the new pickup is structurally reinforced internally and the housing is enlarged to accommodate the new improved mounting system.
As always, the Krivo pickup for upright bass is fully adjustable for perfect string balance and my proprietary Optimized Microphonics™ technique results in a surprisingly "acoustic" sound. Please remember: you must use steel-core strings for any magnetic pickup to work properly. The Krivo also excels on electric upright basses (EUBs) as long as there is enough room.
