The most innovative pickup for Jazz-guitar in decades, the Micro-Stealth is an ultra-slim (6mm) thick, Jazz PAF humbucker especially designed for for “old-school” style archtop guitars which have a very small amount of space between the soundboard and the strings (e.g., vintage guitars such as Gibson L5, L7, Kay, Harmony, Silvertone, and “modern” archtops such as the Godin 5th avenue, Loar LH-600, or Eastman El Rey). Engineered for a warm, clean and flattering "Jazz" sound. Uses custom manufactured low-intensity neodymium magnets and real hardwood spacers to achieve a strong attack with three-dimensional overtones.
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.
Only 6mm thick, the Krivo Resophonic pickup is optimized tonally and aesthetically to suit National type resonator guitars. 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 isnecessary, 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.
Now with a sleek, classic chrome finish, the Nuevo single-coil pickup is the Krivo pickup which is closest in sound and appearance to the traditional Stimer™ pickup popularized by Django Reinhardt during his late electric period. However, this is not merely a "gypsy-jazz" pickup: the Nuevo excels on archtop jazz guitars and resonator guitars (According to Just Jazz Guitar Magazine: "Sonically, the 'Nuevo' has a 'P-90' sound" ). I have optimized magnet position and strength to eliminate the dreaded “hot-b string” problems evinced by the original Stimer-type pickups. Furthermore, the Nuevo has a much higher output and lower noise than competing single-coil pickups. Available in a petit bouche model (with black woodgrain finish) which fits perfectly into the fretboard cutaway of oval-hole gypsy jazz guitars for a "seamless" look.
A mini-humbucker based on my critically-acclaimed Nuévo pickup. Provides a warm clear sound with fat midrange and beefy low end. Great for archtop jazz guitars, slide guitar—and more. The most versatile pickup in the Krivo line. The mini is a mere 6mm thick: installs and removes in seconds and requires no modification to your guitar.
The Krivo Mini-Humbucker is now standard on Emerald Archtops! NEW for 2019 available in genuine Veneer finishes (Walnut burl or African Etimoe).
