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. I have optimized magnet position and strength to eliminate the annoying “hot-b string” problems evinced by the original Stimer pickups. Furthermore, the Nuevo has a much higher output and lower noise than competing single-coil pickups. Also 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.
The Krivo Djangobucker is the ONLY humbucking pickup specifically created for Gypsy Jazz guitars.
Used By Robin Nolan, Lisa Liu, Paul Mehling —and many many more professional guitarists.
The Djangobucker is specifically designed for petit bouche (oval-hole) gypsy-jazz guitars: it perfectly recesses into the fretboard cutaway of these unique instruments for a "seamless" look. At only 6mm thick, the Djangobucker will fit virtually ANY oval-hole guitar.
Do you play a D-Hole (Grande Boúche) Gypsy guitar?—then I highly recommend my Micro-Stealth PAF pickup, Micro Manoúche, or Nuevo Chrome single-coil pickup which are the best Krivo pickups for D-hole guitars.
A mini-humbucker based on my critically-acclaimed Nuévo pickup. Provides a warm sound with a very sweet and clear midrange. 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 X10 guitars and archtops!
