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.
The Nuevo single-coil pickup is the Krivo pickup which is closest in sound to the traditional Stimer™ pickup popularized by Django Reinhardt during his late electric period. However, 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 than competing models. Also in a petit bouche model which fits perfectly into the fretboard cutaway of gypsy guitars.
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!
