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 Humbucking Pickup for Resophonic Guitar is optimized tonally and aesthetically to suit all resonator instruments including Squarenecks, single cones, tricones, and Dobros. My proprietary Optimized Microphonics winding technique faithfully captures the sound of your particular instrument. The Krivo Resophonic pickup comes in an attractive nickel finish to match the classic appearance of metal-bodied resonator instruments. However, this pickup is also fantastic on wood-bodied instruments and a variety of wood finishes may be special ordered to suit your particular guitar. 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.
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).
Only a few left!
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.
