NOW IN STOCK and Ready to Ship: The Micro-Manouche is new standard in magnetic pickups for Gypsy Jazz guitars. Robin Nolan has called it "simply the best" Available in Black/Gold or Chrome.
It's well established that all of the classic Django style surface-mount magnetic gypsy jazz pickups (e.g., Stimer) suffer from single-coil noise and poor string-to-string balance: a brash and overly loud "b" string and a dead "g". The Micro-Manouche solves all of these issues with panache and strikes the perfect balance with Argentine type strings (among others!) GUARANTEED to have optimal string balance or your money back and NO NOISE—it's a humbucker. And it mounts and removes in seconds with no modification to your prized instrument. Best of all it avoids that annoying piezo "quack".
However, don't think of this as merely a "gypsy pickup"—the highly versatile Micro-Manouche pickup has become a favorite among archtop jazz players, acoustic guitarists, reso and dobro players and is even used on niche instruments like the, cigar-box guitar, the Indian veena and balalaika! Endorsed by professional players like Robin Nolan, Marc Athlan, Ghali Hadefi, Benji Nini Winterstein, and Will Dickerson. The Micro-Manouche is exceptionally well-balanced and works with all metal strings: phosphor-bronze, nickel, Monel™ and Argentine (silvered copper) strings. It's truly a UNIVERSAL pickup.
This is the pickup for you if you want the most natural tone and best string balance. It sounds like YOUR instrument. 30-day money back satisfaction guarantee. One year full parts and labor warranty against defects.

The world's leading magnetic pickup for upright bass. The Krivo 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.
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
