The Djangobucker Humbucking Pickup for Gypsy Jazz Guitars
The new 2018 Djangobucker significantly improves on my critically-acclaimed design. It features higher output (6K Ohms) and improved string to string balance. Additionally, individual string volumes are now adjustable with a standard slotted screwdriver, so you never need to worry about forgetting or losing a specialized wrench. Lastly, the 2018 Djangobucker is 30% smaller in size!
The Krivo designed Djangobucker is the ONLY humbucking pickup specifically created for Gypsy Jazz guitars. Fits both “Petit Bouche (oval hole) and “Grand Bouche” (D-hole) style Gypsy Jazz guitars. Only 6.3mm thick (or less)! Will fit virtually any gypsy guitar. Designed for a snappy acoustic Gypsy-Jazz tone. Fully adjustable for perfect string-to-string balance. Mounts with finish-friendly putty (a container of putty is included with each pickup) or choose the clip-mount option, which is available for no extra charge (note: the clip on option only works for oval-hole guitars, and for the standard shaped pickup). Lastly, for oval-hole gypsy guitars I offer a petít boúche version which recesses into the fretboard cutaway for a "seamless" look (see photos).
Do you play a D-Hole (Grande Boúche) Gypsy guitar?—then I highly recommend my Micro-Stealth PAF pickup, which is the player's choice for D-hole guitars.
Krivo Pickup for Resophonic Guitars.
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 Krivo Magnetic Pickup for Upright Bass
Micro-Stealth PAF-Style Pickup for Archtop Jazz Guitar
Krivo Universal Mini-Humbucker Pickup: sounds great on virtually any stringed instrument
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 6.35mm thick (about 1/4"): installs and removes in seconds and requires no modification to your guitar.
Nuevo Single Coil Pickup for Gypsy Jazz Guitars
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.
