Micro-Manoúche Universal Humbucking pickup for Guitar.
Not merely a "gypsy" pickup, my highly versatile ( only6mm thick) Micro-Manouche humbucking 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, Ghali Hadefi, Benji Nini Winterstein, and Will Dickerson. The Micro-Manouche is exceptionally well-balanced and works with all strings: phosphor-bronze, nickel, and Argentine (silvered copper) strings. It's truly a UNIVERSAL pickup.
The Micro-Manouche is now also available in Chrome Finish—great for steel body resonator guitars.
BACK in STOCK! Krivo Humbucking Pickup for Resophonic Guitars.
Chrome finish back in stock and ready for shipment. At only 6mm thick, the Krivo Humbucking Pickup for Resophonic Guitar is optimized tonally and aesthetically to suit both metal and wood-bodied resonator instruments including squarenecks, single cones, tricones, and dobros. My proprietary Optimized Microphonics winding technique faithfully captures the sound of your particular instrument. 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.
NEW 2020 model Krivo Pickup for Upright Bass
The world-standard magnetic pickup for upright bass is now even better. The 2020 Krivo pickup for upright bass 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.
Please note: the new mounting system is NOT able to be retro-fitted onto older versions of the Krivo pickup for upright bass: the new pickup is structurally reinforced internally and the housing is enlarged to accommodate the new improved mounting system.
As always, 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).
NEW Clip-on Djangobucker: The Ultimate Humbucking Pickup for Oval-hole Gypsy Jazz Guitars
Say goodbye to putty! The new improved Djangobucker for oval-hole (petít boúche) Gypsy guitars now comes standard with an innovative brass clip on mounting system—no more putty, no more pickups accidentally falling off during gigs... The Djangobucker effortlessly installs and removes in seconds. My players have asked for this upgrade for years and I have (finally!) made this long overdue improvement a standard feature. Please note: the new mounting system is NOT able to be retro-fitted onto older versions of the Djangobucker: the new pickup is structurally reinforced internally to accommodate the new clip-mount design.
The Krivo Djangobucker was the first humbucking pickup specifically created for oval-hole Gypsy Jazz guitars and is still the ultimate solution for petit-bouche style instruments. The Djangobucker is endorsed by Robin Nolan, Lisa Liu, Paul Mehling, Dani Rabin—and many many more professional guitarists. Simply the best magnetic pickup for oval-hole gypsy-jazz guitars or your money back! Designed for a snappy acoustic Gypsy-Jazz tone and is fully adjustable for perfect string-to-string balance.
The Djangobucker perfectly recesses into the idiosyncratic fretboard cutaway of petít-bouche guitars 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 Manoúche (humbucker) pickup which is the best Krivo pickup for D-hole or F-hole gypsy guitars.
Micro-Stealth PAF-Style Pickup for Archtop Jazz Guitar
The most innovative pickup for Jazz-guitar in decades, the Micro-Stealth is an ultra-slim (6mm) thick, Jazz PAF humbucker which is slim enough to fit vintage style archtop guitars which have very little space between the soundboard and the strings (e.g., vintage guitars such as Gibson L5, L7, Kay, Harmony, Silvertone, and “modern” archtops such as the Loar LH-600, or Eastman El Rey). However, the Micro-Stealth is a favorite of custom builders and is now featured on select archtops by Emerald and Fibonacci.
The Micro-Stealth PAF is Engineered for a warm, clean and flattering "Jazz" sound. Uses custom manufactured low-intensity neodymium magnets and real hardwood spacers to achieve a vintage tone with a modern "bite," strong attack, and three-dimensional sounding overtones. Not recommended for phosphor bronze or "acoustic" strings. If you use acoustic strings please instead purchase my Micro-Manouche pickup which is exceptionally well-balanced with acoustic strings—it's not just a "gypsy" pickup! The Micro-Stealth PAF is best with nickel or steel round or flat wound "electric" strings and a trad-jazz tone (think Wes Montgomery or Grant Green).
