199.99 289.99 $199.99 - $289.99
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. A five-string version is now available!
“The Krivo acoustic bass pickup is the perfect choice for tone, clarity, and presence. It delivers the authentic sound of the acoustic bass when I need to play in an amplified ensemble settings and it holds up perfectly in both low volume rehearsals and high energy performances. The compact design makes it especially easy to add to your setup, and it can be attached and removed very efficiently. I recommend the Krivo acoustic bass pickup for the player who needs to add that extra kick to his sound”.--Dirk Shumaker: Big Bad Voodoo Daddy
“The Krivo bass pickup delivers a warm, powerful, focused and well defined sound. It has a clarity not found in most piezo pickups especially in the middle and upper registers and has none of the upper-mid brashness that many piezos do. The individual pole pieces allow you to get a balanced sound out of any instrument with little effort. It has been especially useful when touring and playing venue or backline provided basses. I just bring extra mounting tape (which is available in most hardware stores) put the pickup on and instantly have a good sound out of just about any bass (as long as it has steel strings!). Kudos to Jason for coming up with such a fine product!” --John Belzaguy: Arturo Sandoval, Natalie Cole, Eddie Daniels, Poncho Sanchez
Here is a fantastic review of the Krivo bass pickup by Dr. Adam Booker: Assistant Professor of Applied Bass and Jazz Studies University of Minnesota Duluth.
"This Krivo pick up for the upright bass has changed my world. I received it last week from Mark over at Gollihur Music. I then quickly and easily installed it. It is the best thing that I have purchased for my Upright in years. No more fighting feedback. I finally get a big round, well balanced tone. The poles were easy to adjust to get even loudness across the strings. Even though it sounds a bit more electric, it sounds way better. I was having to dial out all the tones I wanted with my other piezo pick ups and my bass just sounded thin. I play with a four piece and a drummer. I can easily hang in the mix now. And, I can take my bass, 2 cables, volume pedal, and amp to the gig and that is all I need—so much easier! This pick up is just awesome, thank you!"
