I just finished my second installation of a DuPont Bigtone pickup/Bridge, this one went into my wife's gypsy guitar (an Altamira M40F archtop style instrument). Again, I am very pleased and impressed with the result! The guitar looks great, with no visible pickups or wires, the resulting sound is surprisingly sweet and true to the instrument, feedback resistance is stellar, and it is the easiest system to use and gig with that I have tried (and I have tried several approaches).

I just installed a Dupont Bigtone pickup on my Altamira M01 gypsy guitar, and the result exceeded my expectations!

I had the Dupont Bigtone installed on my Dupont MD50, after having gigged with a AT Pro lavalier mics, a Stimer reissue pickup, and dynamic and condenser miss on stands. I wish I had installed the Bigtone to begin with. So far I'm pleased with its tone, its output, and the convenience of just plugging in the cable. I'm running into either an AER Compact 60 or an Evans RE200. I think I prefer the AER at this point. Sounds pretty good just running into the DI input of a recording interface. ...

Maurice Dupont Bigtone Pickup

Maurice Dupont Bigtone Pickup
Long time used in Europe by players like Stochelo Rosenberg, Jimmy Rosenberg, Angelo Debarre, Boulou and Elios Ferre, Bireli Lagrene, etc., this system is designed for accurate sound, high output, feedback resistance and reliability at a reasonable cost. The shielded cable is audiophile quality, with no perceptible noise or distortion. No battery required.

Manufactured in Cognac, France by Maurice Dupont, This model is considered by most to be the best sounding bigtone. The extra lightweight bridge preserves the acoustic tone of the instrument (many other manufacturers use a heavier bridge which mutes the acoustic tone/projection of the guitar). Also, the placement of piezo element is optimized to reduce harsh, brittle high end response and "quack."

Dupont Bigtone Performance

I just finished my second installation of a DuPont Bigtone pickup/Bridge, this one went into my wife's gypsy guitar (an Altamira M40F archtop style instrument). Again, I am very pleased and impressed with the result! The guitar looks great, with no visible pickups or wires, the resulting sound is surprisingly sweet and true to the instrument, feedback resistance is stellar, and it is the easiest system to use and gig with that I have tried (and I have tried several approaches). I find that running the Bigtone into the LR Baggs Acoustic DI pre-amp results in a great tone which can be fed directly into a PA or a stage amp with minimal tone-shaping needed. I also use a Tone Dexter for MY Bigtone-equipped gypsy guitar which runs directly into the sound system and sounds great - very natural and "mic'ed" sounding. Thanks again to Michael for the great support and quick delivery!

Dupont Bigtone Performance

I just installed a Dupont Bigtone pickup on my Altamira M01 gypsy guitar, and the result exceeded my expectations! Not only does the amplified signal sound big, natural and have no propensity to feed back, the acoustic tone quality of my guitar is also improved! plus, there are no wires or devices attached to or visible on the guitar when I'm being amplified. I was also very happy with the quick delivery time and great technical support from Djangobooks.com. Here are a couple lessons learned from the experience: 1. be very careful to cut shallow string slots on the bridge, and ensure slot angle creates maximum string contact on the side of the bridge facing the fingerboard. An improperly cut slot dramatically affects the tone of the string. 2. Ensure that your bigtone is run through a preamp designed for piezo input! If you plug the guitar directly into a standard soundboard (even one with a "guitar" input), the result will be poor tone and lack of signal strength. I run the bigtone into an LR Baggs Para Acoustic DI with built in preamp, which feeds directly into the soundboard and the resulting sound quality is AWESOME. Note that I have tried several other gypsy guitar pickups and various micing techniques, and for gigging situations, nothing comes close to the bigtone, both for sound quality, and ease of setup!

Dupont Bigtone Picku

I had the Dupont Bigtone installed on my Dupont MD50, after having gigged with a AT Pro lavalier mics, a Stimer reissue pickup, and dynamic and condenser miss on stands. I wish I had installed the Bigtone to begin with. So far I'm pleased with its tone, its output, and the convenience of just plugging in the cable. I'm running into either an AER Compact 60 or an Evans RE200. I think I prefer the AER at this point. Sounds pretty good just running into the DI input of a recording interface. Kind of pricey, but it's not only the pickup but also the replacement bridge. So all in all, a very happy camper.
