Kleio 47 is an ideal pickup for oval gypsy jazz guitars. We are inspired by Django’s electric sound between 1946 and 1950. The tone of Kleio 47 is influenced by those recordings, where the poor amplification and the naturally aggressive acoustic technique of Django gave that legendary gypsy jazz tone to our ears (and hearts). Dmitry Kuptsov has done extraordinary work on four tracks of his new album "The Suncatcher" with Kleio 47 pickup and Peche a la Mouche amp.
The pickup is well balanced between the gypsy strings (especially on B string) and this is because we tuned the pickup with the famous argentine gypsy strings of Savarez, however it also works very well with other gypsy strings. A line on top of the pickup indicates the position of the B string.
