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.
Kleio pickups were inspired by Adonis Goulielmos, a gypsy jazz guitar luthier www.goulielmos-guitars.gr.
The name of the pickup belongs to his nine-year-old daughter and it is
written exactly as she writes her name, using Latin characters.

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.
