Simple and effective: The Micro-Manóuche has been 10 years in the making: my design intention was to combine the best features of my most successful pickups for jazz guitar (Mini Humbucker, Nuevo and PAF) into a simple and cost-effective pickup housed in a beautiful laser-engraved brass-plated cover.. After much experimentation I am proud to say that the new Micro Manouche is the the most affordable, well-balanced and versatile Krivo Humbucker available: Clarity and warmth with a bit of a gritty edge to the tone.
The Micro Manouche has exceptionally great string-to-string balance: this pickup completely solves the balance issues which have beset other magnetic pickups for gypsy-jazz guitars.
The Micro-Manouche is the best Krivo Pickup for D-hole and F-hole Gypsy Jazz Guitars, but excels on every type of guitar. Not merely a "gypsy" pickup, the Micro-Manouche sounds fantastic on archtops too.
The Krivo Micro-Manoúche features the following:
Innovative “Optimized Microphonics” design senses acoustic vibrations from soundboard in addition to string vibrations.
Mounts with included non invasive easily removable finish-friendly putty.
Attractive laser-etched brass plated cover.
No modification to instrument, mounts in seconds.
