Just a quick review. I've owned a few other pickups/contact mikes and purchased this mainly because of its reported low profile. The magetic pickup I currently own does not fit one of the guitars I bought, so my options where to raise the action, use a contact mike, or use a lower profile pickup. I opted for the third. I used this without testing in first on a gig. While I was not able to get the pickup as close to the neck as I would like, I got it in a comfortable location and lined up the...

Krivo Nuevo Classic Single Coil Gypsy Jazz Guitar Pickup

Krivo Nuevo Classic Single Coil Gypsy Jazz Guitar Pickup
The Nuevo single-coil pickup is the Krivo pickup which is closest in sound to the traditional Stimer pickup popularized by Django Reinhardt during his late electric period. However, I have optimized magnet position and strength to eliminate the dreaded “hot-b string” problems evinced by the original Stimer-type pickups. On the classic Nuevo, an inlaid pearl dot allows for perfect placement to achieve proper alignment and string-to-string balance. Furthermore, the Nuevo is extra thin  (approximately 6mm thick!) and thus easily fits modern guitars with low action for which a Stimer-type pickup is untenable.

Nuevo Single-Coil Specifications:

  • Hand wound with vintage Formvar wire (not the cheap polynylon used by many modern makers).
  • Wired with audiophile grade Mogami™cable inside and out.
  •  Genuine Switchcraft™ connectors.
  • Real hardwood finish.
  • Excellent alternative to traditional “Stimer” type pickups, no “hot ‘b’ string” issues like older brands.
  • Inlaid mother of pearl dot marks position of ‘B’ string for perfect string balance (This pickup has great string balance, specialized for use with  Argentine type strings).
  • Very responsive to EQ so a wide range of tonal colors are at your disposal, from bright and transparent to thick and colored. 
  • Works equally well with a tube amp or dedicated acoustic amps.
  • Slimmer in profile than traditional models.
  • Uses neodymium magnets for clarity and brilliance with strong lows.
  • Innovative “Optimized Microphonics” design senses acoustic vibrations from the soundboard in addition to string vibrations.
  • Mounts with included non-invasive, easily removable, finish friendly putty.
  • No modification to instrument requires , mounts in seconds.
  • Fully shielded for noise minimization.
  • Excellent transparent acoustic tone.
  • Terminates in a dedicated 1/4″ guitar plug, just plug right in to any amp and you are ready to play! No preamp needed.

Nice

Pros: Easy to mount. No hot B string. More of an acoustic tone. Responsive to EQ.

Cons: Have to use putty to mount. While the cable felt like it was attached to the pickup pretty well, I am nervous about how fragile the connection point is.

Just a quick review. I've owned a few other pickups/contact mikes and purchased this mainly because of its reported low profile. The magetic pickup I currently own does not fit one of the guitars I bought, so my options where to raise the action, use a contact mike, or use a lower profile pickup. I opted for the third. I used this without testing in first on a gig. While I was not able to get the pickup as close to the neck as I would like, I got it in a comfortable location and lined up the dot under the B string. I used this on a petite bouche into an AER Compact 60. I turned the master all the way up and used the channel volume as my instrument volume. First thing I can say is that this truly does eliminate the hot B string issue that other mas have a problem with. The high E string sounded a bit thinner that the other mag I use, but overall, the pickup was much more balanced. Sound felt warm and closer to my acoustic sound. I'll list the pros and cons below, but I'd certainly recommend this as an alternative to the Stimer style. Well done.
