The Realist Family

The Realist acoustic transducer family includes an ever-growing list of instruments. Over the years, The Realist has proven to be extremely adaptable: what started off as a great bass pickup soon became a great cello pickup, and not long after became a great violin, viola, mandolin, and banjo pickup. Our patented Realist technology has made The Realist the world's most respected pickup for acoustic instruments.

Bass

Realist Copperhead for Bass


Transducer for bass, standard copper element, 1/4" input jack.


Very transparent sound color and texture with unmatched dynamic response both arco and pizzicato. No need to re-attenuate amp settings between arco and pizz. Will sound more like the instrument it's amplifying than any other pickup on the market.


Simple installation. No change to the instrument required.
List Price: $260.00

Realist WoodTone for Bass


Transducer for bass, wood element, 1/4" input jack.


Very transparent sound color, although texture is very slightly compressed. Easy to amplify. No need to re-attenuate amp settings between arco and pizz.


Because it's made of wood, the element won't mark the top of the instrument onto which it is installed. Simple installation. No change to the instrument required.
