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.
The Realist Upright Bass acoustic transducer was designed by Ned Steinberger in association with David Gage. A primary design goal was to create a transducer that would work equally well for pizzicato and arco through commonly used amplifiers, without requiring a pre-amp or other active, battery powered gear. A flexible element fits under the bridge foot so that it picks up sound from both the bridge and top plate. Produces a rich and powerful response that is acoustically true for both pizzicato and arco without adjusting controls. No preamp necessary. Easy installation. Just plug it in.
