Realist Copperhead RLSTC1 Cello Pick-Up
Shipping international restrictions confirmation
Realist pickups read off of the instrument's tone-producing structures to overcome the limitations of microphones and traditional piezo transducers. On most instruments, the tone is produced by a resonating "top" or "table." Using piezo ceramics encased in a thin copper element, The Realist is pressed tightly against the instrument's table, giving it the ability to sense every nuance of the tone produced there. The Realist focuses on the core of the instrument's sound to bring you a tone that can only be described as "the most real."
The Realist is simple. The element is wired directly to a gold-plated output jack, providing virtually lossless conduction of the piezo's signal. Colored and textured with the acoustic quality of the instrument, The Realist's signal need not be run through a pre-amp. Plugged directly into an amp or soundboard, The Realist is easily amplified without sacrificing natural acoustic color. It takes hours of practice to draw your sound out of your instrument, but with The Realist, your voice can be heard more accurately through an amplifier. Both recording engineers and professional musicians have been astonished by The Realist's tone and response when installed on plucked, bowed, or strummed instruments. Finally, you can play your instrument as you normally would, without having to stop and adjust your amp.
The Copperhead is the original, reliable, transparent piezo pickup for upright bass. Due to its huge success, it soon became an excellent pickup for cello, viola, violin, mandolin, banjo, and more. In addition, the patented Realist technology has made it the world's most respected pickup for acoustic instruments. The Copperhead for cello gives a 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. It will sound more like the instrument it's amplifying than any other pickup on the market.
