The Realist acoustic transducer was designed by Ned Steinberger in collaboration with David Gage.; It has been noted for the extraordinary transparency and unmatched tonal fidelity. The pick-up features a black-wrapped copper element that fits underneath the bridge to produce a very transparent sound, color and texture with unmatched dynamic response – both arco and pizzicato.; The Realist will sound more ‘true’ amplified than any other pick-up on the market.; No need to re-attenuate the amplifier settings between arco and pizz. Since the pick-up element is installed underneath the foot of the bridge, you will notice a slight increase to the height of the strings.; However, for most players, this should not interfere or hinder your instruments tone.
