This new (Spring 2010) pickup brings the Realist’s quality sound to more basses and to more positions on your instrument. The Realist SoundClip is an extremely well-engineered, self-contained transducer unit that offers a great deal of flexibility.
Using the Pickup
It is very easy to use. Its flexibility (positioning, tightness, removable weights) and portability (no tools needed, self-contained) make it an ideal pickup for those who want to switch between basses (or who travel and need a pickup to get a consistent sound on rental basses).
Move your Realist SoundClip from one instrument to another instrument with ease.
Bring your SoundClip for use on rental instruments while on the road.
Remove the pickup from your bass when not playing amplified.
No Bass Modification is necessary, since the SoundClip simply clamps onto any conventional bridge. There is no filing, cutting, or custom fitting. Just open the jaws and adjust the tension wheel.
Bridge Location is not fixed, so you can locate the pickup low on the bridge, for more body warmth, or move it higher up on the leg to bring in some more string detail to your sound… to achieve your desired sound on almost any bass.
Two Adjustable/Removable Weights are for adjusting the character of the sound.
Volume Control is built into the pickup so adjustments are very convenient.
Durable, Solid Brass Construction — this thing is solid!
Convenient Carry Case is included for travel.
Also available for cello!
