Reproduce your cellos sound without a lot of hassle.
Designed by Ned Steinberger in collaboration with David Gage. Fits under the foot of the bridge. Produces rich, powerful response that is acoustically true for both pizz and arco. Output level is unusually high, and as a result, the signal-to-noise ratio is also very high...no pre-amp is necessary. Finally, a pick-up that lets you play both pizz and arco without having to play with your controls.

Comments about The Realist Cello Transducer:
I used a lesser quality pickup for my cello for about five years. It was made by a reputable company known for their pickups. My model, however, made my cello sound thin and tinny. When I got some birthday money, I decided to upgrade my pickup. I play with a worship team, so I needed to find something that would help my cello cut through the noise of the other instruments, but wouldn't leave listeners with the feeling that they weren't getting the best sound out of my instrument. Because my old pickup was wedged into one of the holes on my bridge, all it picked up were vibrations off the bridge. The Transducer, however, is seated under a bridge foot, so it picks up vibrations from both the bridge and the body of the cello. The resulting sound output is amazing. I now get the warmth and mellowness that I never got with the old pickup, and our church sound engineers no longer have to kill my highs and mids and boost my lows to get a decent sound out of the mains. I won't ever buy another pickup. If I upgrade, it will only be because I had major cash to buy a cello mic. If I never upgrade, I will still be happy because this pickup is amazing.
