The Realist Family

The Realist acoustic transducer family includes an ever-growing list of instruments. Over the years, The Realist has proven to be extremely adaptable: what started off as a great bass pickup soon became a great cello pickup, and not long after became a great violin, viola, mandolin, and banjo pickup. Our patented Realist technology has made The Realist the world's most respected pickup for acoustic instruments.
