Scaled down from the bass version, the Realist SoundClip for Cello was designed by celebrated instrument and electronics designer Ned Steinberger and repair guru David Gage. The petite and portable SoundClip is easy to install or remove from a cello’s bridge, making it an appealing choice for noninvasive pickup installation.
A layer of copper foil shields the SoundClip’s piezo element, while a padded adjustable clamping screw attaches to the bridge with a durable nonslip material for a damage-free connection. A patent-pending adjustable weight system allows you to control your tone by adding or subtracting mass from the pickup. Using a standard ¼-inch output, the SoundClip’s passive electronics allow you to run straight into an amp or PA without a preamp, though you might want to have one on hand for greater tone shaping and feedback control. Cello pick-up clamps onto bridge without modification or damage. Use with or without a preamp.
