David Gage String Instruments

New: Realist LifeLine

Help is on the way from David Gage and Ned Steinberger!

From the makers of the Realist Copperhead comes the Realist LifeLine™, our newest bass pickup.

The LifeLine comes from the most trusted name in acoustic amplification. Like its predecessors, it’s based on a concept of durable, self-powered, transparent piezo pickups that are easy to use. And like the popular Realist Copperhead, it’s made in the USA.

The Realist LifeLine offers a focused bass sound for those musicians who want a lot of punch without loss of fidelity. It performs well at high volumes, offering a clear sound without boom.

"The new pickup is really amazing. I'm totally digging the sound on stage; so much presence and no feedback problems at very loud volumes." —Tony Garnier, Bassist and Musical Director for Bob Dylan

Mounted at the adjuster without glue or fasteners, the LifeLine will fit on most bridges without changing a thing, and it's just as easy to take off. Once installed, the simple design disappears, not drawing attention to itself, preserving the natural beauty of the instrument.
