From the makers of The Realist Copperhead comes The Realist LifeLine, a piezo pickup for bass.

The Realist LifeLine is the newest bass pickup from the most trusted name in acoustic amplification. Like its predecessors, it’s based on a concept of self-powered transparent pickups that are easy to use- AND it’s made in the USA!

The Realist LifeLine offers a focused bass sound for those musicians who are looking for a lot of punch without loss of fidelity.

Mounted at the adjuster without glue or fasteners, the LifeLine will fit on most bridges without changing a thing, and you can install it yourself - no luthier or tech work required! Isolating the pick up from a vibrating top also helps to hold feedback to a minimum.  

Once installed, the simple design disappears, not drawing attention to itself, preserving the natural beauty of the instrument.    

"For me , the LifeLine pickup by David Gage is a wonderful , practical solution that sounds GREAT!!! It delivers a larger and fuller tone, with a wider frequency response than any other pickup I have heard."  - John Patitucci, Grammy Award Winning Bass Player

Strings Magazine says:

“ ...The Lifeline has an evolved simplicity that is not only elehant, but practically idiot-proof to install."

“The newest Gage pickup has a noticeable high output..."

“Thanks to the Lifeline's quick attack, clear sound, and high volume capability, I've never had a sound with more presence."

“The charms of the Lifeline go beyond its high-volume capability- Its sound is also responsive to a lighter touch and lower volumes. Balance across the strings and registers was also better than most other pickups."
