1/3/18 Update - Viola scale, 14" CGDA tuning finally available.

3/14/17 Update -
Added black to the color options including a black stained walnut neck - very sharp. Viola scale option should be available in April. Designed around a 14" scale, it promises to be a great alternative for a compact travel instrument for both practice and performing with the excellent built in 'Open to Source' pickup.

12/15/16 Update - After evaluating a number of different strings, we settled on Thomastik Alphayue as the best match for the Cricket adding both volume and warmth to its tone. These are now standard and a real bargain for a synthetic string.

3/20/15 Update
– New Open Source Sensors pick up is now available. This high quality U.S.A. made soundboard transducer is a big improvement over the previous system. Known for their warm, accurate acoustic sound reproduction, these custom made pickups give the Cricket a surprisingly big rich sound. Because of the unique mounting between the sound post and the top, no preamp is required which means no battery to worry about, super light weight, AND lower cost.

9/16/14 UpdateFinally dialed in the adjustable chin/Shoulder rest along with a few other improvements. The chin rest was shifted further away from the instrument and the shoulder rest was tucked further under the instrument providing a more balanced support. The neck was also modified to allow for an additional 1.5” of unobstructed top plate area. This combined with the downsizing of the sound holes, resulted in a more balanced output with improved low end resonance. The pickup transducer was also moved further under the bridge for increased response plugged in. Everyone’s support and feedback has been very helpful as we continue to make improvements – thanks.
