It is Van Den Hul 's best in pickup capsules, which means that it is one of the best products of its kind available on the world market and an indisputable reference when it comes to converting the content of the grooves of the guitars into music. vinyl records. Created to enhance the sensational sound performance of the Grasshopper series and available in three versions with as many output levels, The Colibri is the ultimate expression of AJ van den Hul's talent and the consummation of a career dedicated body and soul to the search for the perfect reproduction of music recorded on the most popular of analogue media. Made completely by hand and to order, The Colobri is a small work of art of electromechanical engineering in which apparently insignificant elements have been taken into account to improve the quality of the final sound presentation: minimization and adaptation of the global magnetic circuit to reduce distortion, consequent reduction of the total mass of the assembly, elimination of the front pole piece thanks to the reduction in the length of the cantilever... all this combined with extreme care in the selection of materials. A simply sublime product.
