The Realist Docking Station


In stock


The Realist Docking Station is a no-fuss dock and volume knob that works with any acoustic string bass pickup. This “Universal Volume Attenuator” mounts to the instrument’s tailpiece without glue or fasteners. The ¼” input and ¼” output allows seamless integration to the player’s current set-up. The volume attenuation is provided by a sleek anodized knob clearly visible and within the player’s reach so that he or she can clearly adjust on-the-fly.

You can use the Docking Station to mute the amplified signal, too. Turn the knob all the way down and you won’t have to worry about amplifying extraneous sounds while moving your instrument on stage, switching from one instrument to the other, etc.

The Docking Station also features The Jack-Pot, a potentiometer that allows the resistance to be bypassed entirely. The Jack-Pot allows the player to “click” into a final, unresisted stage beyond the loudest setting. À la This Is Spinal Tap, this pot lets you “go all the way up to eleven.”

The Docking Station solves jack mounting problems too, neatly keeping the cable away from the ¼” output without additional hardware. The tension of the strings holds The Docking Station to the tailpiece, like the “loop” from the industry standard Realist Copperhead pickups.
