The L.R. Baggs Bridge Transducer 5-String Banjo Pickup provides the maximum possible sensitivity by using specially designed transducers built directly into a high quality maple replacement bridge. Building the sensors into the bridge avoids the hollow, "tin can" sound that is typical of stick-on transducers, and provides the best possible string-to-pickup sensitivity and string separation. The result is a clean, bright sound with excellent definition and clarity.
The L.R. Baggs Bridge Transducer Banjo Pickup alsos provide maximum control of feedback, as the sensors do not directly interact with the head of the banjo, which is where most feedback problems arise. This also reduces extraneous body noise, which reduces harshness often associated with banjo pickup systems.
This pickup system can be used without a preamp with most amplifiers, but for best results we recommend the use of a high quality preamp/EQ, such as the L.R. Baggs GigPro or the L.R. Baggs Para Acoustic DI.
Note! This bridge pickup does not include an instrument jack. You can wire the pickup directly into an existing jack (either internal or external). If you do not currently have an jack on your instrument, consider using the L.R. Baggs StrapJack Plus, an internal endpin-style 1/4" jack that will work on most banjos.
