The Schatten CBJA Plus is a low profile jack assembly specifically designed for all banjos. The jack mounts externally to the tensioning hooks (rails) with the included hardware, and includes an integrated thumbwheel volume control. Recommended for active or high output passive pickups. This is the same jack assembly that is included with the Schatten BJ-02-PRO banjo pickup. Includes jack assembly only, pickup not included.
The CBJA banjo jack assembly simply clamps to your banjo in the same way a normal arm rest attaches: to the tensioning screws. The jack casing mounts in the front of the rails, while the straight metal back rail is placed behind the rails, and two screws are provided to pull the two pieces together, providing a very secure and solid clamp for the jack. Note that the distance between rails may vary, even on the same banjo. The CBJA jack can accommodate rails that are from about 1-1/4" to 2-1/2" apart.
