The LR Baggs Banjo Pickup is now available with a custom jack and mounting system. Leveraging the unitary design that made the LR Baggs Violin Pickup a staple for thousands of performing musicians, they now mold their same miniature vibration sensor directly into a high quality 5/8" maple banjo bridge.
As an integral part of the bridge, the pickup captures inherent characteristics of the instrument fluently at the source without altering any of the banjo's unique acoustic properties. It comes with a fully custom jack and mounting system that was engineered to be reliable, easy to install, and aesthetically compatible with the finest instruments.
Building the sensor 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. 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.
Fits banjos with a minimum of about 1-1/8" between tension rails, may not fit banjos with closer rail spacing. Requires about 3/16" clearance behind rails for mounting bracket.
