The ABS system is essential equipment for the performing banjoist or resonator player. By attaching a dynamic cardoid microphone to the end of a small gooseneck cable, the ABS reliably captures the music you generate at the precise sweet spot where you sound the best. Attachment and adjustment for ideal placement is simple and easy. ABS is shock mounted to prevent the introduction of extraneous vibrations. With no exposed wiring, ABS can be transferred from one banjo to another in seconds. The ABS system includes a floorbox- type pre-amp (ABS-2) which, when activated by a footswitch, will increase gain (volume) to punch out lead breaks.
The SMP+ is an updated version of the original SMP that requires no soldering or hole cut out in rim. Can also be adjusted so it does not touch the banjo head. You have three sticky wire ties to secure the loose wire in the inside of the rim.
The ABS Banjo/Resonator Guitar Microphone system easily attaches to any banjo or resonator guitar in seconds and amplifies the true acoustic tone. The ABS-C is a condenser microphone and requires phantom power.
Our second generation banjo pickup features a quiet humbucking coil, a powerful neodymium magnet assembly and a specially designed preamp to strengthen and preserve the natural sound of the banjo. Fits dual coordinator rod instruments and may be modified to fit single rod banjos.
The Kavanjo Banjo Pickup System is a magnetic humbucking pickup and jack suspended from a customized mylar head. This is the newest and we believe the most effective way to amplify ANY banjo, while maintaining the instruments authentic characteristics.
