Manufacturer's Description

RevolutionaryA banjo pickup that allows your banjo to sound like your banjo, only louder. The BJ-02 Series offers both good sound and good feedback rejection along with simple, non-invasive installation. 

The BJ-02 pickup sensor is installed on the underside of the banjo head and is normally placed directly under and inline with the center foot of the bridge. The pickup is totally non-damping. It does not interfere in any way with the natural acoustic tone or output of the banjo.

All four BJ-02 models have jack assemblies that clamp simply and easily to the tensioning hooks of the banjo in the same manner as a banjo's arm rest.

More Choice - Added to the BJ-02 lineup is our new BJ-02M pickup and condenser mic system. This new model features our famous BJ-02 sensor combined a powered condenser microphone. Rounding out the lineup are the BJ-02 with a simple metal jack assembly, the BJ-02 Std with our hand finished rosewood jack assembly and the BJ-02 Pro with our ABS jack assembly complete with an  integrated volume control.

Features

  • The BJ-02 series sensor is designed to work on any banjo. Five string, tenor, six string, open backs; all sound excellent with this pickup.Installation of the pickup system takes about ten minutes and everything that you need to complete the installation is included with the system.
  • This particular placement of the sensor allows the pickup to "hear" just what the banjo is doing. The center foot of the bridge is driving the element directly for maximum output and clarity and it is due to this same placement of the element that also gives the BJ-02's their superior anti-feedback characteristics. It is very difficult for feedback to drive the pickup in reverse due to the overall stiffness of the bridge area.
  • On a 'normal' banjo with a three footed bridge, the pickup is to be installed on the underside of the head directly under the centre foot of the bridge. On tenor banjos or banjos having a two footed bridge, the suggested placement for the pickup is on the underside of the head directly under the bass side bridge foot.
  • The BJ-02 comes with a simple metal jack assembly that clamps to the tensioning hooks - the same as our BJ-02 Std and BJ-02 Pro models. The BJ-02 is the only model of banjo pickup with a jack assembly that will fit all standard banjos, as well as the Deering Goodtime banjos. Please read the information in the 'Technical' tab on this page about tensioning hook spacing and Deering Goodtime banjos.
  • The BJ-02 Std. comes with our NBJA rosewood bodied jack assembly with a 1/4" output jack. The new BJ-02 Pro features a small black ABS jack assembly with a 1/4" output jack and an integrated volume control. These jack assemblies nestle in tight against the tensioning hooks and simply clamp to those tensioning hooks in the same way that a normal arm rest attaches.
  • This pickup has been designed to operate properly and sound terrific without the use of a preamp when plugged into any 'normal' amp (guitar amp, bass amp, etc.). As with any pickup, the sound can be further enhanced with an outboard preamp. If you require the added ability to be able to plug directly into a P.A. or mixer then you may wish to add our  Mini Pre belt clipable preamp to your pickup system.
