The Banjo Twin pickup system is designed to reproduce the true banjo sound with very natural tone quality and with very little effect on the acoustic tone. The Banjo Twin works well in passive mode, especially if acoustic amps are used.
The Banjo Twin does not require any alteration of your valuable instrument; all the components are installed with special double side tape or self adhesive fasteners. These will not harm the finish of your instrument and residues can be removed with WD-40.
The two pickups are installed on the inside of the banjo head using a special removable self-adhesive fastening system, specially designed for the installation on the banjo head. This adhesive is installed to the two outer edges of the pickups only. We call this the "Catamaran" mounting technique. Using this technique, the center portion of the pickup is free-floating, enhancing response while reducing the adhesive surface by about 40% and therefore having only very little effect on the acoustic sound.
