Schatten BJ-02 Series Pickups for Banjos

Fits All Banjos - 4, 5, and 6 String

Finally - A banjo pickup that allows your banjo to sound like your banjo, only louder. The BJ-02 Series offers great sound and tone reproduction, has excellent feedback supression, and is simple to fit.

The virtually weightless BJ-02 pickup sensor aheres to the underside of the banjo head directly under and inline with the centre 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.  The jack assemblies clamps easily to the tensioning hooks of the banjo in the same manner as a banjo's arm rest.

The BJ-02 comes in three different models:
BJ-02 Player: with simple 1/4" metal jack bracket
BJ-02 Standard: with rosewood bodied 1/4" jack assembly
BJ-02 Pro: with black NBJA plus volume control jack assembly 

...and we've added yet another new model to our BJ-02 lineup. Check out the New BJ-02 M Microphone and Pickup System here
