I was looking for a suitable pick up for my banjo ukulele. There are many different products available and a range of prices (some are very cheap...). After quite a bit of research I decided to go for one of the more costly ones. The reasons for this are mainly based around the quality of the build and the quality of the sound. Banjos & banjo ukuleles can be difficult to amplify fin a sympathetic way. I looked at many different luthiers around the world to see what pick ups they fitted and K&K banjo twin kept coming up.

Fitting was fairly straightforward although I did have to contact K&K customer service as I found the instructions slightly confusing (the pick ups come with the adhesive pads already attached and the pads in the set are spares!). K&K responded really quickly and were very friendly.

This item has the bonus of being able to fit the jack plug internal or external using the Velcro attachments provided. I opted for the external and since fitting the Velcro fitted jack plug it has not moved at all.

As a passive pick up there is not much to go wrong with them. The sound is great (loud) but in my option still needs to go through an external preamp to shape the sound.

Banjos ring
01.12.2014
Purchased banjo, I took it pretty soon, according to the training room and when I heard that banjossa is so loud that it does not need amplifiers, I went to try. Yes, I noticed immediately that the band is and we play the drums electrified country music banjo so the sound will indeed too much in the background.

No problem, I will examine quite a long time a variety of ways to get the band playing the banjo to read. I ordered K & K TWIN Banjo and I installed it (easily) banjoon and tuning up after yak a suitable position, so that I got a banjo strap to pass without calling on the jack pressure between the yak and banjo metal ring.

I put the guitar on the settings MesaBoogiini banjo and although volume was pretty low, began to banjosta a sizable acoustic rotation. Well, while I took a local store instructions, what can I do to remove the cycle: I set the tone controls to the 0 position and then I applied the proper volume levels and looked at the banjo and the amplifier angle and distance, and added after a little (about first gear) bass-tone in.

And AVOT: banjo began to fall and volume I was able to raise at least sufficient band playing. Microphones convert some natural sound banjo in my view, brighter than normal and may interfere with the cowl banjo inside the installation, which affects the resonance.

However, I had tyytäväinen with this purchase, even if the sound of the banjo must therefore little change. But now that we have a banjo country music band in use after all, so it is quite a different feel to it and bring much-needed vibes playing.
