The Schatten BJ-02 Std is a high quality, high output pickup designed to work with any banjo. Tremendous sound is yours, whether you play a 5 string, a 4 string or even a 6 string banjo. It will work flawlessly on any kind of banjo. The BJ-02 PRO pickup is installed on the underside of the banjo head and is usually 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 whatsoever with natural acoustic tone or output of the banjo. 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. This same placement of the element also gives the BJ-02 PRO its 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. Installation of the pickup system takes about ten minutes and everything that you need to complete the installation is included with the system. On a typical 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 STD comes completely wired to Schatten's MVC-PLUS jack assembly. This jack assembly simply clamps to your banjo in the same way a normal arm rest attaches: to the tensioning screws. No modification is necessary to either the banjo or the jack assembly. The MVC-PLUS jack includes an integrated volume control.
