Schatten SDBJ02MKIT Combination Pickup and Condenser Microphone System
Fits All Banjos – 4, 5, and 6 String
The Schatten SDBJ02MKIT Combination Pickup and Condenser Microphone System is Schatten’s newest model of banjo pickup the BJ-02M. By combining an interior mounted powered condenser mic with our proven BJ-02, we have produced a banjo system that provides a fullness of sound that was not possible before. The new BJ-02M adds an internally mounted powered condenser microphone and a 2 channel Mini Pre 2 outboard belt clipable preamp to our outstanding BJ-02 to provide unparalleled sound quality.
Revolutionary – When we introduced the BJ-02 series of pickups about 12 years ago we said that it was ….”A banjo pickup that allows your banjo to sound like your banjo, only louder”…. The addition of the M powered condenser microphone in the BJ-02M opens up the sound and allows for more natural tonality. So we could say that the BJ-02M allows your banjo to sound like your banjo, only more so.The new BJ-02M system offers good feedback rejection along with simple, non-invasive installation.
Existing BJ-02 Owners – We haven’t forgotten you. M Kits are available to upgrade your existing Schatten banjo pickup. The information on the M Kits is available under the ‘Technical’ tab on this page.
Other brands of banjo pickups – Testing has determined that the BJ-02 M-Kit upgrade will work properly with all other brands of banjo pickups including magnetic pickups. Please check under the ‘Technical’ tab on this page for further details.
