Banjo has become a hot instrument in many modern groups where the
term bluegrass is just not big enough to define it. New folk and
rock acts are erupting in live venues everywhere. As role of the
banjo expands, more players are finding need for powerful
amplification without the troubles associated with playing through a
Banjo pickups have been around a long time. There are several
easy methods of picking up the sound of the banjo, especially
through Piezo transducers and magnetic pickups. Specialized
microphones are also in common use. It has traditionally been a
problem solved differently by nearly every musician finding the need
for amplification. While at this point, no one solution seems to
prevail. A combination of sound sources is necessary to reproduce a
natural, lifelike amplified acoustic tone. Nechville in concert
with EMG has recently unveiled a new banjo sensor a that has a more
natural, yet big and fat sound. Nechville has combined the newest
pickup technology in a dual pickup system giving
players more control over their sound than before.
We have improved the design by placing the control module inside
the banjo. Heli-mount owners will be glad to learn that the
completely new dual pickup solution works regardless of the
existence of coordinator rods. The Warp Drive has a control module containing magnetic
volume, Piezo acoustic volume and overall tone control. 9 volt
battery and a ¼" phone cord jack.
The Warp Drive installs under the head in seconds, and quick connect
wires mean no soldering. It comes with everything needed for quick
installation, including the 9 volt battery.
