The ACB Barrel uses a direct sensing of the head under or near the center bridge post. By placing a small shim of steel under the center bridge post, the pickup senses the movement of the steel and produces a signal. Alternately, the steel can be placed pretty much anywhere inside the banjo as long as the pickup can be placed over the steel shim. The pickup uses a battery operated pre-amp to help shape the response of the signal as well as reduce noise. The installation is completely solderless and is designed for banjos with 2 coordinator rods, but other mounting arrangements can be accommodated. Package includes: 1 pickup; 1 pickup mounting bracket; 2 pickup adjustment spacers; 1 preamp / battery board; 1 volume / output jack; 2 connect cables.
