These are the Banjo Pickups we recommend for the best tone and acoustic reproduction. Amplifying a banjo with a pickup is tricky and some pickups work a lot better than others. The best banjo pickup is one that affects the natural tone of the banjo the least. Any banjo pickup that touches the banjo head is not recommended. If the pickup affects the vibration of the banjo head that will change the tone of the banjo. You also want a pickup that you don't need to remove or can remove easily when you are playing your banjo acoustically or when not needing the pickup. .
We have the Fishman Rare Earth Banjo Pickups, LR Baggs Banjo Bridge Pickup, the Kavanjo Banjo head pickup, the Gold Tone SMP Plus humbucker banjo pickup Gold Tone ABS banjo microphone and other banjo pickup options.

Using a preamp with your banjo pickup not only gives you a boost but it gives you a whole extra level of control of your banjo tone tone before it goes to the Amp or PA. I've always used an additional preamp when using a banjo pickup. It's for sure the way to go. The amps for banjo we carry can also be used in lieu of a preamp as an extra level of tone control because of their direct out to the main PA feature. If you are not using an amp before your signal goes to the PA though I for sure recommend using a preamp for extra tone and volume control before sending the signal to the main PA.
The Fishman preamps in your signal-chain helps you perfectly match your pickup to your amp.

These are the best sounding amplifiers for banjos that I've tried. They reproduce natural acoustic banjo tone and also feature reverb, delay, chorus with inputs for vocal and instruments. They are compact and are perfect for playing solo or with bands.
