Fifth String Capo - HO Gauge Railroad Spikes - Used by most pros. Caution - Must be installed by experienced banjo repair luthier! Holes MUST be drilled first so the fingerboard will not split or the spike will not bend. Placement is critical: The spike must be located so that the fingerboard will not split or the capoed string will not buzz on a higher fret/spike, and so the spike tip will not project out of the neck.

1/4 inch length (photo, left) - Recommended if you only want spikes at 7th. & 9th. fret. Pack of six - $2.00 free P&H. Add to Cart

5/8 inch length (photo, right) - Longer but slightly thinner, recommended if you want to place spikes at other than,7th. and 9th. frets, (less chance of splitting fingerboard) or if you like extremely low action (the head of the spike is slightly smaller). Pack of six - $2.00 free P&H. Add to Cart

 

Shubb capo replacement sleeve - $2.00. free P&H. Add to Cart

 

 

Note: There are various fifth string capos that are designed to fit under the fifth string, basiclly a movanble nut. We do not carry these because in my opinoon, they have a detrimental effect on banjo tone, because they move with the vibrating string. Yes, they are inexpensive. You get what you pay for ~ Jack Hatfield

Standard Angled

ProPick Fingerpicks - STD or ANG refers to the degree of the blade angle. STD is straight, like normal picks. ANG is angledt towards the thumb to allow a more perpendicular strike. The number (1, 2, or 3) refers to the blade width and the sharpness of the tip, NOT the degree of angle.The sharper the tip, the brighter (more treble) the tone, the duller the tip, the fuller (bassier) the tone. "1" indicates a sharper point (brighter), "3" indicates a more rounded tip (bassier). The composition of the metal affects the tone as well. Nicke lproduces a brighter tone while brass produces a mellower tone. All Propicks we offer are double-banded for easier shaping and a more comfortable, contoured fit. $7.00/set of 2, $38.00 per dozen. Free shipping if accompanied by "postage due" item(s).

Schatten Banjo Pickup - Revolutionary - A banjo pickup that allows your banjo to sound like your banjo, only louder. The BJ-02 Series offers both good sound and good feedback rejection along with simple, non-invasive installation.

The BJ-02 pickup sensor is installed on the underside of the banjo head and is normally 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 with the natural acoustic tone or output of the banjo.The BJ-02 pickup sensor is installed on the underside of the banjo head and is normally placed directly under and inline with the center foot of the bridge.

All three BJ-02 models have jack assemblies that clamp simply and easily to the tensioning hooks of the banjo in the same manner as a banjo's arm rest.

More Choice - Added to the BJ-02 lineup is the new BJ-02 Player. This new model features the famous BJ-02 sensor combined with a simplified metal jack assembly. Rounding out the lineup are the BJ-02 Std with our hand finished rosewood jack assembly and the BJ-02 Pro with our ABS jack assembly complete with an integrated volume control.

Jones-Hatfied Banjo Pickup

 

Available again! Jack Hatfield has redesigned the popular Gerald Jones Acoustic Plus banjo pickup!

The Gerald Jones pickup, known to produce the most natural pickup amplified sound possible, has been out of production for several years. This pickup features a magnetic coil/ inductor strip design. Mounts on co-ordinator rods with thumbscrew. The 3.5mm" jack mounts easily in flange hole, does not require routing a groove in inside of resonater as previous Gerald Jones 1/4" jack sometimes did. No drilling, screws or soldering required-installs in two minutes! New jack mounting bracket now available for Stelling banjos.

Improvements over the original Gerald Jones design:

More powerful signal - 10% more windings and a stronger magnet.

Improved shielded coil-to-jack cable, re-routed out the back of the pickup so it clears the co-ordinater rods.

Plastic non-conducting enclosure replaces metal enclosure - less interference with electromagnetic field.

Spacer on mounting bracket to more accurately center pickup under head.

Enclosed 3.5mm jack replaces open back 1/4" jack - avoids possible electrical shorts if finger pick is dropped through flange hole or the jack gets bumped while the resonater is unattached to the banjo. The smaller 3.5mm jack will not interfere with resonater mounting as the 1/4 inch jack did on the original Gerald tJomes pickup.

Jack mountng bracket - jack no longer mounts directly in the flange hole. Bracket made from insulating plastic to avoid ground hum. Can now be mounted on Stelling Banjos.

Includes both 24" cable to connect to belt preamp and six foot cable to connect directly to amp or PA.

Lifetime Guarantee! We will replace at no charge if purchased from Hatfield Music.

Why does the Jones-Hatfield pickup have a more natural acoustic sound than the Fishman? It's because the Fishman is an active pickup, but the Jones - Hatfield pickup is a passive pickup. An active pickup is one that has voltage supplied at the coil, like a condenser microphone. When voltage is applied at te coil there is a small amount of distortion. It is the same thing as over- driving the individual channel volume on a PA...or producing distortion on an electric guitar.This is how rock guitarists like Jimi Hendrix first created distortion in the late 1960's - they turned the pot on the guitar and the individual channel on the amp (preamp) all the way up, over-driving the main amp.

With an active pickup there is no way to CONTROL the voltage and impedance in the coil - it is determined by the guage of the wire in the coil, the number of windings and the amount of voltage going through the coil...all stationary aspects that cannot be altered by the banjo player. With a passive pickup such as the Jones - Hatfield pickup, the voltage is controlled by user via the pre-amp, such as the Schatten Mini-Pre or the Fishman GII guitar pre-amp.

The advantage of the Fishman GII pre-amp over the Schatten is that you have fingertip control of volume and TONE (with a three-band Equalizer)... on your belt...you do not have to turn around and adjust the amp or use a volume pedal which means fewer cables underfoot and electronics that can go wrong.The disadvantage is that the GII is much larger and bulkier clipped to your belt.


Better results will be obtained by taping the inductor strip under the head instead of placing it under the middle foot of the bridge...not only can the the inductor be positioned closer to the coil (which means more gain) but you can move it around for different tone...near the middle of the head for a mid range tone, or nearer the tailpiece area of the head for a more treble tone.

Note: this pickup is designed for resonater banjos with two co-ordinater rods of equal diameter. Installs in any Gibson-style banjo (Gibson, Huber, Rich & Taylor, (Tennessee), Neat, (Stanleytone), Arthur Hatfield, Imperial. Also, Gibson style imports including Gold Tone, Gold Star, Recording King, Washburn, Epiphone, Aria, Ibanez, Morgan Monroe, etc) Deering, Stelling (with the specail off-center jack mounting bracket).

Though it can be rigged for many travel banjos. open-back banjos and Nechville banjos which do not have two co-ordinater rods, Hatfeld Music does not guarantee it will intstall in these instruments. Often a fake co-ordinater rod will have to be made or the pickup bracket can be glued or otherwise fastened to a square dowel stick. A 7'8" clearance between the rod/dowelstick and the head is required.

Any returns due to failure to install properly or on the correct style banjo will be deducted the standard 15% re-stock fee. ALL RETURNS MUST BE AUTHORIZED IN ADVANCE.

Adapter: Six-inch cable adapter, .35mm. right angle male to 1/4" straight female. Links Jones-Hatfield banjo pickup to wireless belt transmitter or standard instrument cable with male 1/4" male end. This adapter may be required if the 6-foot cable provided with the Jones-Hatfield pickup is not long enough or of desired gauge, or if a standard instruemnt cable is preferred so it can used with various other instruments feeding into the into the same amp or direct box).

MOUNTABLE MICROPHONES

A mountable microphone system is essential equipment for the performing banjoist or resonator guitar player who wants the most acoustic sound possible. By attaching a microphone to the end of a small gooseneck cable, the ABS reliably captures the music you generate at the precise sweet spot where your instrument sounds the best. For the utmost volume and the most tone and feedback control in large venues, many performers (such as Bela Fleck) use a pickup such as the Jones-Hatfield pickup and a microphone such as the ABS and blend the two signals.

GOLD TONE ABS MIC SYSTEM for banjo, dobro, and upright bass.


Gooseneck mounted dynamic cardioid mic attaches easily to banjo hooks or a resophonic guitar tailpiece. Stompbox EQ included with optional belt clip. Mic bracket attaches easily with a large thumbscrew, 1/4" output jack is permanently mounted to the assembly. EQ operates on 9v battery, included. Requires two standard instrument cables (not included).

The advantage of the ABS over the ABS-C is that it will work with any PA system or amp. The ABS-C requires Phantom power, so if you play through a variety of sound systems, especially older ones, the ABS-C may not work at every venue. The disadvantage is that the ABS does not have as much volume as the ABS-C, but there should be enough gain on any standard PA system or amp to get the necessary volume. If not, a pre-amp such as the Fishman GII or the Schatten Design Mini-Pre can be used.

Gold Tone ABS-C Microphone for banjo, dobro, and upright bass.

This exciting superior sounding new condenser banjo microphone easily attaches to any banjo or resonator guitar in seconds and amplifies the true acoustic tone.
Gold Tone has announced the introduction of a new banjo and resonator guitar Condenser microphone system called the ABS-C. It has a higher output than the dynamic system. Like the current Gold Tone ABS, the ABS-C attaches to any 2 brackets to accommodate positioning for desired sound.

The Gold Tone ABS-C Banjo and Resonator Guitar Condenser Microphone system easily attaches to any banjo or resonator guitar in seconds and amplifies the true acoustic tone. The ABS-C is a condenser microphone and requires phantom power.

Phantom power is an electrical current to power the coil in the microphone which is generated by the PA system or amplifier. If your PA head or amp has Phantom power, there will be a switch labeled 'Phantom Power" that turns it on. If you do not find a switch, assume your system does not have Phantom power, and get the ABS dunamic microphone shown to the left.

The ABS-C is shock mounted to prevent the introduction of extraneous vibrations. With no exposed wiring, the ABS-C can be transferred from one instrument to another in seconds. The ABS-C requires phantom power and connection to the sound system is accomplished with the included cable (¼ ” TRS to XLR). Includes a soft carring case.

Its main advantage over a traditional cradle strap is that it can be adjusted while wearing the banjo instead of having to remove the banjo for adjustment.The buffalo leather has proven to be the softest yet strongest and most comfortable strap you will ever wear.

About the "cradle style" strap attachment system
A cradle style strap is one that supports the banjo from the bottom, the banjo resting in the strap as one would cradle a baby, instead of dangling from hooks which can damage the edge of the resonater on heavier, nicer instruments. Another fault of hook-style attachments: if the bracket the strap is attached to becomes loose, the banjo could crash to the floor. The cradle style strap attachment is vastly superior because it is more secure and has no metal parts in contact with the wood parts of the banjo. The strap ends are fed under the brackets until a designated bracket is selected for attachment. Then the strap end is looped over the bracket and is attached to itself with a Chicago screw (shoestring or leather lace can also be used). The length of the strap (how far down the banjo hangs) is determined by which brackets are chosen to attach the strap ends. (The Dogwood strap also featuress an adjustment that involves holes in the strap which the ends are fed through...more range of adjustment but not as sleek looking). The higher you want the banjo to rest, the closer the strap ends are to each other under the banjo. The Showcase, Dogwood and Anti-Gravity straps all use the cradle style attachment system. The Anti-Gravity strap has the extra feature of quick-release buckles so you may disengage the banjo from the strap. The other cradle-style straps remain attached to the banjo at both ends at all times.

Chicago screws are used to secure the strap ends.Lace or string can also be used.
