    Comments about Fishman Bluegrass Series Rare Earth Banjo Pickup:

    I've struggled to amplify banjo for many years. I've also tried many of the leading name brand banjo pickups. The Fishman rare earth pickup has a powerful signal and good, balanced tone. The quality is also impressive.
    I would buy it again and recommend it to a friend. Johnny Banjo

    Comments about Fishman Bluegrass Series Rare Earth Banjo Pickup:

    The unit would not fit between the banjo head and the truss rods, the bracket is too tall for a banjo with a back, the battery holder had to be mounted in a different location, and the 1/4" jack bracket would not fit, forcing me to make my own. I have done these kind of installs before, but never had to modify a product this much. I know the warranty is now void on my new pickup as a result. I will say however, it does sound great once installed. I am not so sure I would recommend this particular pickup, unless you are able, and willing to buy it, and be ready to remodel your new pickup, or your banjo.
