    Comments about Shadow SH B1 Twin Disc Transducer for Banjo:

    I needed a decent banjo pick-up that would eliminate the need for standing in front of a microphone. While most pick-ups of this nature fail to capture the instrument's true tone, it does do a pretty good of amplifying the sound. That being said, most banjos don't have the tonal qualities of other acoustic instruments in the first place but it does help to be heard when you're performing with other musicians. In my instance I was performing on a large church stage in front of 2,500 people, so it needed to work and did very well. My only complaint with it is where to put the transducers. Pictures show them being placed under the bridge feet. This does not work. The first thing that happens is that once you bring the strings back to pitch, the bridge will lean forward because its no longer sitting flat on the head. Even if you manage to get the bridge to stay erect the instrument will now be out of intonation since you've raised the bridge. I even tried placing the transducers under the tailpiece but couldn't get sufficient downward pressure to make them effective. Believe it or not I resorted to sticking them to the head by overlaying them with clear duct tape, then overlaid them with a guitar saddle laid flat across with more duct tape to keep them pressed firmly down. Yes, its a little sloppy but it worked great. Bottom line - if you can get the transducers pressed firmly on to the head they WILL work and you will be heard.
