Gold Tone SMP+ Sliding Magnetic Banjo Pickup

Monthly payments available Learn more

 Easily convert your banjo into an electric music note slinging machine!  Designed to work on banjos constructed with dual coordinator rods.

The SMP+ is a Sliding Magnetic Pickup that requires no soldering, and no need to drill a hole through the banjo's rim. It's installed onto the coordinator rods and it can be slid to any position between the neck and the bridge to get the tone you like. The jack is mounted to the j-hooks on the u set side of the rim.  This works best on standard 11” bluegrass style banjos.  Some shoe bracket style banjos my not fit well without modification to the mounting bracket.  Mounting the SMP is very easy and requires no special tools other than the included hex wrench.

The pick-up kit contains:

  • 1 SMP pickup with slotted bracket and two screws and wing nuts
  • 1 Output Jack with mounting plate and two screws and nuts
  • 1 Accessory kit containing 3 stick wire clamps and 1 hex wrench
  • Also available with volume control as the SMP+VC
