Dual Source Pickup

Warp Drive

Blend the two best pickup types into one. The Warp Drive allows you to blend the warmth of the EMG magnetic with the natural shimmery sound of the Schatten piezo. The EMG ACB has a nice thick sound with smooth transients and details mids. Then blend in the piezo- which captures the rich harmonics that accurately reflect the banjo's top end.

Just like our banjos, these are built by hand right in our Nechville shop in Minnesota.

The Warp Drive is mounted with the help of a very tough spring. It is designed for our resonator banjos, as the resonator conceals and protects the electronics. Inquire about the adapted Warp Drive that fits coordinator rod banjos.
