EMG Pickups has introduced the new ACB dual-coil banjo pickup.

The ACB was developed by EMG founder and President Rob Turner and combines three technologies to capture the unique tone of a banjo.

 

The first is having a dual-coil pickup, which means the coils are spaced apart from each other to enhance frequency response. The second is that the ACB is an active pickup with the preamp boosting the signal and is designed to ensure the pickup is noise free. As mentioned above, the coils are spaced apart which allows “air gaps” to be built into the pickup. These air gaps are designed to allow sound waves inside the banjo to resonate between the coil walls. Each ACB is supplied with “Air Plugs” that can be used to fill the gaps to control the amount of microphonics the pickup has. The third technology is the included thin strip (.002 thick) of shim steel. This strip of steel can be placed in a variety of places near one of the coils, between them, or over the top of either of the coils. The strip is another addition to the tone; it is not a necessary element to make the pickup work.

 

The ACB is now in production at EMG’s California factory.

 

Pricing:

$329.99 MSRP
