Banjo pickup

Very satisfied with the customer service for one. As far as the pickup goes I can't be more pleased. My best friend and I recently started playing on stage rather than on street corners and we needed a way to be able to plug his banjo in without sacrificing the natural sound that the banjo has to offer, I did plenty of research and read many reviews and this one kept popping up as to be the best. I also was looking for something that wasn't intrusive or visual along with an easy installation so that I can do it myself and so that we could slap it on a new banjo when he decides to upgrade and this pickup did exactly that in every category.. all that aside the rich tone that it provides is so impressive in that the banjo still sounds like the banjo we're used to hearing unplugged. I just really love sweetwater and how easy they make it to be a musician these days, because we all know gear is not cheap and for starving artists like ourselves that can't just dish out $300 for a banjo pick up because we needed it to take what we're doing to The next level, sweetwater made that possible and we appreciate it. Thank you!
