Kavanjo Banjo Pickup System

13 Reviews

The Kavanjo Banjo Pickup System is a magnetic humbucking pickup and jack suspended from a customized mylar head. This is the newest and we believe the most effective way to amplify ANY banjo, while maintaining the instruments authentic characteristics.

Use your own banjo! Requires no pre-amp! Made in the USA!
Everything is in the head so just change the head and you have a pickup installed!

Hand made by John Kavanaugh in Salt Lake City, Utah, the Kavanjo pickups are the leader in banjo pickups.

“The banjo is a fairly loud instrument acoustically but very difficult to amplify. Through a mic the banjo often sounds harsh and thin. Most banjo pickups over emphasize the treble tone of the instrument and miss the tonal depth. The Kavanjo pickup gets it just right....your banjo only louder! When I am playing a concert with Doc Watson we often play for 2000 people, sometimes and many as 250,000. A mic just won’t deliver the full tonal range of the banjo when it is cranked for giant audiences. Even in these extreme situations the Kavanjo performs perfectly. It allows me to keep the banjo in the mix even when Doc is plugged in and at high volume.

Thank goodness there is finally a great pickup that amplifies the tonal warmth and power of the banjo!” - David Holt

Used by artists such as:
Mumford and Sons
Taylor Swift
Eric Church
Kacey Musgraves
Keith Urban
Dropkick Murphys
Elle King

    Sounds great!

    I have only had it for a few weeks, but I love it so far. I hope it will last a long time.

    Kavanjo banjo head

    The Kavanjo banjo head is the best I’ve ever had. I’ve use many but the Kavanjo is best. I’ve played for James Monroe, Jim&Jesse McReynolds,& The Hemphills years ago. I wish I had the Kavanjo playing with The Hemphills concerts. Love the Kavanjo banjo head.

    Goodtime/Kavanjo

    I installed on Goodtime and Goodtime 2. I run into a Fender Blues Jr with most mids and highs rolled off, sounds very warm. I had a question during install, builder Mr Kavanaugh was most helpful. With the sale at Banjo Studio I was able to buy several items at great prices. Happy buyer here.
