The ABS system is quickest and easiest way to amplify your banjo or resonator guitar. It combines a dynamic microphone (with the versatile cardioid pattern) and a compact gooseneck coupled to a shock mounted adjustable bracket that has no exposed wiring. The ABS reliably captures the sound of your banjo or reso-guitar at the precise spot you prefer for the tone you're after, without the annoyance of extraneous vibrations. ABS can be moved from one instrument to another in seconds and includes a stomp-box preamp (our 9-volt-powered ABS-2). A footswitch can increase gain (volume) to punch out lead breaks. An AC adapter is available (ABS-ADT). Connection to the sound system or amp is via standard 1/4" guitar cable; two cables are required for connection with preamp and amplifier. ABS comes in a hard plastic carrying case with fitted foam inserts for the mic and pedal.

New for 2016, the Gold Tone BG-150F brings the beautiful appearance of the great pre-WWII banjos to a new, lower price point. This banjo offers the player the lovely hearts-and-flowers fretboard inlay and the fully-bound neck and fourteen-inch resonator of the Gold Tone BG-250F combined with lightweight playing comfort (made possible by installing a quarter-inch brass-rod tone ring rather than the nearly three-pound bell brass ring in the BG-250F). Little is lost in sound quality or power, and long gigs played standing up become much more bearable. Comes with a gig bag! Available as left-handed model.
