Similar to our EBM (Electric 5-string Banjo), our unique F-style design looks as good as it sounds. The two-tone tobacco sunburst finish is pleasantly set off by the chrome hardware. It has easy to reach control knobs for quick tone and volume changes. The humbucker pickup under the head and stacked humbucker at the neck allow for a variety of different tones when plugged in and the acoustic volume is still loud enough to cut through in an acoustic jam. This 19-fret tenor banjo is normally tuned CGDA.
The EBM Pickup System
The EBM is equipped with two pickups; a humbucker under the banjo head in the bridge position, and a stacked humbucker in the neck position. There is a 3-way selector knob that allows the player to switch between the neck pickup only (position up), both the neck and bridge pickup simultaneously (center position), and the bridge pickup only (position down). The three knobs consist of a volume knob for each pickup (2) and a master tone knob (1). Blending between the two pickups utilizing both volume knobs is possible when the 3-way pickup selector is in the center position and both pickups are activated.
