Hello to everybody!
This is my first topic, my name's Filippo and I'm typing from Italy. I've got a question.
I've got a Kavanjo pick up mounted in the banjo that I play with my electric band. I'm searching for a good D.I. and I'm really interested to the Tonedexter (audiosprockets.com/tonedexter/).
So, on the homepage of the product, I found that it works better with piezo pickups and it may don't work properly with magnetic ones.
I would like to ask if any of you has/had experience with this combo (Kavanjo-Tonedexter)? Does it works or not?
What is the best pick up for a banjo with a Tonedexter?
I hope you can help me!

I would think that either type of pickup would work.

That thing looks pretty neat, never seen a preamp that "learns" like that. Too bad it's so expensive.

Yeah, I think so... I must sell my kavanjo...
But someone told me the kavanjo can make it... I would like to hear all I can before making changes
I've never seen a better preamp, it's expensive but I think it's the definitive solution nowadays...
Thanks a lot

I’ve tried with an EMG magnetic banjo pickup and it didn’t work. So I bought a piezo and it’s great. I use a Pick Up the World banjo pickup.

There are a bunch of folks on the Acoustic Guitar Forum that tried the Tonedexter with a magnetic pickup and had very poor results.



Initially the press was great, but I notice a lot of the early adopters are now dumping them.

Yeah! It works good with piezos...
