I just want to share this information with you because it's been 4 years now I'm playing banjo and never really found a satisfying way to amplify my banjo without feed back and without loosing the natural sound of my banjo.
This weekend I've tried to use my Kavanjo pickup AND my Gold Tone ABS-C Condenser Mic at the same time. They were both plugged into a 8 entry soundcraft console to give 48V phantom power to the mic and after to a Boss tuner pedal and a boost pedal. (I put a noise reducer foam, or whatever it's called, on the condenser mic)
The sound was amazing! Everybody told me that they heard the banjo very well. We were a band of 8 musicians with a drum, electric guitar, B3 Organ and fiddle...
This setup in not cheap I know but it worth it.

My Name is Jeremy, I am 21 years old. I started playing electric guitar when I was 12. I could not find a band to play music so I wanted to learn a new instrument. Where I come from, the traditionnal music is very popular so I tried the fiddle but I did not liked it. I decided to learn the banjo by myself and I became the only "real" bluegrass style banjo player in my town. I have bring the banjo sound to my band Capsayé to go along with the electric guitar and drum. We are now going to a more accoustic sound. I reccorded the banjo in the album "Pour Longtemps" by the part-time musician Keven Landry and I'm now one of is musician.
