Description Specs Media

As well as a master volume control, players can dial in the tone even more with the addition of a blend control, the centre position of which is marked with a centre notch. This allows for a seemingly endless combination of Kavanjo® and piezo mix, bringing out the best from both pick ups and truly enhancing the natural sound of the banjo itself.
