The ABS-C Banjo and Dobro Pickup is a clip on small mic with an adjustable gooseneck so you can position it for the best sound and gets double the gain without a preamp.
We’ve had enormous success with our ABS clip on mic for banjos and resonator guitars and now have a condenser mic version. It has 50% more gain, uses phantom power and includes a carrying case and connecting cable.
You can purchase it with a preamp or get the condensor version for the same price. The condensor version requires "phantom power" Phantom power boosts the signal 50% without a preamp. Almost all PA systems now a days are phantom power ready.
