Subject: RE: Banjo Talk - Long Neck and Head Tension

Like you, I prefer to use the Seeger approach particularly in accompanying singing.

I put a dynamic neodymium mic in the pot and duct-taped it onto the cross-bar. Then, I got me a AC cord that has a female XLR on one end and a quarter-inch jack on the other. Now I can plug into the sound system or a guitar amp. There doesn't seem to be much problem with feedback since the drumhead acts as kind of a shield.
