The Crossfire has two powerful magnetic pickups under the head, one in the neck position and the other by the bridge. Metal is attached to the feet of the bridge so that the pickups draw sound from both the strings and the head. Active electronics assure you of a wide frequency response.
By retaining a full and functional banjo head, this new instrument gets more banjo sound than a solid body electric banjo. A brass tone-ring is under the head. The hooks for tightening the head pass through the alder body and are adjusted from the back in recessed holes. Standard color is black but other colors can be custom ordered. The neck is blond maple with an ebony fingerboard and diamond shaped mother-of-pearl inlays. Guitar-style tuners provide accuracy in tuning and allow the Crossfire to fit in an electric guitar case.
Knobs adjust tone and volume and a switch selects between the pickups or in the middle position plays them both. Imagine, adjusting the bass or treble on your banjo at the turn of a knob or just flipping a switch to get a different sound!
With the Crossfire you have all the power you need and you are in full control!
Each banjo we supply is individually set up in our on-site Banjo Specialist Workshop here at Eagle Music. Any Banjo purchased from Eagle will be fully SET UP, checked for intonation and playability and tuned ready for playing straight out of the box!
