When playing along with modern amplified instruments, my banjo was getting drowned out. The problem with using a mic was that it also picked up the other instruments.
I just tried using a Fishman V100 violin pickup, it works pretty well. I carved up a new bridge and embedded the pickup in the bridge. I can now be 'lectrified when I need to be.
