    Clip-On Pickup for Acoustic Guitar

    Easily tune your acoustic guitar or amplify it's sound with this Clip-On Pickup from Monoprice!

    This Pickup easily clips on to the hole of your acoustic guitar. It is the perfect solution when trying to tune your instrument in a noisy environment as it picks up the vibrations from the guitar rather than the sound transmitted in the air. With the attached 8' cable you can connect it to your electronic tuner or amplifier. This accessory also works with other similar string instruments such as a cello or violin.

    The description says it clips "on to the hole of your acoustic guitar." The size of the clip makes this work better on the headstock (and really the only way to use it for a ukulele, or smaller instruments. I use it for an Irish Bouzouki), and it's less likely to squawk. The bass is weak but some experimentation with placement can help with this.

    PROS: Inexpensive, works as well as something 2-3x the price.

    CONS: None

    Best $3.00 Christmas Gift ever



    Bought this for my 9 year old son to clip on his violin. He wanted an electric violin for XMas but he needs more time playing before we sink that kind of $$ into his music career. Plugged it into my other son's amp and the electric craving is satisfied. Might get the 20.00 amp on Monoprice just for him to play with but this is an amazing little device for anyone who tinkers with music.

    PROS:
    Cheap and good

    CONS:

    I didn't find this sooner.

    bought one then 10 days later bought 4 more.
    it's a pickup, not a microphone so it doesn't pick up wind noise or ambient sound like you do with a clip on condenser mic. It is made in China, (as most are in this $ range) but I like the variety of shipping options from Monoprice since it ships from the USA. Could not find any other pickups under 30 bucks out there that didn't take 3-6 weeks to get to me from China. I needed it and got it in 2 days. I bought this for an F-5 scroll style Mandolin. It is a very sensitive pickup, but once you find where your "sweet spot" is on placement , it's just right! It picks up palm muted picking without over modulating open chord strumming. When mounting, the lower the better. keep in mind if you bump into the wire, it will pick it up.You don't want a lot of cord slapping against the side of your instrument. Play around with placement and think positive thoughts. Mine works best with the pickup part inserted inside and the clip part on the outside of the mandolin. I used the center opening of the f-hole just below the pick guard. The wire is not that long, but fine for me as I sit and play while plugged into my guitar pedal board right in front of me. May be a little short for a more mobile player and need a 1/4in extension. But for the money, what have you got to lose? . I wish I had purchased more than one the first time. I've purchased 4 more since then just because you never know when you might have an opportunity to bless someone with one.

    PROS: small, simple sensitive, inexpensive,

    CONS: none that are not manageable for me personally.

    Great product
    This is a great easy to use tuner/pickup!



    I have used it both as a contact mic and a tuner mic. I ordered about 5 of these and 1 or 2 had a little bad wire with a grounding hum when I used it as a mic. The support was great and I got it replaced with no out of pocket charge. Highly recommended!

    PROS: Easy to use

    CONS: none

    Awesome, Cheap, Needed!
    Its Small compacted and does its job. Its that simple...

    PROS: This is an Awesome Clip on Pickup, for Your Acoustic Guitar, or any Instrument you need to Amp. It even works placing it on the Headstock of the Guitar instead of in the soundhole . It works and sounds great. Buy this one, You can't go wrong.

    CONS: None other that I didn't find this sooner!

    What you'd expect
    Its what you can expect for 3 bucks. I got it just to try really, put it in the sound hole of my Taylor 814ce just to try and got nothing, but on the advice of another review tried the headstock oddly enough and it worked. Mainly gonna use it for the banjo. Worth picking up a couple just to have around

    PROS: Price

    CONS: Volume

    Great for tuning band instruments too!
    These work well with any tuner that has a 1/4" jack like the Korg CA-1 or CA-30. I use it to tune all my brass and woodwind students during football games and the mic will only pick up the vibrations of the instrument and not the noise of the loud football game. It's even big enough to fit on a flute.



    A great deal when you consider the similar product from Korg is $25.



    Now Monoprice needs to come out with their own chromatic tuner like the CA-1 so I'm not spending $30+ each on those.

    PROS: Price, size, length of cord.

    CONS: none

    PROS: Very useful as it clips on like a tuner and can be moved around to different locations on your guitar to create different dynamics. Much smoother sound than I expected from anything piezo!

    Works well for cello
    I added this to an order on a whim, since for $3 there's not much to lose. I tried it on my cello and it works very well all things considered. I attached it to the bridge and found that the best place had it grabbing the middle of the bridge from between the legs. Even so, the sound was excessively bassy, but can be EQed to reasonable levels. I tried it with and without a buffer and the difference was not huge, but the buffer did improve the sound.



    If this was more expensive, I would consider it a decent pickup (maybe 7 or 8 out of 10). At $3, there is no excuse not to have one on hand. Next time I place a Monoprice order, I'm going to get a couple more, just to have extras in case this one breaks (the cable seems a little flimsy) or for amplifying random instruments in my worship band at church.

    PROS: Really good sound for the price, attaches firmly

    CONS: Frequency response is far from flat

    5/5
    I didn't know what to expect out of this thing, but for under $4 I figured I could just throw it out if it didn't work. I bought it specifically for a mandolin. I had been using a lapel-type microphone on a stand with phantom power to play through a church sound system. That mic was so sensitive that it picked up all other stage noise. This mic works entirely on instrument vibrations, so there is no other noise picked up at all. The sound guy said it worked great. I'm sure the sound isn't maybe as true as an expensive mic, but I don't really care that much for what I do. I messed with it quite a bit, since there weren't any instructions about where to put it. It turned out that by far the best place for a small instrument is on the headstock. And even there some places worked better than others for getting a truer sound. I will say that it is VERY sensitive. Hitting the wire, and especially the mic itself, will cause a large pop. Even a loud tap of the neck or a loud slide on the neck will be picked up.



    I tried it a little on my acoustic guitar. Probably because of the length of the neck, it didn't amplify nearly as well as the mandolin. But I suppose it could be used in the tonehole as long as you don't hit the mic while strumming.

    PROS: Price, ease of use.

    CONS: None yet. Cable could be longer. But I use a direct box so with the d.b. by my feet the length was fine, even standing up. I just couldn't wander very far.
