    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.

    You can't go wrong with this pickup

    Pros: Easy to install
    Decent sound quality

    Cons: Clip is too large and can be tricky to mount without touching the strings
    No built in pre amp

    I've purchased this pickup for my son's classic guitar. He had a performance and needed amplification.
    A professional pick up cost upward of $200 and require installation.
    This pickup works as advertised, very easy to clip and provide decent quality.

    Pros: Great quality, sound and price.

    Cons: Nothing

    Everything arrived on time, the pricing was great and the best part is the clarity in sound of the guitar pickup. Future plans will be to order many more. Thank you so much, Mr. Ham

    Best $3.00 Christmas Gift ever

    Cheap and good


    I didn't find this sooner.

    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.

    Works well for cello

    Pros: Really good sound for the price, attaches firmly

    Cons: Frequency response is far from flat

    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.

    bought one then 10 days later bought 4 more.

    Pros: small, simple sensitive, inexpensive,

    Cons: none that are not manageable for me personally.

    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.
