Product Details

Peterson TP-3 Clip-On Tuner Pickup

The Peterson TP-3 Clip-On Tuning Pickup includes a more sensitive piezoelectric pickup than any of Peterson's previous models in order to improve the signal transmission of your acoustic instrument into your tuner. The tuner pickup's larger opening can now accommodate even the most challenging placement. Higher gripping tension ensures that the TP-3 stays in place without damaging your instrument. The TP-3 tuner pickup can be used with any instrument or tuner, plus you can totally isolate your instrument from any other sound in the room, allowing for confident tuning even in the noisiest environments.

Additional features of the Peterson TP-3 tuner pickup include: that it clips onto the lead pipe, barrel of a flute, or any round tubing on horns with no marring to the instrument and that its jaws feature padded ends to clip on the bell of the horn of brass instruments or various parts of a stringed instrument. The Peterson TP-3 has a 1/4" input jack that is compatible with many instrument tuners and it has a long, heavy-duty cord with strain relief for added durability and longer life. The TP-3 tuner pickup is an ideal accessory when used together with original Peterson tuning hardware. No batteries required.

Great for the Price

By Rusty/Robin Ahmadi from Allen, TX on 3/18/2011 4:04:16 PM

Now this is by far not the best of pickups, but for the price, you will not find better. This is great to hook up to a tuner, but it also works very well with amplifiers and computer recordings. I have found that this pickup works perfectly with violas, violins and cello recordings/amplifications and does almost exactly as well with guitars as sound hole pickups. With ukuleles, this pickup tends to pick up the high high-end notes a bit too much, but it still sounds alright. Honestly, I'd rather use this than on-board pickups. (Note: This product's spring does become weak every few years and may need replacing. This does not affect the sound output.)
