CBMPU1, Attaches to body with a suction cup
The suction cup design of this tuner pickup allow it to be used with any instrument that has a flat surface, like a guitar, bass, violin, etc. The suction cup is attached to the instrument and as the instrument is played, sound is then transmitted to the tuner. A pickup is better in transmitting sound into the tuner than a built-in mic that always comes with a tuner. This is because a mic is more likely to pick up background noise that causes interference with the sound from the instrument.CBMPU2, Attaches to body with a clip
The tuner pickup is designed specifically for orchestra and band instrument. For string instruments (violin, viola, and cello), the pickup can be clipped onto the bridge to pick up the sound of the instrument for tuning. For band instruments, the pickup can also be clipped onto the instrument to pick up sound. A pickup is better in transmitting sound into the tuner than a built-in mic that always comes with a tuner. This is because a mic is more likely to pick up background noise that causes interference with the sound from the instrument.

Great Mic

My teacher suggests placing a tuner on the stand with you during practices and rehearsals so you have a reference for where your pitch is. I find with bassoons it is hard to pick up just a bassoon sound, so I bought this pickup. It works like a charm. It picks up nearly every bassoon sound and ignores the trumpets behind me! :-) Now, if only my tuner could pick up the lowest register of the bassoon!

I picked one (the clip-on version) up along with a new tuner, and it does everything it needs to. It also speeds up the response of the tuner quite a bit!

Best thing I bought for my Acoustic guitars and you know how hard it is to tune a 12 string this makes it more easier. Buy it, you can't go wrong.
