Matrix Pickups
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.

Comments about Matrix MPU-1 Chromatic Tuner Pickup:

I got this for the same reason as the guy below me. Let me start by saying it's great for getting things tuned, and it won't disappoint.Okay, so far I've used this on some percussion and on an accordion. The recording quality is actually quite nice. I've hooked drums up to my guitar pedalboard and still been able to recognize all the sounds when they came out of the amp. Haha! You can of course trigger with it too, but I don't know if it would stand up.The cable's short and pretty microphonic. You'll want to be careful with your gain/volume. It's about the same as a JT-30's cable for noise - hardly there unless you go bumping it around.Overall, great investment.

Comments about Matrix MPU-1 Chromatic Tuner Pickup:

i actually bought this little tuner pickup at a local music store thinking i could plug it in to an amp to get some sweet lo-fi, low quality sounds like a cool effect. and it actually ended up playing extremely well except for a little bit of feed back if you stand to close to your amp if it is loud enough, i actually used it taped onto my guitar for a show two nights ago and it performed spectacularly.
