    Comments about Peterson PitchGrabber Mobile Tuner Pickup:

    First off: this product is intended for use with a smart device (iPhone, Android, etc.) and a tuning app (Peterson offers a fairly sophisticated, paid, strobe app, but I'm fond of the free Boss app), and won't work with normal 1/4" phono plug tuners. That said, how well does it work? Using it with my mandolin, clipped to the headstock, it does seem to offer a better SNR than resting my headphone mic inside the body cavity, and far better SNR than using my iPhone built in mic. The price is reasonable, the construction is café road worthy (wouldn't want it for a primary on a major tour, but great for a backup, practice, and casual gigs), and It's small enough to fit in most instrument cases/gig bags, and you'll probably have your smart phone with you anyway. The shape is supposed to work well with brass and woodwinds, but I can't vouch for that--though I suspect it would probably work better clipped to the bell of a sax than the headstock of my mandolin. Overall, pretty good, though not quite as portable and not quite the magic bullet I'd hoped for.
