    Comments about Peterson PitchGrabber Mobile Tuner Pickup:

    It's plug & play and works great with the free GuitarTuna app on my iPhone SE, but not so well with the free Boss tuner app. GuitarTuna was very smooth in regular mode while the Boss tuner did a lot of jumping around as the string settled. GuitarTuna's Pro mode jumped around a bit too, but settled in nicely.
    I'll use regular mode for gigs and try Pro mode for intonation. The cable is very durable. It's long enough that I can slip it thru the amp handle as a sort of strain relief and keep it connected to my iPhone. When not in use, I just clip it to the amp handle and let the cable slack hang behind the amp.

          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.
