OVERVIEW

A sensitive piezoelectric pickup to better hear the tuning of stringed, woodwind, and brasswind instruments.

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.


Give your acoustic instrument a better signal into your tuner when you order today.

    Comments about Peterson TP-3 Clip-On Tuner Pickup:

    This is the second clip on tuner pickup I've purchased and replaces the last one I had that I broke through heavy uses and traveling in gig bags. I play all the saxes and flute and this item is invaluable in being able to tune when there is ambient noise that might compete with the instrument sound when trying to tune with only the built in tuner mic. This is a great device and this second one is even better made than the first, which was very high quality.

    Find An Old TP-2 Before They're Gone

          Comments about Peterson TP-3 Clip-On Tuner Pickup:

          Simply put, it does not work nearly as well as the old TP-2. I have an older Peterson Stroboflip I use on my bench for guitar repair and wanted a second pickup sensor. I ordered this one from Musicians Friend, tried it and it would not pick up the 1st (high E) or 2nd (B string), at all. I called Peterson and they immediately sent me a new one. Unfortunately, the same problem exists. Though the item literature claims it is more sensitive than the TP-2, this statement is false. I immediately searched the internet and found a dealer that has the old TP-2 and bought two...

            Comments about Peterson TP-3 Clip-On Tuner Pickup:

            I play French Horn for the local Wind Symphony and some local churches. I love this device as it lets me plug directly into my tuner (which only hears my French Horn). I use it to practice and for performances. When I hear something out of tune, I glance at my tuner to ensure that it is not me. I can play with more confidence.

            Did not extend low range of Korg CA-30 tuner with BBb tuba

            Comments about Peterson TP-3 Clip-On Tuner Pickup:

            I purchased the Peterson TP-3 clip-on pickup for my BBb tuba hoping that it would help to extend the accurate range of my Korg CA-30 tuner to the lower registers of the tuba. I had noticed that the tuner was not accurate in the lowest octave. As far as I can tell, there was no difference in the tuner's performance with or without the clip. The tuner works fine at higher frequencies, and I installed a new battery in the tuner to make sure that was not the problem. I believe the problem is NOT the clip, but that the tuner is not able to analyze lower frequencies. The clip works fine in the higher octaves, but did not extend the tuner range in the lower octaves as I hoped it might.
