I had never used a clip on tuner until I bought this one. I found it's helpful for me to use this to tune during a noisy rehearsal. I chose it because it was the cheapest one. I've had it a few months and it works fine for me. I plug it directly into my Korg TM-50.

I have purchased a lot of these (probably close to 50) to use in a middle school orchestra classroom. They do work really nicely with our Korg tuners, but the cord frays very easily and they generally do not last the entire school year. I have only 15-20 that are still working. I think I'm going to try reinforcing them with electrical tape to see if that helps the lifespan because they do work very well for all string instruments and are definitely reasonably priced.

I bought a class set of these and at least 2 of them did not work after one use. I have taught my students to loosely wrap them around the tuner and put the clip on the tuner so that the cord doesn't bend at all. The tuners and cords are kept in a shoe hanger at the front of my classroom. Even with all of these precautions, I have had multiple cords stop working. I will need to replace these but will not be buying the same brand, these are awful!!

I use these in a middle school orchestra classroom. They work great - until they break. They are on the fragile side. I replace them frequently. I count them as a kind of ongoing expense, but ultimately worth it.

I play in a small orchestra and this tuner helps me tune my violin while others are warming up or talking. I had no trouble attaching it to the bridge of my violin. The cord is long, but that too is an advantage if your tuner is sitting on the music stand and you are standing behind your chair. I think this is very helpful especially for the price.

The cord is way too long, the part that clips on to the bridge is not flat but rigid and you have to press hard. There is also quite a delay in all of the clips when I hook them up to Korg tuners. I ordered 6-8 of these and the kids dont want to use them because of the lack of response. As an orchestra and high school orchestra teacher every minute counts especially when you have as much as 75 kids in one room. I would recommend the Martrix Tuner Pick up instead.

This mike did not work for a violin. The clamp isn't flat on both surfaces and does not make good contact. It pick up other sounds and made it impossible to conduct any tuning with it. I purchase a new Korg tuner at the same time. I had to use my old mike. I do not recommend purchasing this mike. I would have returned it but the cost of shipping did not make sense

As a middle school orchestra director, I teach my students to tune themselves using these microphones. It saves a lot of class time. Unfortunately, after less than a year of frequent use, the connections between the clip and the wire began to disconnect in all five of my microphones. They are great for the average player but aren't made for heavy use.

This is a great little tool for anyone who plays in an orchestra. I'm one of those that do not have perfect pitch and therefore relies on an electronic turner to tune my instrument. But trying to tune in an orchestra setting is a bit of a challenge when everyone is also tuning thier instrument. For the price and accuracy, this is a must have.
