So Nearly Perfect
Rick Otley, 21.05.2021
An excellent solution to faithful instrument amplification.

No specs are available from Myers, or from any other source that I could find. Which means a leap of faith, when forking out the slightly elevated price.

My application is violin and in this regard, Myers have "dropped the ball". The bottom of the Carpenter Clamp has no Cork on it. What idiot expects you to clamp chrome steel against a violin back (or mandolin).
Also the Cork and Felt pads are not thick enough to allow for the elevation of the violin top. So that when you clamp the PreAmp/Mic module to the top surface of the violin the base is resting on the Violin sound board. But hey, I can elevate it enough with neoprene tubing or rubber feet. That is not the point though; For this price point and the advertised (violin) application, I would expect everything necessary for the average joe, would be included.

In Summary, a good product, with excellent sound capture characteristics. Output is acceptable, but a preamp for Hi-z amp input is recommended. So whilst the Myers family sell the Clamp product as the finished article, they still have some very important work to do with regard to the Carpenter Clamp arrangement for a clean fit to a valuable violin (or Mandolin).

Many thanks to Thomann, who as always, excel in the quality of service they continue to provide.

By far the best out there

I experimented with many violin pickups untill I bumped into the Myers Pickup. Not only is it small and practical, the sound is crystal clear and very natural. It is very user friendly and the goose neck can be adjusted to your own sweet spot. Violinists go out and get it.....

Austen , 22.01.2020
Recently bought a Fylde mandolin - a larger than usual model by UK luthier Roger Bucknall. It has a rich sustain that is difficult to capture with traditional contact pickups. The Myers “grip” mandolin mike faithfully transmits the resonance from right in front of the sound hole without any need for any intrusive ‘surgery’ to the instrument.

Violinenpick-up
AirportConfusion1959, 19.10.2020
Ich habe mir diesen Pick-up für meine ca.110 Jahre alte Geige bestellt. Spiele die über Marshall AS-50. Super sound. Den Pick-up dann an meine 60 Jahre alte Hardanger Violine probiert. Wahnsinn. Habe Obertöne hören können die ich früher nicht wahrnahm. Lege mir doch noch einen 2ten Pick-up zu. Hoch empfehlenswert. Preis/Qualität stimmt auf jeden Fall
