How is this attached and plugged into an amp?
The pickup itself attaches via a magnetic disc, which is attached to the underside of the playing surface. The pickup leads to a 1/4" jack that can plug into an amp. It's a pretty quick and easy setup!
Do I need to purchase a chord to go with this so Incan plug it into my amp or does it come with a chord?? Thanks :)
It will work with any 1/4" guitar cable so if you already have one, you won't need to buy another!
I like the product, price and practicality. After all the pictures I still don’t understand how it will stick to my ukulele. Where and how is magnet installed under the bridge or similar area. Or it does the distance does not matter ..... but would not the head “ travel”, move, toward the magnetic source...? I know this may be dumb, but I’ll take the chance....
The magnet that is installed under the bridge is stuck there with a piece of poster putty; it won't slide around but will stay wherever you put it! The magnetic attraction will work through the soundboard of the uke and the pickup will "cling". I hope that makes sense!
How is this being held on the drum? I am a Blue Washboard player...and am looking at this mike for use with my many Washboards...so can it be taken off and used with other drums (Washboards) or is it stuck to what instrument only?
This pickup is attached via a small magnetic disc, which is applied to the underside of the playing surface. The magnetic attraction pulls the pickup to the magnet and holds it in place. It is a contact mic so it will pick up all the vibrations from the washboard, too. I haven't tried it with a washboard but I think it would work well.
what is the best amplifier for the Cling On Acoustic Pickup in your opinion....?
I think you'll want a small to medium size amp or monitor. These contact pickups can perform will with light amplification, but they are going to feedback as soon as that playing surface begins to resonate from the amplified sound waves. I wouldn't recommend using this pickup if you need to amplify percussion for a very loud performance, but do recommend for a small intimate performance like a club, lounge, small to medium size church, etc.
