The MPU-2 is designed specifically for orchestra and band instruments. For string instruments (violin, viola, and cello), the pickup can be clipped onto the bridge to pick up the sound of the instrument for tuning. For band instruments, the pickup can also be clipped onto the instrument to pick up sound.

This is a more reliable way of tuning these types of instruments because of the clip on mic. "Open Air" tuners are more susceptible to ambient sound affecting their tuning reference, where these get only the sound you want.

    Comments about Matrix MPU2 Band and Orchestral Clip On Tuning Pickup:

    I have used this clip on pickup initially to tune my cello. I clip it onto my cello bridge and plug it into my chromatic tuner. This helps me to tune my instrument rather accurately.

    I discovered a little known use for this pickup today. It can be used to amplify a string instrument with the use of an amp. Let me explain. I clipped this pickup onto my cello bridge, then plugged it into my Ion Explorer Bluetooth Block Rocker. Voila, instant electric/acoustic cello.
