I have sold hundreds of these they are very popular, here are some quotes from customers:

"Mic arrived day after purchase - brilliant product I'll def be buying more!"

"Great time saving kit"

"Well made product, quick delivery"

Ideal for experimentation or as an economical instrument / object pickup. Useful for :- Acoustic guitar pickup on stage, a pickup in an oilcan/cigar box guitar, in a stompbox, to trigger electronic drums, in an art project etc . .

Use and ways of attachment

The way the pickup works is by contact with vibrating surfaces, it must then be plugged into an amplifier, the easiest way to use this is to plug it into a guitar amp or mixers microphone input with a 1/4" jack

the pickup itself is bare minimum, there are no sucker pads. This is intentional to allow maximum flexibility, below are methods you can employ to connect the piezo to a surface with pro's and cons.

Attachment Method Pro's Con's
Blue tack temporary easily re-positionable. may fall off, overtime the pickup will probably break
Gaffa tape - quick and strong may not cause proper contact
double sided tape decent contact. will mark target object
double sided sticky pad quick and strong will mark object, May dampen contact
Epoxy glue Good contact , Strong and permanent not removable
Multi purpose glue Good contact Not very strong


There is a small pad of epoxy on the back of the piezo and tie on the cable to prevent damage by strain. Besides these measures it is still possible to damage the piezo by rough handling. Take care around the solder joints on the back of the piezo especially when removing tape.
