I found this very neat app/website called Geek and they sell lot’s of stuff for prices you won’t believe. Much of what they offer is a real steal. But what can you expect for the prices they ask? 

I decided to give it a try and ordered some small items. Including this “Acoustic Piezo Contact Microphone Pickup for Guitar Violin Mandolin Ukulele” as it is described.

In this video you can hear how it sounds.

The microphone-pickup was placed as close to the bridge as possible. Since that’s the best spot for a piezo pickup. It hardly picks up low end though, even though I placed it there. Perhaps if I place it inside it might slightly improve but I don’t think so.

Of course, after seeing the video, it’s up to you if you want to spend one or two euro’s on it. I don’t think it’s worth it. If you want to use it for playing on stage or a studio recording, I recommend higher end pickups. Don’t buy this.

Stereo image
The Piezo Element does what it has to do and sounds as you can expect for a cheap piezo. Combined with another mic you can use it however to get a nice stereo image.

However, again, I would not recommend it for professional use, on stage or at the studio. I will probably end up taking it apart and use it for a cigar box project or use it as an additional mic for creating fuller stereo images.
