The Clip Microphone for Bagpipes is specially designed to conform to the curvature of the Drones and Chanter. It's innovative shape adjusts to the circumference of the pipes and features a highly sensitive piezo sensor, 1.75m lead, 1/4" male plug and strong clip mechanism with two rubber pads. Being properly cushioned the clip microphone will not damage the wood finish on your pipes. The HBTM Clip Microphone is also compatible with third party tuners such as the CA30. The plug is not compatible with the HBT3 tuner. The curvature design restricts interference from other instruments and allows precision detection. It is quick to attach and remove, ideal for fine tuning notes on the chanter even while playing with other pipers and drone tuning is fast once the detection 'sweet spot' is established. It's easy to tune quickly by yourself in the noisiest of environments. A pickup like the HBTM Clip Microphone is more accurate for transmitting sound into the tuner than a built-in mic. While some sound sources require the mic it is also more likely to pick up background noise causing interference with the sound from the instrument. The HBTM solves this. The HBTM Clip Microphone is ideal for pipers at home, easy to use and is the only precision microphone for Bagpipes with a highly sensitive piezo sensor.
