Cling On Pickup California-based Cling On has released its namesake pickup, which won the Best in Show honour at The 2018 NAMM Show in the Add On and Accessories category. The Cling On Pickup is a compact, passive piezo pickup with a patented magnetic attachment design. It does not require any modification to the instrument and attaches easily. The ability to install multiple magnetic bases in different areas of the soundboard allows the musician to move the pickup around the soundboard in search of a different tone and sound easily and on the fly. It comes with a detachable portable cable and a built-in volume control. Each pickup comes with a small and very light magnetic base that is attached underneath the soundboard on the inside of the guitar via tacky putty. It’s removable, reusable, and can be easily re-positioned. The constant pressure that the magnets create on the soundboard enables more direct, balanced, and accurate transfer of the vibrations from the soundboard to the pickup.
