The tuner pickup is designed specifically for orchestra and band instrument. 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. A pickup is better in transmitting sound into the tuner than a built-in mic that always comes with a tuner. This is because a mic is more likely to pick up background noise that causes interference with the sound from the instrument.
