    It appears to be back to front for what I need but I could be wrong.

    I'll wait for the 6.5 to 3.5 adapter and plug it directly into the audio before I go down the preamp path.
    Sorry, I read your original post and thought you were looking for a pre-amp with no soldering. And yes, it appears that is a 2.5mm piezo input, then pre-amp and eq, then out the 6.5mm jack where you would need a patch cord to reach your sound-card.

    Yes, I would certainly try your adapter plugged straight into the sound-card first. Many people have success with that setup, keep it as simple as necessary!

    Your original post also asked about good stands for positional checking. I think someone on the original tg thread used an inexpensive table top photography tripod and some double sided foam tape (or bluetack?). These have a universal joint / ball head that makes it easy to adjust the position of the watch. There are many available, and even the cheapest/lightest ones should hold a watch and piezo easily. I have a "Pedco UltraPod II Lightweight Camera Tripod" that is great even for a heavy camera with a macro lens and is available on amazon for <$20USD, but you can probably find cheaper ones that are also fine.

    I love this idea! I also dabble is music and home recording, so I already have the usb interface, but your mic idea never occurred to me. Where did you purchase it? What was the relative cost?
    Awesome idea!

    Hi mousekar75
    If you are talking about my setup I went to this special little pet store called fleaybay. I'm sure there is one in your area :)

    Here are the links for mine.
    6.3mm Jack to USB Guitar Link Cable Adapter to PC MAC Recording Playback | eBay $8
    and
    Piezo Clip On Microphone Pickup for Acoustic Guitar Violin Mandolin Ukulele | eBay $4.

    As long as you have a high-impedance input on your USB interface (preferably 1Megohm or greater) you should be able to plug in any piezo pickup. Here's one I bought on Amazon:

    Thank you for the response. I think I'll be good. Waiting on the pickup now!

    I'm just need to find some time to test out my setup. I forgot I had a Steinberg UR22 audio USB interface laying around, so I'm going to try that with the Amazon pickup and see how it works.

    Excellent! I'd be curious to know the results. I'll be using the Korg clip on piezo pickup with a Presonus audiobox. It sounds like it'll work. If not, I have a new pickup for my ukulele.....so I'm good either way!
