I've used this mic for years on sax, clarinet (doesn't clip to bell; I made a simple adaptor to clip it to), acoustic guitar and mandolin. Very little feedback issues. I also bought a straight-line connection from Shure, and I simply screw the capsule into that, then strap it to my wrist: NO NEED to clip & unclip when switching instruments. For any but the loudest gigs, it picks up all the above instruments plus flute. Ideally, you'd tweak the EQ for different instruments, but on a typical gig I don't even bother. Very practical mic!
