The included sticky-back velcro strip that holds the jack does an okay job of it. After plugging in an instrument cable I had to add a band of velcro tie wraps (Velcro Reusable Self-Gripping Ties, 0.5 Inches x 8 Inches, Black/Gray, 50 Ties per Pack (90924) $3.38) to support the cable. For other instruments, you may wish to think about how you intend to support the jack and cable prior to purchasing this. I certainly wouldn't use the sticky-back stuff for supporting the jack on an expensive instrument. And while we're on the subject I wouldn't use the stick-on pickup on the finish of an expensive instrument. For cheap instruments it's a nice choice.
Off-topic: I keep wondering why Amazon wants to "label this review" so customers know I purchased the item at Amazon. Does that affect anybody's buying decision or the credibility of the review? After all, whether I check that button or not I'm still just some stranger who typed some opinion on a product. My motivation should be inherently suspect. I could be a well-meaning samaritan or I could be a shill, no matter whether the box is checked or not. <shrug> (And FWIW, I'll say for the record that I am not a shill. I simply provided the information I would have liked to know when shopping for this guiro, paying it forward for all those who have ostensibly done the same in reviewing other products.)
Past angst aside, so far, I have used this pickup attached by blue painter's tape on the head INSIDE a banjo and on the top (OUTSIDE) of a mandolin. The sound this pickup produces is sensitive and clear. It responds like a microphone, and it does not need a preamp or phantom power to boost it. Just plug it in with a typical guitar 1/4 inch cable and go direct to the amp or board. I have used the pickup onstage through several different amps and PA's. It is always good once you get the sound guy to adjust the mid and bass levels.
The build of the pickup is okay, maybe not "high quality," but the sound definitely is "high quality." The butterfly paper clip pictured literally ships with the pickup as some sort of wire tie, I guess, because there are no real instructions in English, only Chinese. (I thought the clip was pictured to show size, but it has some other esoteric function.) I did not use the Velcro tape. I prefer to attach the jack using blue painter's tape so I can remove it, but a well-place wire tie, at least on a banjo, could work too.
This is an external pickup. No hole has to be drilled in your instrument. The pickup is not built in anyway to be mounted like that. The jack is sealed in plastic. The main issue is how you plan to stably mount the pickup. Whichever way you choose, you will not be disappointed with the sound.
