Would like to use my Boss TU3 tuner for acoustic

I just got a 1968 Martin D21. This is my first acoustic guitar. I would like to be able to use my Boss TU3 to keep it in tune. I have the TU3 because I'm mainly an electric player.

I have no intention of playing the D21 amplified so I was wondering if there is a standard interface/contact mike(?) set up that people use to use the Boss tuner on an acoustic?

Thanks

might as well get a snark
or an acoustic pickup - which you already said you don't want
i love the tu3
i use it with my martins, but they all have pickups
i also use the snark sn8 all of the time with them

Yes there are contact mics made to facilitate tuning with a standard electric tuner. Peterson makes a clamp, the TP-3, and a suction cup, the SF-20. Both have a 1/4 jack that will plug into your tuner. I have both from back in the day before clip ons. My suction cup model is not a Peterson though. I don't remember who made it and it is in the bottom of the guitar junk box. The suction cup seemed to work better than the clip on. I used to stick it on the pick guard to tune up.

A Snark is cheaper than either but may not last nearly as long. I've had that suction cup thing since the 80s and it still works fine...or at least did.
