the tuner does NOT work. Now I have to find a 3V 2032 battery in the very small town where I live or return the tuner or order one by mail ($$$)
The manufacturer is in China and there is no phone # to call.
Even for $7, I expected a functioning tuner. Buy at your own risk on this one
The only thing I don't like about this is the limited movement of it. I have it clipped to the headstock of my guitar and pointed behind it, so I can see it when I look to my left. When in that orientation, the display is sideways and you simply cannot change it to be right side up. It doesn't take too long to get used to a sideways display, it definitely hasn't hurt my ability to tune. It's just a little awkward. Other than that, this is a good product!
I haven't tried this out on a banjo or a 12-string yet. The tuner did struggle a bit with the 5 string bass and during live playing it didn't seem to have any issues. The pitch of the tuner is pretty accurate to my Korg Pitch Black Pro! You can do 1/2 step and open tuning.
The life of the battery is a bit of a concern but so far so good. The compartment to the battery does take a precision Philips head driver which could be an issue for some.
Overall I'm impressed and is another tool to use to keep your instrument in tune. Can it replace your stompbox? That comes down to your personal preference. I cut my volume knob and tune from the FT-004, so tuning in silent is possible. This was mainly for my acoustics, and soon has found it's way into my electrics.
Without any other tuner to compare it to, I'm quite impressed. I love the little flat/sharp screen flip thingy. The needle briefly flips either sharp or flat before it hits the green 'in tune' state it give a heads-up. That's a nice touch.
I don't need this device to give me a frequency readout since my relative pitch is good enough to get precise on my own but man, having this to get me close is amazing. Hope to give this tuner a run for the money.
Seems to work very well. I checked it against another tuner built in to my amp as well as a reference tone and it was pretty much spot-on. While I don't plan on learning either the cello or ukulele any time soon, it's nice to know this will keep them in tune in such an eventuality.
There is a simple instruction sheet that comes in the box that is enough to get you up and running with it in short order. I simply clipped it to the headstock of my guitar and it "magically" picked up the resonance of the strings through the instrument and provided a full color display. The "analog" like meter makes it easy to see whether you are sharp or flat, and a green line appears in the very center when you're right on target. It will also display which note you're playing, making it handy if you want to try an alternate tuning for the instrument.
I like that it's compact, lightweight, and thus far seems pretty accurate. If I did have one thing to put on my wish list, it would have been for a somewhat better method of turning the device around. It will pivot 360 degrees in the lateral plane, but is a bit more limited moving it up or down. This makes for some odd viewing angles, and while it's still easy to see I would have preferred a ball joint that would have allowed it more flexibility in getting a decent viewing angle. For this reason, I deducted one star. It's otherwise a solid little device and I'd heartily recommend it.
