I would not go out of my way to buy this again. Personally I've found that the Boss stomp box tuners are faster, easier to use and yield better results. Yes they cost more than these vibration sensing style tuners and you must be plugged in to use them but the accuracy is important to me in live situations. Too often, vibration tuners indicate I'm in tune but it's still a little off and requires a second round of tuning. My Boss stomp box tuner always gets it right the first time which is really important in a live performance situation.
Good music to all.
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.
This tuner clips onto the head of our guitars and swivels and tilts to make it easy to read while tuning. Response is pretty fast and very consistent. It tunes both the high and low E strings easily unlike some tuners which can't seem to hear the low E string very well.
Because it tunes using vibrations on the guitar, it ignores conversation, other players tuning, and even our dogs when they decide to get rowdy during our practice sessions.
We finally bought a second tuner so we wouldn't fight over who got to keep this tuner.
This tuner allows it to be put into various modes like Guitar, Bass, Violin and Ukulele. In the guitar mode, it displays the string number and note it expects. For example, it will display 6E for the #6 E string, then show the tone accuracy. The other instruments also show the string number and note, for example, 4G, 3D, 2A, 1E for a violin or 4G, 3C, 2E, 1A for an ukulele.
There seems to be a small, but definite, difference between tuning for a G with the tuner set to key of C and 2G in guitar mode. It isn't much, but for some reason, the guitar mode seems to want to tune to a slightly higher frequency than the Chromatic mode. Either seems accurate to me, but I'm not a professional musician and my guitar teacher doesn't seem to care which tuning I use in my lessons, so I use it in Chromatic mode all the time.
Tried this on an acoustic guitar and, like many others, it has a hard time "hearing" the low E string on my acoustic guitar. I have to strike the string firmly in order to get it to register. I may try the Snark series to see if they do any better on an acoustic.
