The Intelli IMT-500 clip on chromatic tuner is designed to tune electric and acoustic guitars, basses, violins, banjos, mandolins and more without interference from ambient room noise, all without the use of wires, microphones or pickups. Tuning in noisy environments is a easy because the unique, flexible clamp actually "feels" the instrument's vibrational energy instead of relying on sound. And, the swivel allows a perfect view of the back lit display. The best part is that this amazing quality tuner costs a fraction of what other similar tuners cost.

Anyway, this is not a bad tuner for the price. The display is bright, actually too bright with a new battery. All As far as I know, the brightness is not adjustable. My other complaint is that the display doesn't sit vertically on its mount. It's up about 15deg. So, on most instruments, it means that the display is angles away from you, still visible, readable and sharp, but annoying. As another reviewer mentioned, some do rattle. The solution is simple so I won't go into that here. I use the IMT500® mostly on the mandolin, guitar and banjo. It is slow on the E string of the guitar but acceptable. I tried to use it on the upright bass but it wasn't reliable. Actually, I had trouble getting any clip-on to work on the upright bass. After testing all the clip-ons, I finally found one Snark® when after removing the rubber bottom bumper, work perfectly--fast and accurate on all strings. That's another story.
From my use (guitar, mandolin, banjo), I have found the IMT500® to work well on all. As I indicated above, I own, have owned many clip-ons. They all, without exception, have some issues. Some I purchased were three times the cost of the IMT500® tuner but performed no better.
So, in conclusion, my opinion, it's a good buy, for the price! Bright, accurate and will work well for you.
I went on line to find the address of the maker of this tuner and there are tons of people with the same battery eating problem and nobody seems to be able to find the address of the manufacturer. It is not on the packaging or instruction sheet. That alone tells you something. This is a cheap tuner and you get what you pay for. The intellitouch (notice the "Intelli" tried to infringe on the name
is a much better tuner and of course it costs more. The upside is that you don't run out of batteries constantly and get mad about it.
For my fiddle, mandolin and guitar, I'll use my just received Intelli IMT-500 which is very compact (great for fiddle/mando cases), which has an outstanding backlight, superb accuracy and quick resetting.
The Intelli, in its own manufacturers box (which has no shock-absorbing material),was placed in a larger shipping box by the distributor/seller "The Instrument Store", without any shock-absorbing material, leaving the Intelli, a very sensitive electronic metering device,
subject to vibration and shock during the long trip down the east coast.
It would be good for Amazon to teach sellers the basics of proper packing for shipping.It's not rocket science.
