Offers both tuner and metronome functions simultaneously or independently. Its large LCD-type needle delivers both the accuracy of an LCD and the excellent visibility of a needle indicator. It also has LED indicators that show pitch deviation or blink to indicate the tempo, making the TM-40 a highly visual tool. Provides quick and accurate coverage of a wide spectrum of notes and pitches for wind, string, keyboard, and most other instruments Excellent Functionality and a Wide Detection Range With a detection range of C1 (32.70 Hz) - C8 (4186.01 Hz), the TM-40 provides quick and accurate coverage of a wide spectrum of notes and pitches for wind, string, keyboard and most other instruments. Even low-pitched instruments with complex overtone structures are detected with the precision you expect from Korg. A built-in high-sensitivity mic allows acoustic instruments such as guitar and ukulele to be tuned easily and accurately, and the separately sold CM-100 contact mic can be used to send the vibrations directly to the tuner for even greater precision. Sound Out! In addition to the visual tuning guide provided by the meter, you can use the TM-40_s built-in speaker to produce a tuning reference pitch (Sound Out).

Metronome is loud enough to hear while I'm playing my acoustic guitar. Plays a "big" beat at the beginning of each measure. You can adjust to up to 9 beats per measure as well as have it play doublets, triplets, 1st and 3rd only triplets. Tempo is adjusted either by the single bpm or you can set it to standard metronome which runs by 2's,and 4's. It also has a "tap" tempo button.
I really enjoy using this! It's a great tool to have and seems to be more accurate than the "needle" tuner I used to use. Worth the money in my opinion.
There are two excellent features to this small convenience, this "digital tuner": most important for me and for anyone who plays instruments at A415 and A466 more often than at A440 is that the pitch can be "calibrated" up or down sufficiently to handle quarter-comma mean-tone at A446 or sixth-comma mean-tone at A415. The second excellence is that the battery power is very long-lasting; a 'pocket' or instrument-case tuner needs to have long battery life.
Amateurs will find this tuner quite adequate for settling the inevitable disputes about who's in or out of tune. Music teachers will find it useful because it's modest enough in price to insist that students get one if they need one. I use mine chiefly to wage preemptive warfare against villainous double-reeds. I've knocked it off my stand several times, by the way, as you will also, and it seems remarkably shock-proof.
The only complaint I have, is I wish you could tell it which string you want to tune, instead of only having it tell you what note is being played.
The metronome is also very good. It has more features than I knew a metronome could have, but I know nothing about metronomes. I love the feature where you tap the button twice and it automagicaly metronomes at the rate you hit the button. They should use this same technology in windshield wiper blades. I have wished this for a long time, even before I got this tuner. Just saying. The thing beeps instead of clicks. If you really want clicks, don't get this. Its NBD for me.
Both parts can be used at the same time. Never used both at the same time, but it's good to know.
The buttons and features of this thing are not completely obvious. Just read the page it gives you. As us nerds say, RTFM.

If you would prefer to see the music note as written on the score you might be better off getting the cleartune app (less than £3) for your i-phone or android phone where you can transpose the display to line up with transposed music scores. I have neither phone type, which is why I bought the stand-alone tuning device.
You might think that giving three stars is a bit mean, but Korg could very easily have included this to make it convenient for transposing instrument scores, like brass and wind-band music.
It also lost one star because the displayed letter is a bit too small for use in a group (the cleartune app has a large letter).
Metronome seems good but might be a bit quiet for some situations.
Tuner works via an in built microphone or via the socket on the side if you wish to plug a guitar or other cabled instrument in and it is chromatic to handle other tunings you might want to use. You can use either the tuner or metronome separately or both at the same time but I've been mainly using the tuner. The LCD screen is clear but cannot be back lit but it's easy to use and has flashing lights at the top for the metronome and tuning which allow it to be used in darker situations where seeing the screen may be difficult.
The metronome I've used less but has plenty settings for different tempos and rhythms and it has a tap function letting you tap in a tempo which it will then recognise. It also has a volume control and headphone socket.
I'm happy with it, and it seems a good item for the price.
There really isn't much to add here, the tuner is fast and accurate both in direct input and mic modes, although I'll probably only use this one with direct input since I use a clip-on tuner with my acoustic guitars.
The metronome on the other hand is incredibly useful as an acoustic aid and I'm sure will prove to be invaluable. Very easy to set and use and my playing is already benefiting from being more disciplined.
As I said in the title - this Korg Tuner & Metronome is an excellent piece of kit.
