The display is easy to read, and the backlight works well. It's very helpful to use the "sound back" mode to listen for the note you are trying to achieve with wind instruments, without having to constantly stare at the tuner to see if you are flat or sharp. This helps brain train, as you'll begin to hear the notes in your head, and know what to aim for without having to check constantly later on.
The metronome has all of the basics, and works fine. You can use the metronome alone, the tuner alone, or both together.
The only weakness of this tuner lies in the display and battery life.
- There is a bit of "ghosting" on the display as the needle moves around, but it is only aesthetic, and does not alter readability.
- On all Korg tuners, the screen has a thin acrylic protector, which scratches easily. Using a microfiber cloth to clear away grease, will give you a lot of light scratches. It's not a huge issue, and doesn't really impact readability.
- The batteries last a good while, but this is an older model, and newer offerings by Korg get much longer run time (20-50%). They also have larger/more visible screens.
For the price, this is a good deal for beginners, as you get the contact mic, and a very functional tuner. The microphone works with other Korg tuners as it uses a standard connector. If you are learning brass/woodwinds, and you want to improve your volume/overtones, you can later step up to a more fully featured model when you're ready to develop those skills.
Tempo input is easy: tap a rubberized button or scroll up and down with the arrow keys. If you want to quickly jump from a slow tempo to fast, tapping it in is faster. For a fine adjustment, the arrow keys are best. All the buttons are easy to use and feel solid enough.
The monochrome LCD works okay but looks like tech from the early 1990s and is on the tiny side. The gentle orange light is a nice touch.
Metronome volume is perfect for practicing classical and acoustic guitar but may be too soft for wind instruments and piano (unless plugged into an amp). There’s a volume knob but most people will probably need to run it wide open.
One rub for me is the lack of alternative sounds. Even my plain and ancient Seiko metronome has a choice of a woody click or clave. The given beat timbre sounds like something out the 1980s Tron movie.
Finally, I tried the tuner and it was okay but not great: jumpy and often misread the open strings of my classical guitar. The included tuner mic or a direct connection to a guitar pickup improves tuner performance considerably. I have Polytune clip-on or built-in tuners on my guitars so no biggie but I wouldn’t buy the TM-50 for the tuner function. Basically this is good metronome and a so-so tuner.
I was satisfy with the item and it performed as expected and as advertise. I would
Recommend the item and would order it again. For the price you could not get a
Love it with the clip on mic. Clip it right on the bridge between the A and D strings.
For jazz, it can be used as a pick up too.
Love this thing.
