Shocked at the quality!
on May 18, 2015
I have owned many tuners over the last 20 years. I am not a fan of iPhone app tuners. My old tuner is really bulky and I wanted something easier to see.
I reluctantly ordered this tuner because I am accustomed to paying $80-100 for a decent tuner, and I believed there was no way this tiny little tuner could accomplish anything. Boy, was I wrong!
When it arrived, I was shocked at the quality of the soft touch plastic and the brightness and crispness of the screen. My old tuner used little LED lights and they are fine but it was a huge tuner which didn't attach to my instrument.
I adjusted the clip and mount, and that's when I noticed the switch to tune via Vibration or Mic. This is an incredibly important feature if you play in a band or in orchestra where there are many external sounds happening. I bought this tuner to play my harp at home but I still prefer tuning via Vibration.
As I began tuning my harp, I realized just how great this tuner is because the screen was so easy to see. At around 1" I didn't think it would be easy to see, but the layout is everything. The various colors also contribute to this excellent little workhorse.
I didn't know it had a visual metronome when I bought it, but that doesn't do me much good because I prefer a classic audible metronome. It comes with a little pouch.
Overall, I am completely impressed with this beauty. No more Korg tuner with the pickup mic. No more hauling around one more piece of equipment.
Bottom line: absolutely 5 stars for being an excellent tuner, killer price, easy to use, easy to carry, no learning curve.
