Works wonderfully but not for initial tuning
on 25 January 2015
Bought this as a first time ukulele buyer and It's not too bad. The idea is that you strum the string and it works out which string you're strumming and then gives you a pretty clear and easy to understand display showing you whether you need to be aiming higher or lower - it even shows the string number next to the pitch letter, which is handy.
Tip for other first-time ukulele players - go online and find a 'how to tune your uke' guide which will play you the notes you should be aiming for so that you can listen to them. I thought this tuner was rubbish initially because it wouldn't pick up any note that I played other than C. It turns out that this is because I had the other three strings pitched an octave too low. Once I'd corrected that it worked excellently, but do be aware that if your uke is totally out of tune you might struggle getting things in order using only this tuner.
