Fender FCT-12 Chromatic Guitar Tuner
Fender FCT-12 Chromatic Guitar Tuner
Offered by Musikshop Speyer
Price: 10.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant little item., 8 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant. Clips onto the headstock and tunes guitars really quickly and accurately. Also tunes Basses and a couple of other instruments. Really easy to read display, small and light enough to leave on the guitar while you play if you want to. Only downside seems to be a voracious appetite for batteries. Much better and easier to use than my Korg chromatic tuner. Highly recommended.

This review is from: The Haunted Book (Hardcover)
Didn't do it for me I'm afraid. A bit too clever for it's own good. Characters I didn't really like, situations which I've read before in better books. Sorry.

Quite hard to find in this colour. Looks great on a gold Telecaster Cabronita Thinline. Well made, end leather seems a bit thin but no issues so far.

Cost pennies and does the job perfectly. Removed the bracelet from an old Ingersoll in a few seconds and replaced it with a leather strap, no dramas, easy to use. No sign of if bending, seems decent quality. Happy with the price and the item.

Does what it says. Stick them onto a standard UK registration plate and they look fine. I've seen people saying they look stuck on or don't match the shade of yellow...so what? They cost less than a bottle of milk and look way better than a soup-plate sized white GB sticker wrecking the paintwork. Stuck easily, seem durable enough, can't fault them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but needs support, 1 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This has the potential to be a really good gadget. Set-up was fairly straightforwards, although performance has been slightly hit and miss. It works well with YouTube, and using Plex via the app and a PC offers the possibility of video streaming from most sites. The main bugbear is the lack of apps in the UK. No ITV player, no 4OD, no 5OD etc. BBC iPlayer is brilliant on the Chromecast, but the others need to follow suit. Using an iPad I've also found some older video content won't play. It's not a huge amount of money to pay to get catchup TV, but I hope UK companies get behind the Chromecast, otherwise it's a bit of a lame duck.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Gadget, 1 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My boss bought one of these into work, and I had to get one. The sound quality from this fairly small device is just stunning, deep solid bass but still with clarity and subtlety on the high bits. With YouTube or your own playlists every song you can think of is suddenly available, at a fantastic volume and in brilliant quality. Word of advice, if you're using it with iPhone 4s and having trouble pairing, just press the Bluetooth button on the rim of the speaker. It doesn't tell you this anywhere! It comes with UK, US, Australian and European mains adapters, charges in about 3 hours and lasts for 5 hours on a charge. It's the perfect speaker to use in the garden or kitchen, no wires and no fuss. I've listened to more music since I got this than I have in a couple of years, it's so easy to just get what you want in a flash and hear it properly. Can't praise this thing highly enough, worth every penny. Buy one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for what I need., 28 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Looked at loads of different cordless drills, virtually no agreement on reviews. The Terratek got really good reviews as a basic, no frills tool. I'm not a DIY buff, I just need a decent drill and cordless screwdriver every now and again. This was really well priced, and is just what I needed. It's sturdily built and charged up in a couple of hours. It's be nice if the bits and screwdriver blades came in some sort of pouch rather than a plastic bag, but it's a small criticism. The drill has an adjustable torque control and coped very easily with mending my broken back gate. If you're looking for a reasonably priced, sturdy drill for occasional DIY jobs I don't think you'll go wrong with this. It even looks quite cool in orange and silver!

4.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable and look good, 19 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I find proper old style Cat boots very heavy for all day wear, so these seemed a good compromise. They're well made and very comfortable, I like the distressed look of them and they're quite light. They seem sturdy and look like they'll last a long time. I docked a star for the laces, they're awful and won't stay fastened! The best thing to do is cover them in neutral polish and dry them on a radiator, this works but it's a pain and shouldn't be necessary! Other than that very pleased.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant for small spaces., 19 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was having real trouble finding a small, well-made bedside cabinet to fit between my bed and a chimney breast. They were either too big, cheap and nasty or too expensive. This one is perfect. If you've got a smaller house or awkward shaped rooms it's perfect. It's big enough to fit a lamp, clock, glass and mobile on top, the drawer is ideal for chargers, cables, MP3 players and the like, whilst the shelves fit deodorants, tissues, books etc. The peg on the picture's been replaced by a strong magnetic catch which looks better. The cabinet is very well made from attractive solid wood, much nicer than horrible laminate, and it arrives assembled, so it's solid and sturdy. I looked at cabinets that cost twice this price and they weren't as good. Really impressed, it was packed properly send delivered quickly too!
