It is made of plastic and doesn’t seem roadworthy to me and after using it for a couple of minutes it started experiencing issues.
The tuning seems accurate all be it a little slower than advertised and it does cover a vast array of tunings plus you can create your own. Overall; a clever gadget but in my honest opinion not worth the hefty price tag.
And my ears, of course. But everyone's got different ears, and some are better than others. And tuning in a noisy place when the rest of the band are tuning around you and you're trying to introduce a song ain't always that great. And if you've ever tried using a Boss pedal at a brightly lit festival you'll realise that even the best visual tuners have limitations.
Roadie 2 swerves right past all that. It takes five minutes to get used to. It takes around 30 seconds to tune a guitar. Maybe a tad longer if you're going from Standard to DADGAD and you need to dial in the tuning first. A few extra seconds if you've just added a capo (gosh. It knows about capos too). It's got lights for dark places, and noises for bright places.
And it's SO in tune. every time.
The only limitation appears to be the need to start from the bottom string and work up. That probably adds a few seconds that aren't always necessary. Though this thing is so clever it always finds some strings that need a tweak.
I've got one criticism, that doesn't mean I'm giving it less than five stars. It'd be nice to get one in a metal case. Looking at it, that doesn't seem impossible, for the main body of the unit. They can consider this a pre-order if they ever figure out how to do that.
It can’t tune my mandolin though because the pegs are too tight and the motor can’t turn them but other than that tuning my guitars particularly to non-standard tunings is a breeze. Definitely a worthwhile purchase for me.
