Great Tuner - Ticks All The Boxes
on 31 July 2015
This is a very nice clip-on guitar tuner, and works very well. In use the tuner has a red background, which changes to green once the string is in tune - it's very clear and easy to use. There are also a number of options. There are four modes: G = guitar (standard tuning), V = Violin (standard tuning), B = Bass (standard tuning) and C = Chromatic. I tend to leave it on chromatic, but the other modes are handy if you're not sure of the correct tuning for each string. The pitch for A can be adjusted from 435Hz to 445Hz, and if you tune to standard concert pitch, you need to check that you have it set to 440Hz. Finally the tuner can be set to "clip" which picks up vibrations from the instrument, which is the usual method of using it with a guitar, or via a microphone. It defaults to "clip" on switching on. So you have various options, but most people would just set it to A440, "C" and "Clip" and then forget about the other options. Finally it runs of one CR2032 battery unlike some tuners which require two. As long as you rember to switch it off after use, the battery lasts for ages. You know when it needs changing as the tuner becomes slow and erratic to respond. Overall this is an excellent tuner and I am very pleased with my purchase.
