The fact guitar tuners can be had for a tenner these days tells you a lot about the strides in technology in the 21st century.
I bought this tuner to take around with me when teaching and feel that it delivers what it intends to do: fairly accurate tuning feedback. I say "fairly accurate" because this particular model does not feature the overly erratic needle swings one becomes accustomed to in the highly sensitive tuners. This makes it perfect for tuning up quickly and in helping the confidence of student guitarists who can sometimes feel that something as "simple as tuning" can be challenging when they don't grasp the concept of tuning to the 'attack phase' of a note or the 'sustain phase' of a note.
Minor gripes: -there is no backwards cycling through the menus due to the minimalistic button layout. -can be a bit fiddly clipping it on and turning the display in the right direction.
Do you believe this rating to be inaccurate or unacceptable for some reason?
This Fender tuner is extremely convenient. As a music student, I have to tune regularly throughout the day. This tuner is probably one of the handiest I have had.
First, comparing it to pedals, it is far more practical in a small room and where you mightn't have a power source. Also, no need to be pulling out leads to tune, which I find rather annoying if you have to tune often!
Transportation, as one would imagine, is extremely practical. I have to carry my bass on my back regularly, with books, leads and other things, so it isn't taking up valuable space in my bag, nor is it any weight in my back.
When I first saw these tuners, I wondered how they could tune without leads and just on the headstock of your instrument. Turns out its really handy, don't have to worry about having your volume knob up full and turning off amps and other inconveniences normally consider with tuners.
It can work for many different instruments. From memory, it has a guitar, bass, chromatic option and other stringed instrument functions, just by a push of a button. Very easy to use, only two buttons on the back. I find it's very accurate.
Overall, I would highly recommend this tuner. Good value, small and convenient and works for many instruments. Read the instructions that come with it to know what each button does and to make sure you're on the right setting!
