Harley Benton Tuner

Raphi, 08.05.2016
The tuner should be my first Bodentuner, after I now have a few shows a year. After reading some of the reviews, I chose the Harley Benton product.

The workmanship is surprisingly impeccable. Clean paint, solid housing, everything where it should be. Only the inscription is not really my taste (but you can possibly still change). Nevertheless only one star, see below!

Too bad that no power supply is included, but a battery. How long this holds, I can not say at this time.

For me, the Mute Switch was essential, so that you can stop the signal to the amp by foot pressure and can calmly tuned his instrument.

The strobe button for me is nonsense, a confused disco light show begins, more bad than right.
I do not need the Calib button either.

The display is also easy to read from a distance.

For the guitar, the tuner is very well suited, with the bass I have the feeling that it takes a long time until it finds the beaten tone.
Also it takes quite a long time, if you want a completely disgruntled guitar, because the device then does not recognize the tones.

Either I have not yet figured out how it is, or it is just like this: As soon as you insert the cable and plays something, it permanently displays the played sounds. This can be annoying with time, since the ground is always a bit lit.

On the whole, I am satisfied, let's see how the tuner beats in the long run, I hope he keeps what he promises, for 59 euros one may expect something.

UPDATE:
Device is returned.
After 4 - 5 times use in the music room the device cracks unfortunately very loud when switching to the mute and back again. Too bad. So the Harley Benton tuner at least with me for a long time not proven. I will most likely opt for a different make and will not exchange the device.

Great value for money.

When I bought this pedal, I was somewhat skeptical.
But once installed on my board I was very impressed with this device. A fellow musician has a
almost the same ATU only of the Morley brand.
When he saw my CT-5 he was talking about the umpteenth clone, which subsequently do not meet expectations.
Well, this cries out for a deeper consideration in the strongest sense of the woord.Gewapend everyone with a screwdriver we were going to attack our pedals.
What surprised us was that the Morley had a separate battery compartment and the CT-5 does not. In retrospect it's no problem because we both use an external power supply. The electronics in the both pedals eyes different but gelijk.Zelfs operate the speed at which reacts the tuner are substantially equal.
I conclude that my name "Bacon buyer" is.Want the pedal of my colleague is more than double priced this device Thomann. For the umpteenth time I say "a clone is by definition not a bad kopie.In the contrary, especially in this case.
