аккуратный малыш в п&#1077
Монст&#108, 15.06.2019
Прекрасный тюнер. Раньше пользовался хроматическим tc electronic polytune, но с увеличением числа педалей решил избавиться от лишнего. Некоторое время пользовался нагрифным тюнером, но оказалось тоже недостаточно практичным лично для меня. В итоге решил взять напольный мини-тюнер. По функционалу нареканий нет-даже при солнечном свете неплохо видно дисплей, точность настройки чрезмерно радует. Вес и габариты тюнера тоже радуют. Сейчас в чехле могу носить не только гитару, но и весь педалборд-в плане мобильности огромный плюс. Также понравилась цена.
Считаю лишним отделение для батарейки CR2032, хотя мало ли, может кто-то в самом деле ими пользуется. Особенно радует, что в отличие от аналога tc electronic разъём для питания находится отдельно от других разъемов. Благодаря этому у меня получилось собрать свой педалборд настолько компактно, насколько это вообще возможно. Минусов девайса не нашел.

Great, very compact tuner
i384, 20.04.2020
Very accurate and compact. I keep this on by board and primarily use the strobe setting. It doesn't seem to "lock on" as easily as my Boss TU-3 did, moving up and down slightly while a string rings out, but I suspect that's just due to a higher refresh rate and not any kind of fault. The tuner is very accurate and easily as good as the TU-3.

It takes 2 coin cell batteries if you don't want to power it from a PSU, and has little legs that extend from the sides to add stability and stop the unit from tipping over when it's stepped on due to how small it is, though you don't have to use these. I have mine velcroed to my pedalboard with no issue.

The only criticism I'd have is that it doesn't remember your settings. I use the strobe setting, which isn't the default, so I have to toggle the mode into the strobe setting every time I turn on the pedalboard PSU. Having batteries in the tuner doesn't remedy this, with no battery powered short term memory it seems. Also, I don't gig, but the display isn't as bright as the TU-3, so might not be the best if using it outdoors.

Overall, great for the price and highly recommended.

Korg Pitchblack Mini in live
Kacper Jahel, 14.02.2019
I use "Korg Pitchblack Mini" during my concerts. I travel a lot and obviously I try to reduce every 100g. It's quite important for me that despite "Mini" has very similar options like others (twice bigger and heavier), it's weight is around 150g whereas others around 350 or even 400g. It's simple, work fast, has clear and bright screen, few options of tuning visualiser and you can tune not only guitar but bass as well...

PROS:
- small size
- small weight
- lot of functions
- quite big and bright screen
- consumes small amount of power

CONS:
- unusual type of batteries
Well, in that size, AA or even AAA batteries would be simply too big. You can buy these flat batteries in music store or media store (Mediamarkt, Auchan, Photo Joker, etc) and have at least 2 more with you, just in case. Especially if you usually play without external power during the night when shops are closed. It's possible none of your friend haven't even heard about that batteries and doesn't have any "by any chance" :-P But they are very flat and small so you can have even 10 in your wallet.

SUMMARY:
I like my small friend. And as me sweet filigree girlfriend is saying: "Small is beautiful!". And I completely agree :-)

small footprint, big display
Downer, 21.02.2018
I've used the full size Pitch Black tuner live for maybe 5 years and am very satisfied with it, so decided to try this for home use. The display is surprisingly big and easy to see from a standing position. It is very accurate, so good for intonation adjustments too, and reacts quickly. The display can be hard to see in daylight but I can live with that. However, the note names are hard to read close up as the lit parts of the letters also illuminate the non-lit parts. The tiny batteries ARE included, despite what it says in the description. The battery compartment cover could eventually fail, it has a small plastic tab which seems a bit flimsy - but luckily I don't foresee having to change the batteries very often. Also most mini pedals have no battery capability whatsoever, so it's good overall, especially when you can't be bothered to get out your power supply just to tune up. For this reason, it makes a great tuner for backstage and is small enough to fit in your pocket. One important thing to note: most other mini tuners I have seen only have +/-1 cent accuracy - that's quite a big margin of error and can leave your guitar sounding out of tune. This tuner is the only mini tuner I found which has +/- 0.1 cent accuracy. That's about as precise as it gets. For those who want a mini tuner, this is the best one out there. Works fine on bass too.
UPDATE: I tried using this during a daytime gig outdoors and the display was IMPOSSIBLE to read! Even cupping it in my hands, it was still totally unreadable. I couldn't tune my bass with it at all. Had to use a PolyTune. I have to take some stars off the rating for that...
