Great little 2in1 tuner and metronome

29.07.2016
I needed something portable for practising (full-time music student who moves around a lot) and for tuning my guitars and harp.

Positives: it certainly does the job - I can tune all my instruments with it (electric & electro-acoustic guitars, ukulele, Celtic harp) and I also use it to test my tuning as I move up and down the scale. The metronome sounds are just about loud enough to hear over most instruments (tested with piano, guitar, ocarina, ukulele, harp, bodhrán) and the flashing light is useful when you do stop hearing the beat. There is also a scale on the back indicating BPMs for allegro, adagio, largo, andante etc. which could be quite useful for beginners or for those who never bothered to remember these indications.

These are the only functions that I use on it so I can't speak for any others. I have to say that it's pretty easy and intuitive to use. It came with a small instructional booklet but I didn't find the need to read it.

I am also really pleased that the two ON buttons (metronome and tuner, you can use either to wake the device) are intentionally built a bit lower and need to be pushed further - this prevents unintentionally turning it on while it's in your backpack or pocket and draining your battery.

Negatives: the sound of the metronome is really electronic- it's just a beep that can get quite annoying after practising for a while. I'd prefer a 'tock' sound which is much more pleasing to my ear. Moreover, it's not loud enough to use with a bodhrán or the higher register of an ocarina.

I also find it a little bit disappointing that it doesn't have any kind of memory function. It'd have been nice to be able to set a metronome speed in the memory which I can then select with just one button i.e. for practising scales at exam speed. But that is just something minor which doesn't really make me like the device less.

All in all, it's a great little machine that will faithfully help you on your journey to becoming a better musician!

Best tuner/metronome on the market, for more than 20 years

CelloCoach, 10.04.2018
Since I began cello, I have used tuners for intonation. KORG has a simple interface, in a durable little case. All my cello students use this tuner. Nothing else is better for cello.
