Awkward, a bit ugly, but a very good tuner - Noisy!
Mombasaflash, 13.06.2018
This was purchased solely as a pedal steel guitar tuner - notoriously difficult to tune with 'standard' tuners that are mostly designed for instruments with tempered tunings, like the majority of guitar tuners.

The Strobo SP-1 is supplied with a sizeable number of 'Sweetened" tunings. In the case of the Steel Guitar it allows one to achieve the slightly sharp and slightly flat non-tempered tuning of the open strings AND the pedal/lever changes. I already have a SEIKO Chromatic CENTS tuner for tuning the various open strings and changes sharp or flat, but the digital display jumps around quite a lot and it is not backlit.

After a short period of getting used to how to operate it, this Peterson whips through the normally lengthy process in no time with an extremely clear readout. It can also be left inline and powered down without affecting guitar tone. Handy for quick tuning checks, but slightly awkward in practice because it is such an ungainly great lump.

Fortunately Peterson sells a bracket to mount it to a mic stand or Steel Guitar leg.

This would probably not be my first choice for a normal six string guitar. Too cumbersome.

UPDATE: Although it is advertised as being capable of being left inline for quick tuning access, I have discovered that it is unpleasantly noisy. It introduces an earth loop type buzz that does not go away - whatever fancy cable you use - until it is completely isolated from contact with the amp input, i.e. unplugged.

Very annoying.

Much less use than it should be for the price
Jenna, 26.08.2015
No doubt this is a well made product, but - and it is a very big but... The bottom line is that it is actually less easy to see it settle on a pitch and no more accurate than a decent, cheap tuner app. Overall I am disappointed with the product and instead I use the cheap Peterson cable which enables me to connect to my smartphone and use an app purchased for less that £3.00.
