Does not work with a bass
kilovanni, 20.01.2021
I got this tuner as a secondary tuner to my KORG CA-1 tuner. My main goal was to use this with my bass, but alas, the thing does not pick low frequencies almost at all. Both in audio and vibration mode.

Otherwise, it has a very good amount of features. The build quality is fine, but the switch on the back and the buttons don't feel that nice. At time, this tuner feels like some cheap toy. I guess it was at least cheap.

Pros:
- Price
- Features

Cons:
- Has trouble picking up lower frequencies both in mic and vibration mode. Low E1 and B0 are not picked up at all. One has to use either harmonics or fretted notes.
- Feels cheap
- Annoying metronome beep, but one should not use this as a metronome to begin with...

This thing has been sitting in a drawer unused now for months. I would not recommend this tuner.

Good value for the money
eMko, 02.02.2021
It's not a bad tuner, a bit slow but definitely useable.

The backlit display is a very nice touch, you can use it in dark. You can also calibrate it (I consider this an essential function for every tuner since sometimes you need to play with other instruments which are not as easy to tune as a guitar) or use it as a tone generator which is a nice thing.

It has an LED, complete nonsense. A metronome function is a nice gimmick nowadays since the tone is unpleasant and you can't connect headphones to it. A mobile app would do the trick.

Excellent Value
Xxlguru, 20.11.2018
I got it in the bundle and you can't beat that price :)

Plus:
Price
It is very accurate.
Size. It is light, handy and fast.
Easy to use to.
Clip is good and stays in it's place good.
Comes with a battery ready to go.
Display with a backlight.

Negatives:
Although good enough it does not look like it would take nice collision with drum set or microphone stand and tbh is not designed to be like that.
Display contrast and viewing angle is poor even with full battery.
Display backlight is strong and might be just bit to strong for a dark stage. On other side for some applications it might be exactly what you need.

Almost unusable in both mic and vib mode
Satrapo, 14.09.2020
Almost unusable. You need to really isolate each sound completely so that the tuner doesn't get confused and picks up random noise.
The metronome also has such a weird sound that is confusing. If you try to use it without the accent beat, each beat will be a sort of double sound...why?
I bought this in the interest of practicality...but to be honest, I'd rather take each time my pedal and cables and plug in, rather than handling this mess.

Very useful but...
Tom5474, 18.02.2014
This little device is very useful. Once calibrated, it is very accurate. It does need a quiet room to work perfectly: I found that if I used it in a pub I had to remove it from the head of the guitar and hold it next to the strings - tricky enough since most of us have only 2 hands...
Once the battery provided ran down I bought the same type of battery and fitted it. There must be some problem with the voltage as the lights do not remain steady, but vary from flat to sharp wildly. In essence, the tuner is no longer reliable.
To sum up, then: the tuner is good value for the price, but tricky to use in a noisy environment. Be careful with the battery when replacing the original, as slight voltage fluctuations may render the tuner unreliable.

Still works many years later
Gary H, 03.05.2020
It's stood the test of time, bought this many years ago but only reviewing now. Does everything you need it to but one might say a little outdated given the advent of smartphones. Viewing of the screen is hindered from certain angles but there's great freedom on the axil after you clip it on.

HB MT100
Richard276, 30.12.2015
This is a very versatile clip-on tuner, well worth the money. It's way better than what most built-in tuners (in amplifiers and multieffect pedals) will offer you. It's very reliable, easy to use and is generally ready for any situation. You can change the calibration so if you want to try different tuning calibrations (such as A4 = 432Hz) it will allow you to tune to that tuning instead of the standard (A4 = 440Hz)

Overall: This tuner is very versatile especially considering the price, and will not disappoint you. If you are looking for a good clip-on tuner and you don't want your wallet to go on a diet, look no further. You can't go wrong with this.

Might do the job
jakecar, 13.07.2019
Has a lot of great features for the price, but the quality of the plastic is really bad (Mine broke in a month of use). But if all is all the tuner may not be able to tune anymore but the metronome works just fine so I cant say that it was a complete waste. I would say that if you are looking for a steady tuner that will last you long this is not for you, but if you are a beginner it might be somewhat useful if you take good care of it. As far as the tuning quality was I cant say I was disappointed.

Complex for such a simple device
Rummidge, 10.07.2019
I understand there are many functions on it, but let's face it, most of them are not used. It is not nice to have to navigate through seldom used functions for just on/tuning/off.

Many times the metronome starts ticking unexpectedly.

But it tunes your guitar, though.

Great Value for money but it has some qulity issues.
Antonios M., 23.11.2014
This item has great features: tuner & metronome, all in one!
However, it does have some quality issues:
When tuning a bass it has trouble tuning the lower strings.
The metronome tends to be a bit slower than the actual speed.
The part that connects the electronic/screen part to the clip broke, so I had to glue it back. Now the screen doesn't turn round, but the tuner still works.

On the plus side:
Great price for the features that it offers, so I would definitely buy another one!
Bright screen, tunes a guitar fine and the metronome is loud enough for the size of it!

Great little tuner, easy to use and so easy to up. Realy liked the metronome and the way you can change the settings. The read out is easy to see and bright enough to be easily visible in low and glary lighting (with no reflections on the screen. Just clip it in to your head stock press the power button and away you go. Unfortunatley it doesn't pick up the high E on my HB SC-450 BK so well, seems to dither about being unsure what string your plucking and seems to prefer the low E. Why ? may be better suited to an acoustic rather than an electric. other than that i would have given it four stars. its well made and sturdy looking for its size.
T D good service and very helpful.

Affordable multifunctional gadget
Davor T., 13.11.2014
It's primary use is as a clip-on guitar tuner, and sometimes as a metronome. I had some difficulties understanding the meanings of buttons, but once you get them, it's easy to use.
It has a great price/performance factor though, so it doesn't really matter much.
I can recommend it for an average user.

Edit: my kids managed to break it in half, so that the main unit broke off the holding part. I used some superglue and it's still functional, both via the microphone, as well as via the vibration (touch sensor).

This little device really provides a much easier option for a metronome (which is why I got it) instead of using my phones metronome app. It is exactly as described. I like it has a bringht display and the the metronome is packed with features. Only negative I could suggest is mine was shipped without a battery which meant I couldnt use it straight away but that didnt really worry me.

Great tuner but keep an eye on the foam pads
Woza, 06.04.2018
This is a great tuner with several other features built in, but keep an eye on the foam pads. I failed to notice that one had fallen off at some point until I spotted some nasty scratches to the head stocks of several new guitars, all of which happened to be gloss black which made things worse. Aside for that mishap I would recommend this tuner.

Not sensitive enough
Tobias8782, 14.01.2014
I used this extensively on my last tour after my Peterson Strobo Clip was lost. This works ok, but it lacks sensitivity, which means that you have to hit the same string over and over again before it finds the right note. Once it finds/hears the note, it works well. I think it should be used as a backup for a better tuning clip.

Working well.
18.06.2014
Quite slow tuner. Takes long time for responding in both MIC. and vibration modes. Sometimes showing wrong string during tuning, but right tuning position. Metronome works well, loud enough for practising. Volume of metronome can be adjusted. Good tool for it's price.
