The revolutionary Planet Waves S.O.S. Bass Tuner pulses 2 out-of-phase LED light beams directly onto the vibrating string. When the string is out of tune, the 2 lights will visually dance on the string being tuned. As you approach in-tune status, the movement slows down and eventually stops when you are perfectly in tune. This revolutionary visual tuning system enables precision tuning in silent or noisy environments, without the need for audible sound or sensing of any kind.

By Carlos Rodrigues

from NYC, NY

PROS: Pretty accurate, convenient, light based low cost tuning in a compact design, no need for direct connection to bass CONS: Only works for bass strings not guitar, dial in knob for note string (E,A,D,G,B,C), have to shine LED light and hold real steady on string being tuned to see light fluctuations. Overall it's a great value for the money and a time saver at gigs and recordings ...

SOS tuner

By musicdude40

from Lubbock, TX

this tuner is pretty good. the only thing i didn't like about it is that it doesn't tell you which way the string needs to be tuned, so you have to experiment and see if tuning it one way makes it more or less in tune. also, it can be difficult to tell if the lights are completely still or not. if you are one of those people that have to have their guitar perfectly in tune, i would recommend getting a different tuner.
