Overview

The tried-and-true Intellitouch PT1 Tuner is designed to tune electric and acoustic guitars, basses, violins, banjos, mandolins, and more without interference from ambient room noise, all without the the use of wires, microphones, or pickups. Tuning in noisy environments is a snap because the unique, flexible clamp actually "feels" the instrument's vibrational energy instead of relying on sound.

The swiveling design allows a perfect view of the LCD display from nearly any angle.

Intellitouch learns and remembers letting you set any tuning frequency you require, saving that learned reference as a preset, even when it's turned off.

It has a 7-octave range and precision within one cent. Two 3V coin cell batteries provide 30 hours continuous tuning.

The Intellitouch PT1 Tuner is the best tuner I've ever owned. If aything ever happened to it, I'd get another one in a heartbeat. No cords or shushing the band, just clip it on and go. It is very accurate and the light makes it easy to see on stage. It is especially great in noisy environments. Battery life is excellent, I've used mine every day for for 6 months and the batteries are still going strong. I tune down a half-step, and it registers with no problems. All the other tuners I've used have a hard time with anything but standard tuning. The clamp isn't as strong as I would like, but that's the only drawback I can think of. Highly recommended!

Okay, my buddy owns this and I use it every so often. And lemme tell you right off the bat, I can tune a guitar better by ear then with this thing; and I've been playing guitar for about 3 months! But I do have about 3 years musical experience in general. It tends to be off by about a quarter or half-step. I guess his is pretty old, but still, if you're gonna spend that much money, get one that will last. Personally, I don't much like electronic tuners. I'd suggest getting one with reeds that you blow into and getting to know the notes on your guitar. Or if you really want and electronic tuner, spend less money and get a $20 one.

The Last Tuner I'll Buy

By kray

from NM

Comments about Intellitouch PT1 Tuner:

I haven't bought another tuner since buying this one. The best thing about it is its ease of use. No plugging in, no sitting it on your knee, no making everyone be quiet. Plus this tuner comes with a hard case so you can put it in your bag and not worry that you will break the plastic. If I ever lose it or accidently break it I would definitely replace it. The only thing that is a problem for me is when I tune my classical guitar. The width of the head stock on my classical guitar is larger than my other guitars and it's hard to fit the tuner on it.

A cool gadget

By coolwhip

from Dallas, TX

Comments about Intellitouch PT1 Tuner:

This tuner is a very neat invention - it rests invisible behind your headstock, tunes with reasonable accuracy, and is backlit for those dark shows. An added bonus - on electric guitar, you can mute your guitar and it still picks up the vibrations from the wood - great for gigging. I have used this tuner extensively on both acoustic and electric, and it has never let me down.Maybe a little on the pricey side, but if you're looking for an alternative to standard tuners, look no further.

Must Have For Live Shows!

By Doug Wimbush

from Orange County, CA

Comments about Intellitouch PT1 Tuner:

i play tons of live shows, and it has always been frustrating having to deal with pedal tuners and all the cables required to use them. bought this lil tuner a few nights ago and it was the best 50 bucks i have ever spent. probably not the most accurate tuner, but is close enough for live music. this tuner is very versatile. i found out that if u clip it on to your cabinet it is still very effective. A MUST FOR GIGGING MUSICIANS!

I Love My Intellitouch But.....

By mmukav

from Chardon, Ohio

Comments about Intellitouch PT1 Tuner:

The Intellitouch tuner has really worked out great for me. It's dependable, batteries seem to last a long time, it's easy to use. Just clip it to your headstock, turn it on, and off you go! The head is adjustable, so you can rotate it around for easy viewing. It's lighted, so easy to read in dark clubs or practice spaces. My problem with it is that it's touchy, sometimes hard to get a good, solid signal. I have to move it around on the headstock to find a good spot, and at times that spot changes locations. It's somewhat quirky, but very accurate and easy to use. A great value!

Not quite on

By iowaismine

from Iowa

Comments about Intellitouch PT1 Tuner:

I tried this tuner on my Martin acoustic and I've got to be honest, I didn't feel that it got the strings close enough in tune and I'd always have to adjust anyways. But I am kinda picky about tuning and my wife always tells me that I tune too much; maybe your ears aren't as sensitive? On the bright side, it stays hidden behind your headstock and it is backlit for dark clubs or venues. A lot of musicians just need help getting close to being in tune, I mean, how do you really know that that low E string is at an E? This tuner will be extremely helpful.

Intellitouch PT1 Tuner

By sohaibh

from Warwick, RI

Comments about Intellitouch PT1 Tuner:

This is a really handy tool and works fairly well. It just hooks to the headstock of the guitar and senses the frequencies and displays them on the screen. It doesnt respond really well to low frequencies like the low E string. If you tune down your guitar, it doesnt respond at all. Also I found that it doesnt detect the E and A strings on my 12 string guitar. Overall its ok if you use standard tuning and can tune the low E by ear.

Good Tuner for Jams

By Grant Wiscour and the Infidels

from Dallas, Texas

Comments about Intellitouch PT1 Tuner:

I bought my Intellitouch tuner for using at a local acoustic jam. The regular cheap tuners that have a little microphone built in were too hard to tune when the other guys were playing. I quickly saw why most of the pickers had this tuner. With the Intellitouch Tuner you can tune while everyone is playing. I sometimes use mine for a show but it always seems to go flying off my guitar when I get too wild. It has shot off 10 feet and still worked fine. Good Tuner

By stanpz

from Bethlehem, Pa

Comments about Intellitouch PT1 Tuner:

I'm about to purchase my second Intellitouch tuner after mistakenly sending mine to a friend along with a Babicz acoustic guitar. He raved about the guitar and the tuner ! I didn't have the heart to tell him it was a mistake. I have many acoustic guitars, mandolins and even a ukulele and the Intellitouch tuner works well on all of them. I sometimes wish the clamping device was a little stronger as it does tend to slip off if you are prone to leaving it on the guitar while you play.
