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!

I was anxious to own a tuner that didn't need a mic or cable. Unfortunately, this one disappointed me (I expected a little more reliability and durability considering it was the more expensive model). Frequently it had difficulty detecting anything from my high E string, regardless of where I placed it on the headstock. Also, in less than a year and only a dozen or so hours of actual use, it decided to stop detecting notes completely, only displaying the "mode" headings. I always kept it in its case and used it only to tune up prior to church services if needed. For the money I found this tuner disappointing. I have an inexpensive Korg LCD tuner I bought 5 years ago that doesn't even have a protective case, yet still serves me reliably to this day (on the same original batteries!).

Great tuner for the price

By StopTheStringBuzzing

from Columbus, OH

Comments about Intellitouch PT1 Tuner:

First the review on battery life is odd. I've had mine since this model first came out and use mine daily and only have had to replace the batteries every couple of YEARS. It works awesome for acoustic instruments in loud environments, if you can keep the strings from picking up the noise too much.Also, this CAN be used on electric guitars, too.I use this on a couple Fender electric guitars and an acoustic. It has no problems tuning the electric guitars, but if your guitar uses really light strings or has poor transmission of vibration, it may not detect the notes at all. I use 11s (works a tad better than when I had 9s) and you can clearly feel the vibration of the strings at the head, (which is a good thing).It works well and is consistent with the other two small BOSS tuners I have in features and precision. Occasionally, it gets a little confused as to the note played, but (like other tuners I have used) it works best if you mute the strings between notes.The battery door broke off, thanks to my infant son, and the plastic cracked around the elbow where it bends. I had tried to tighten it because it was loose. The construction is its weakest attribute, as the plastic at the elbow is a stress point.

dead batteries

By Wayne-1s-B4

from Mankato, MN

Comments about Intellitouch PT1 Tuner:

Every time I tried to use this product the batteries were dead. I thought I had accidently left the tuner on, so I replaced the batteries, tuned my guitar, turned off the tuner and guess what, the next morning dead batteries. This happened several times. A set of batteries per tuning is too much, gonna have to get something better.

Great concept, but doesn't work well

By JiltedTunerOwner

from Colorado

Comments about Intellitouch PT1 Tuner:

I've had two of these in the past 5 years and both of them had the same problem. Neither of them would read some of my string's state of tune at any given time. Considering how much these cost I think this company should be ashamed of their product, as it is not well tested and the quality seems spotty. I don't recommend this tuner.

works pretty well

By Nehar

from old bridge, nj

Comments about Intellitouch PT1 Tuner:

I bought this on the recommendation of my instructor. Had it for a couple of weeks, and am pretty happy with it. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that on the bass notes it takes a few seconds for the tuner to lock to the frequency. As the manual mentions though, if you're having trouble getting a lock, pluck the string closer to the neck - works.

This is a very good product.

By Pedro

from Central Texas

Comments about Intellitouch PT1 Tuner:

I got the Intellitouch PT1 Tuner as a birthday gift about two years ago, and it has been amazing. If you've ever been in a band practice you know how hard it is to get tuned if you have to make everyone else stop playing while you use a tuner. With this tuner I can tune my guitars (acoustic and electric) quickly and easily and without disrupting our practices or performances.

Depends on the use

By GreenGidget

from Mars

Comments about Intellitouch PT1 Tuner:

This is a great tuner for acoustic guitars but, if you have an electric or a bass, get the Korg AW-1 Acoustic Chromatic Tuner instead. This tuner either tuned my electric guitar and bass inaccurately or it just got confused and didn't work at all. Very good for acoustics though.

Not what I had hoped.

By JerL

from Springville NY

Comments about Intellitouch PT1 Tuner:

I bought this last week, and it worked ok for tuning my Strat. I followed the recommendations for plucking the string and letting it ring and it seemed ok. I tried to tune my Ovation, and it was not easy. It was hard to find a good place to clip it onto the headstock, and it was so close to the strings that I am sure that they played a little havoc with it. Next I attempted to tune my Washburn HP-85, which is a maple semi hollow body. It really couldn't identify the B string, or the A. Ironically I never had trouble with it on the E strings! I didn't even bother trying to tune my Seagull 12 atring. I just put it away and will return it Monday. It seems to be a great concept, but for me, I will stick to my Korg tuner that I have used faithfully.

Comments about Intellitouch PT1 Tuner:

I've owned many tuners and this is by far the best one I have ever used. Fast, accurate and I can use it in the recording studio without having to plug in. I like that's it's made in the USA and has Lifetime warranty. Well worth the money and peace of mind. I know own 3. Great tuner!

It's the worst tuner ever

By Dangelico

from Boston

Comments about Intellitouch PT1 Tuner:

It's a really bad tuner. It's not precise at all. After I use it I need to tune again by myself and for that money you can get something really good. The only good thing about it is that you don't need to plug the instrument or actually make a sound but it's really bad

New version a loser!

By Colonel-CPPxk

from Mississippi

Comments about Intellitouch PT1 Tuner:

I had owned a couple of the older models, and loved them. But when I received the "new model" I was heartbroken.It feels cheap in the hand, and I dislike the red backlight. The amber was easier to see. And the slide with thumb grip ridges is hard to use.Also, it didn't seem to tune as well as the older model.Run don't walk away from this one!!!
