This is my first tuner I have ever used and I had No issues what so ever getting a perfect tune on my guitar within minutes of opening the box. It can be tuned by plugging the tuner to your guitar it also has a mic to tune your guitar to if you are not plugged in. Only issue is the screen is impossible to see with any shadow over it though the top has 3 led lights that you can use to tune just tune till the top led is green. Best of all anyone worried about the durability of this product you can register the product with KORG for a 3-year Warranty. Very satisfied

I bought this tuner because I wanted to get the cheapest one with the best reviews and all the tuners that received 5 stars were out of stock. When it came in the mail, I tried using it to tune my electric bass. This failed because my input wire was broken so I tried tuning my upright bass to it. On the E string, this tuner would just not do anything, it wouldn't pick up the note. I moved onto the other strings where I would play the note and it'd tell me I was sharp, and then i'd sharpen the note and it'd tell me it was flat. I saw another review where someone said it wouldn't tune their acoustic guitar, which makes me wonder if it's only acoustic instruments, but I don't see why it would work like that. Either way, this tuner made me decide to start tuning exclusively by ear, so I got something from this tuner, even if it was an indirect result.

Works good but...

By kenneth stets

from Langhorne, PA

Works good but... is not chromatic, and won't help unless you always use standard EADGBE tuned strings.

Didn't care for it

By Gerald Day

from Gardner, Ks.

Screen is tough to see at certain angles, hard to adjust angles because my picks don't work in the snassy slot that's suppose to hold it up. Wouldn't care for it if it was easy to prop up. Waste of money glad I bought another brand.

No Fuss No Muss

By George Thompson

from Lexington Park, Maryland

Being from the old school of music, I remember the only way to tune a guitar was to play various notes and cords or use an old fashioned pitch pipe which wasn't always accurate. Then came along tuning by way of the computer again, it had its drawbacks. This product beats both previous methods by leaps and bounds. I would highly recommend it as both a beginners tool and to be used by those who have been playing for seversl years like myself. Great device for both electric and acoustic guitars. If you can't tune your guitar with this device, you should pick up a new interest.

Handy Tuner For My Bass

By Stephen Buntrock

from Buchanan Dam, TX

Pro -This is a handy, inexpensive little tuner that fits in a case or pocket, is easy to use on either electric or acoustic instruments and works great for 6-string, 12-string or bass guitars. Con - The little slot on the back to insert a pick for a "stand" doesn't work w/ my Fender medium and thin picks. The audio tuner tones are an octave above a guitar and two octaves above a bass note. I don't use either feature so I don't care. It doesn't have all the fancy options of more expensive tuners and I wish it had banjo and mandolin settings but I have another tuner that tunes everything but bass so this will be the one I toss in my electric bass case. It's perfect for my needs as a plug-in bass tuner.

Bad Tuning

By Yerenny Calvo

from NY,NY

I bought this tuner a while ago at a low price, It's my first tuner. I began to use it and thought at first that it might be my guitar that was wrong but it's not the case, every time I use it to try and tune my guitar it's horrible, it will tune my guitar wrong as well. This tuner is just a pain in the butt, please do not waste your time with it, you'll just get annoyed and probably try to throw it in front of a bus.

Worthless after battery change

By Thomas Trojan

from Las Vegas, Nevada

You would expect a device that runs on batteries to continue to properly operate after changing the batteries. WRONG! Despite purchasing 3 sets of new AAA batteries, and running each set through the tuner, the tuner failed to pick up the sound of any string struck on any acoustic guitar I own. Not only this model, but the silver model as well. Would not recommend these items to anyone who expects to use it past the initial life of the original batteries. Complete waste of money.

Great tuner, Great price!

By T.M.

from Hobart, IN

We picked this tuner up to use for both bass and electric guitar. It was amazingly easy to use and I was able to tune the bass within minutes. The guitar is a gift so will have to wait a bit longer before tuning. There are a lot of tuners out there with a much heftier price tag....this was perfect and was much cheaper than the rest! I definitely recommend this!

Compact and reliable

By rocknight99

from jacksonville FL

This tuner lives up to its name. It's compact and really easy to start using. Just plug in directly and adjust string until green light stays green. (LED allows you to adjust to alternate tuning as well). If you're not going to use it in live band situation, the lights are bright enough to see 10 feet away or more in dim lighting. Tunes guitar or bass in great, tight package!
