      Comments about Seiko SAT1200 Pro Chromatic Tuner:

      Bought this for doing harmonica maintenance. Harmonicas have several octaves of notes to be tuned, so I needed a CHROMATIC tuner.

      I'd recommend a different tuner for guitars (though this would work fine for a guitar too, but I prefer a pedal tuner for guitar, as those are made to mute your guitar while tuning, and be right on the floor handy and stable).

      This tuner will take a line in from a guitar, yes, or any instrument you wish to tune, but it will not pass the signal through to your amp, and it wouldn't stay put well anyway if you tried to use it like that. This is strictly for popping out the little stand arm on it, and set it in front of you and let its microphone pick up the notes you wish to tune. - So, again, for maintaining a harmonica, that's perfect. or even a piano I would imagine.

      It has a wide analog (needle) display, so you can get much more precise than with a typical guitar tuner which just shows a light when you get within range of being in tune.

      I'm very happy with it. It isn't built like a tank or anything, but that's fine because I didn't buy it for on the road abuse. I got it for fine tuning, when doing maintenance. At home.

      Of course this is just my take on it. Someone else may want it to tune his acoustic guitar or whatever, and oh it'd work great for that.

      But me, I'd rather have a pedal tuner for a guitar, and if you want a good recommend for one of those, try either a Digitech Hardwire Series HT-6 Polyphonic Pedal Tuner (can see all 6 strings at once with that, and it recognizes capo tuning), OR try a Korg Pitch Black (those are SHARP looking anyway).

          Excellent Tuner

          By Lance Baugh

          from Saint Louis, Missouri

          Comments about Seiko SAT1200 Pro Chromatic Tuner:

          I am a guitar hobbyist. I have two classical guitars - a good practice quality guitar and a performance quality guitar. I do not have absolute pitch and need a tuner to assist in accurate tuning. Over the years I have tried a number of tuners. Before buying the Seiko SAT1200 I was using a Korg CA-1. I was looking for a more accurate tuner and decided to take a chance on the Seiko even though it is a new product and I found no reviews. I have had it for about a week. This is an excellent product. It is much more responsive than the tuner I had been using (now relegated to it's original box and resting peacefully)and I have been able to tune more accurately. The tuner is larger than the Korg I had been using, but still fits in the palm of my hand, rests securely on a music stand, etc. One of the nicer features is that the pitch is indicated by a real needle - that actually moves - not a "needle" that is just a line projected on a screen. I am very happy with this item and do not expect to be looking for any other tuning method. I don't expect to have to replace it either, since my Seiko metronome continues to work perfectly after about 30 years. Lance Baugh
