To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is the most accurate tuner I have ever used. And I've used a fair few. Very easy to recognise when a string is holding or not. It FEELs like it has very subtle sensitivity. VERY nice clear display, the best I have ever seen. Nice and big and easy to read and the colours are vibrant and add to the readability of the screen. Its not a gimick. My one gripe is the amount of time it takes for you to turn it on. You have to HOLD the button down for a good 3 or more seconds and wait for the screen to startup.. and the same when you turn it off. I guess I'm just used to the instant on and off tuners. I was prepared to pay a premium price for what I would definitely consider to be a premium tuner. If you think this is too expensive.. a cheaper tuner will still do the job. But.. this thing is really nice. Would definitely make any guitar players day if they got it for a Birthday present or something.
I bought this item due to high recommendation by expert. It is indeed a very good product. The clip is large and well padded, so it provides a good security for the guitar, especially if you have an expensive one. The window is large so it can be read easily. For a right handed person it is better if the button is on the LH side, although it can be turned upside down to get that. I highly recommend this brand to other guitarists.
Ubertuner does a good job on tuning and the screen is really bright and easy to read. A ring lights up around the note when you are in tune so you can’t miss. Not sure what the other buttons are for as I only ever use on/off.
I used this to tune my acoustic, electric, and bass. Validated the tunes with my digital piano. For its price, this is way better and economical one compared with other branded and/or expensive tuners out there.
Would highly recommend to have this in your collections.
The big, and only, problem with this tuner is that you must press for 2 or 3 seconds on a (small, stiffish) button before it turns on, then endure a further second-long animation before THEN actually being able to tune; similarly you must do this in reverse to turn it off. Whilst that might sound trivial, when all you want to do is throw it on a guitar, quickly tune up and play it adds a frustrating and irritating delay (particularly if you want to turn it off, too, although I guess you could just unclip it and chuck it out of sight, and let it use up battery auto-turning off). Just doing a very quick re-tune in the middle of your practice becomes a chore because of this. Once working the tuning is extremely accurate and easy to use, no problems on that front. I only use it on guitar, so the other modes are redundant for me. It's expensive, too... I suppose I thought I'd treat myself to a 'luxury' tuner but it wasn't worth it, both for the hassle and because I'm not using it for multiple instrument types. Overall I wouldn't buy it again, instead I'd just get a Snark which I've owned before, was just as accurate and was massively quicker and so more convenient to use.
This is a good little tuner and I sense that the company are customer-friendly, judging by comments that they have left in response to some unhappy reviewers.
The screen is bright and clear, the display stable and precise, and tuning is a much quicker process for me now. I also like the fact that - unlike a lot of revered tuners like the Boss TU-3, this little tuner can be calibrated to 432Hz (the Boss only goes to 436Hz), which could be important if you want to experiment with that tuning and its alleged benefits with a degree of convenience.
Construction: well, like most things it's plastic. But it appears to be designed well enough to last with sensible use, but not abuse. The battery can be changed quickly without fuzz (a coin battery, the number of which escapes me) and according to other reviews, will need changing about once a year.
Value for money: at the current Amazon price of £15, I think it represents good value for money. It's at least £20 elsewhere. And with a 2 or 3 year warranty, with a decent company to back that warranty, I think it's a great buy.
