Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Worthwhile Tuning Aid A very worthwhile tuning aid especially for those who are not blessed with "Perfect Pitch" I have only used this to tune an Acoustic Guitar using the built in mic. However there is a ј in socket provided for an electric instrument . It runs off two standard AAA cells, so no fiddling around with button cells ( watch batteries.) The instructions suggest holding the unit close to the sound source (instrument), Define “Close!” Personally I found that holding it too close (less than about 12 inches / 30cm) gives an unsteady reading and spurious results. The unit can be used in “chromatic” mode or using one of the built in presets for Guitar / Bass (Guitar) / Violin / Cello. The only difference between the Chromatic and preset modes is that in the preset mode the unit displays the sting number as well as the note where as in Chromatic mode only the note is displayed. Three LEDs give a flat ( red left ) / sharp (red right) / near enough (green centre) indication. The LCD shows a centre zero meter to give a fine tuning indication to plus or minus 50 also a small digital readout on the left hand side again 00 to + or - and it also displays the note (name) and if a preset is selected the string number. Other Useful / Pointless functions. The tuning indication and be adjusted by up to 4 flats (semitones) so if for example you tune your Guitar string 6-E to C, with four b (flats) selected the meter still indicates 6E. (or just E in chromatic mode). Calibration. The Unit does provide a manual calibration range of + or – 10 Hz. Output. The unit does provide an output tone (if desired) at the selected pitch. Although the built in speaker doesn’t handle the lower frequencies too well. It does however have a 3.5mm socket for headphones etc. Metronome. The unit has a built in metronome, which uses the LEDs and the LCD for visual indication and a tone for audible indication. The Presets are 1 / 4 , 2 /4 , 3/ 4, 4/4 , 3 / 8 and 6 / 8. with a different pitch indication on the first beat, also a simple repeating beat (no emphasis on the first beat of the bar) The “Tempo” being variable between 30 and 230 ( about 1 beat every 2 seconds to about 4 beats per second.) It also has a little flip out stand, which allows the unit to rest at about 45 degrees. Overall, A good little unit , well worth the money.
