I've owned two of these tuners. I only bought a second one because the first one was stolen! I use it onstage where it's usually dark. The tuner has seven bands and when you're in tune the center green one glows extra bright. Very easy to use. By the way, I bought a Behringer BXL900 bass amp for stage, and it turns out it didn't have a line out. So I used this tuner as a tuner and signal splitter, and it worked perfect, without draining the battery! Cool! Buy one or two, and they'll last you a long time. Highly recommended.

I bought this because the price was right and I wanted a stage tuner so I could leave my Boss tuner in the studio. BE WARNED! The Arion tuner is not a Silent tuner. You hear every note as you tune, which lemme tell ya, really wows an audience. Also, it noticably changes the tone of my guitar.I recommend it only for a beginner who doesn't care about their guitar tone, or if someone hears you tuning.However, the tuning is spot on. Which is the only good thing.

Great + reliable Tuner

By Telelover-gCa63

from NC

Bought this tuner used over 12 years ago and it has worked great in gig after gig. Bright lights that can be seen on the darkest stage and a jack that mutes when you tune. Mine looks terrible but works geat! Plastic battery cover won't go on straight, but otherwise this is a winner. I've spilled beer on it and dropped it many times, but it still works great. Hard to beat for the money.

20 years later,,,

By BHM3878

from Phila., PA

Bought the tuner my senior yr. of H.S. I can't remember the price. Gigged w/ it for several years. All these years later its still going strong. The wires broke away from the 9v connector but an easy fix w/ a solder lron. Onstage the muting output jack has never failed me, no crackels or scratches. Still all original. Worth every penny!

Best for the Money

By cjdisco

from Washington

I have been using this tuner for over 14 years and it has never given me any problems. Though it feels less sturdy that my other metal pedals, it has stood up to being thrown in bags and dropped repeatedly. The batter cover broke years ago, but a pieced of tape fixed that. I use a power supply, so it doesn't matter to me. If this tune came in a chromatic version there would be no better value available.

Best Tuner I've Owned

By George-I3mI5

from birmingham, AL

See all my reviews

I have had this tuner for 19 years, and it was used when I bought it! I have gigged it with Dozens of times, spilled beer and soda on it, dropped it etc. It has been the main tuner in every band I have been in since 1988. It still works better than any tuner I've had, including, SORRY, Digitech and Korg! I used it for intonation and setups etc in my shop! It would be a deal at 4x the price! I can't recommend it more.

Arion HU8500 Stage Tuner

By Doc

from Cosby, TN.

Whoever doubts this pedal to tune accurately is mistaken or has dropped it several times or misused and abused it, I have this item & It's been well taken care of, I play in standard tuning, Drop D & It tunes to the T, I love this tuner, I highly recommend 1 to ANYONE playing live on stage or at home practicing, You won't be disappointed, It is highly accurate & Spot on, I didn't spend an arm & A leg on it, This tuner works as well as a BOSS, Line 6, ETC....Only a fraction of the cost, I don't buy junk for guitar playing, I use ESP Guitars, It will tune accurately in Standard, Drop D, A, B, G, Most people who play and tune to drop d and lower buy the thicker gauge strings but don't have their guitar set up for it, The strings need to fit the guitar properly or it won't stay in tune, Therefore your tuning won't be accurate and or will come out of tune every time, The tuner also has the feature where you can tune it where you can hear the guitar or have it silent while tuning, Bottom line, I love this tuner, ARION HU8500 Spot on quick tuning every time!!

Surprised with this pedals durability. I have mine since I bought thru catalog on Musicians friend back in 1994. As of today it still works and goes with me everywhere. Nice lighting on the darkest places and fine tuning. Love the feature of allowing to tune silently, To bad is been discountinued.

Stubbornly does it's job

By Arion user

from Montana

Lights up pretty well. Simple to use. After a few months it started taking a strong stomp to get it started but I got used to that. Otherwise it has held up nicely and I have been using it for over a year now.
