I was given one of these by a pro musical friend, and I must say it's a great product. You attach it to the side of the violin body next to the neck (upper left bout) and leave it there. It's always there when I need a quick tuning, and it does NOT interfere when I put my violin back in the case. Just put it on and forget it. The buttons work fine, it has + and - buttons to change pitch from the default 440, you can flip the display over with another button, and it even has a flashing metronome (no sound). Really easy to use, and all these features are great, but if you install it or use it improperly, it won't survive. It's VERY small (around 1" square) and it mounts to the violin with a sliding foot and cam mechanism. The trick is to mash it down as tight as you can then lock the cam lever and it will be fine. If you don't get it tight enough, it might fall off, but that's pretty easy to get the hang of. Another thing, these tuners (and that includes most digital tuners) respond MUCH better to pulling a full, lasting tone on the string with your bow - - NOT by plucking the string! Bowing is MUCH more accurate, and the tuner responds better. Just physics. Also, keep it turned OFF when not in use, and the battery will last a long time (one of my pet peeves is these people who leave their tuners on all the time, flashing and changing color endlessly). What a waste! One more thing, the buttons are very close together on top, so be careful NOT to hit the + or - button by mistake or you'll be tuning and playing OUT of standard 440 before you know it (boy, that's embarrassing!). The display is rather small, but bright enough to show up fine except in the brightest sun. Other than these few "DUH" points, this is the best violin tuner money can buy and it will serve you well. I've had mine now for 2 years and I play daily and have only changed the battery once. I highly recommend this tuner, and if you exercise any reasonable care it will do the trick!

    Loved the first one I ordered so much I ordered a second for another fiddle. Leave them on and it's like having a built-in tuner on your fiddle.

          As an experienced performing musician who has decided to add fiddle/violin to my repitoire of instruments played, I found this tuner a solid tool for not only normal tuning, but also a training tool that hel poo s me observe my intonation as I practice. This is a great little tuner that has accuracy, sensitivity, and function all rolled into one compact unit.

                              They live on my violins and mandolins and are great; however, one would not register the lower octave range of the cello.
