Kind of small-but it works

The tuning fork appears well made but small. Even if you touch the vibrating fork to your guitar it goes from barely audible (before touching) to not very loud (after).

The tuning fork appears well made but small. Even if you touch the vibrating fork to your guitar it goes from barely audible (before touching) to not very loud (after).

Checked against an electronic tuner it seems spot on. I can see the utility as a backup since electronics break or run out of battery power at the worst moment and the compact size makes it easy to fit in a guitar case.

The problem is that you will need a relatively quiet environment to make practical use of it. That is perfectly fine at home with a classical guitar. Not so workable elsewhere with higher ambient noise level.

Old school/old guitar guys used tuning forks almost the same way piano tuners did. I'm sure you've heard the phrase "in the days before we had tuners." Well, most of us HAD tuners; simply these steel ones.
You have a, well, pretty good ear to use these, especially in conjunction with the other strings (unless you also have A/D/G and B forks!). Certainly an accurate pitch to calibrate from; the rest is up to you.

      Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Tuning fork:

      There are days when those little battery-operated tuners will NOT give you an accurate reading on the
      strings. (They can be hyper-sensitive and bounce all over the place.) That's when I reach for Ye Olde Dependble Tuning Fork to get my A's (!!) in gear. This an extra tuning fork, to keep in another guitar case for back-up.

            I am stickler about pitch and these are handy to have around. They are also small enough to carry in your pocket and are a well made item. Instant music!

              Bought another type of tuning fork and could not hear them. They are all small but this one is one that I can hear and thus works with my practice and backup for tuning. Would definately purchase again!!!

                Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Tuning fork:

                I included this old-school 440-A to my collection of battery operated tuners, in case I end up on an island without any 9-volt batteries. I have been using it for a reference tone and checking my ear against my battery-operated machines (not too shabby). The addition of the rubber "mouthpiece" makes it easy on the teeth!

                          You will need a back up tuning device eventually. And this one has agreat audible pitch that you can really hear. Plus the gripper is a goog feature.

                            Us a tuning fork for all around professional tuning. Digital and electronic tuners are OK but a tuning fork is just plain great. You can hear the harmonics in the strings. It may help you hear when to change strings. Old strings do not sing like new ones.

                                Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Tuning fork:

                                This tuning fork is a must have if you play a guitar. It's dead nuts on, the price is not a factor and should be used whenever you pickup your guitar to play.
