OVERVIEW

The compact tuner's vibration-sensing capabilities let players tune easily and accurately in any performance situation, and its bright LCD screen is ideal for the darkest stages. An easy-to-read needle displays green when in tune but changes color to indicate sharp of flat notes.

my old head stock tuner got to where it wouldn't turn on, so I replaced it with a Fender "California Series" blue plastic see-thru model from China,, and I didn't expect very much. WOW I was knocked out! I put it on my telecaster, it turns green when it's in tune, with no drift, and has really simple bars which show too flat, too sharp. The guitar tuning was spot-on. Tried it on an acoustic, same result. I COULD NOT believe how accurate and easy it was. So, I thought, for this price, there has to be a catch. NOPE It did the same dead-on-the money job on my bass and my mandolin. It turns on automatically when you put it on the instrument. An added thing that really doesn't matter, but if you keep it on your head stock, it changes the letter it shows to whatever root key you're playing in. REALLY got pleasantly surprised by this one!

Decided to buy this tuner after reading the comments. I don't like the fact that you can't turn it off once it's on the head stock, but I can live with that. My problem is that the description states that it works in any type of environment, but the one I just purchase, at least, is unreadable outdoors, which is where I do a lot of my playing. I had to borrow another tuner yesterday. Tried it in sun and in shade and still impossible to read. Another person commented they had the same problem with their California clip on.

      The third time I went to use this, I found that the battery cover fastener clips had broken from the interior spring pressure. Just bad engineering. Sorry Fender.

        Comments about Fender California Series Clip-On Tuners:

        It's quirky, in that it doesn't have an on/off switch - it comes on when you attach it to the peghead, and doesn't turn off until it's removed, so if you want to save the battery, you have to remove it every time you're finished tuning. That said It does a very good job of tuning, with a large screen that changes color when each string is in tune - makes for easy tuning. Even with the large screen, it is quite compact.

                  Could be a weak battery but it takes a long time to activate. If it didn't cost so much to ship it back I would return it. Into the junk box with the rest of the inexpensive tuners.

                      This is a good tuner. Accurate and easy to use. You would not go wrong in buying this and there are a lot of clip on tuners on the market. I have many and this seems to work the easiest and is accurate. I also own a Boss pedal tuner and it is almost as accurate as it is but very portable.

                      It just does not work at all. It came with a battery so I'm not sure if it is dead or the unit does not work.
                      it is not worth buying a new battery nor the trouble to get a return number and send it back.
                      Bought it and several other items with a gift certificate that I was given for another return item
                      that did not work as described.

                      Service and delivery comments:

                      I have always had good delivery and service with musicians friend but it seems like some of the
                      smaller items such as the tuner are poor quality.This is the second clip on tuner I have purchased.
                      The first one came apart (spring broke out) soon after I bought it.

                              my old head stock tuner got to where it wouldn't turn on, so I replaced it with a Fender "California Series" blue plastic see-thru model from China,, and I didn't expect very much. WOW I was knocked out! I put it on my telecaster, it turns green when it's in tune, with no drift, and has really simple bars which show too flat, too sharp. The guitar tuning was spot-on. Tried it on an acoustic, same result. I COULD NOT believe how accurate and easy it was. So, I thought, for this price, there has to be a catch. NOPE It did the same dead-on-the money job on my bass and my mandolin. It turns on automatically when you put it on the instrument. An added thing that really doesn't matter, but if you keep it on your head stock, it changes the letter it shows to whatever root key you're playing in. REALLY got pleasantly surprised by this one!

                                    Decided to buy this tuner after reading the comments. I don't like the fact that you can't turn it off once it's on the head stock, but I can live with that. My problem is that the description states that it works in any type of environment, but the one I just purchase, at least, is unreadable outdoors, which is where I do a lot of my playing. I had to borrow another tuner yesterday. Tried it in sun and in shade and still impossible to read. Another person commented they had the same problem with their California clip on.

                                    Great little clip-on tuner. So far seem to be accurate.
