I own several expensive tuners and this is the one I take with me to every gig! It's accurate, fast and I use it on both electric and acoustic guitars, in several different tunings. I work in tough conditions (street musician) and this tuners keeps me on top of things.The key to using it is to make sure that the only string that's vibrating is the one you're tuning. The tuner gets confused if several strings are vibrating and it's really sensitive to this. So I use my left hand to stop all strings and then carefully strike the string I'm after. Also, if you are holding on to the neck or have a death grip on the tuning knob, you'll get a funky reading. Sometimes it doesn't want to pick up on a string, and you just reposition it a little and it'll pick it up. It's handy, quick, accurate and easy to use if you keep those tips in mind. Nothing is better in my mind!

I've seen people use these on stage before. It seemed like a great idea. You clip it to your peghead and it lets you tune your instrument without worrying about the placememt of an electronic tuner. Well, after I dropped my Qwik Tune tuner for about the 20th time because I can't balance the tuner on my knee while reaching up to the peghead, it was time to buy a new tuner (the Qwik Tune broke). I bought the "bare bones" version of this tuner from a music store because my Qwik Tune only cost about twenty bucks and I didn't want to pay too much for something that I'd never used (the Qwik Tune was always reliable and accurate after all), but it did solve the problem of where to hold the tuner so I forked out the dough. Performance wise, the Intellitouch works fairly well (it seems to be accurate), but it doesn't respond very well. I really have to pick a string hard to get this thing to register and sometimes when I pick a string hard, it still doesn't register unless I detune the string. I tried tuning my travel banjo with this tuner. It's a quieter instrument and I couldn't even get a single note to register on the Intellitouch!

The tuner jumps around letters. But the only time the tuner is actually right is when the sound is almost gone and when you pick it again you go through the same thing.
I have 4 of these tuners they work nice, sometimes you might have to find a different place on the headstock to clamp it, I have found out it does the best tuning if it is only pinched onto the headstock and not forced in tight, some of my guitars have better spots to clamp and tune, After loosing my first screw out of the tuner neck I started putting a drop of super glue on the nut that holds the tuner neck, I know its a good tune, You won't be sorry you bought it.
It is very convenient and reliable. Bang for its buck.
This tuner is awesome, not as awesome as the pt1, but it's stil a great buy. I play guitar, bass, and violin and it works wonderfully for all three of them. Highly recommended.
I took the tuner out of the box and it didn't work. Absolute junk!!!
Difficult to change the battery without breaking the battery cover. Not as accurate as it should be. Mine failed after less than 1 year. Good in concept - poor in execution. Not at all well built, and not worth buying.
I got the PT-1 as part of a package deal when I bought an acoustic bass. At first I thought it was going to be a real pain in the neck. The note does not register until the string vibration has almost left the audible range. And like the instructions read it works better with a light finger pluck than it does picks. At first it didn't want to reigister the low E string on my bass but after ten minutes or so of tuning the other strings it registered the low E just fine. I've used it now on my mandolin, fiddle, banjo, electric and acoustic guitars and 12 strings and it works great. I swear it learns what you expect of it and delivers.
This tuner works great. I can tune even while others around me are also tuning. The only problem I have with the PS2 is the lack of a back-lit display, which makes tuning in a dark environment difficult (the PS1 is back-lit for a few more dollars). It stays clamped to the bridge of my stand-up bass, so I always know where it is (except when someone wants to borrow it 'cause their tuner doesn't work).
I know a lot of tuners don't work well and aren't usually sensitive enough, but this is the worst tuner I have used. It barely works with my classical guitar (which is what I use it on mostly) and it will usually take at least 7 or 8 minutes just to tune my guitar because of the low sensitivity. The vibration sensor is a nice feature but is pointless considering IT DOESN'T WORK!!! Don't even try this on an electric guitar let alone a bass. And it doesn't even have the light. Don't buy this tuner.
I have been trying play music for over the last forty plus years. I have learned some things along the way in those years and that this tuner is great, I do have another inline tuner but , this is so much better. It clips on to my head stock great too. I do know if you move or kind of dance while playing most every song you will lose a cliped on tuner.
Works great most of the time, can't be beat on acoustic instruments. Have had problems in live situations, lots of ambient noise from a bass cab drum or other instruments throws this thing off. Either you tell the whole band to be quiet (yea right) or you just get it close and go for it. ***good for tuning anything, but does not play well with others. ****
I've owned this tuner for about a year on my mandolin and have only one bad thing to say about it. It really needs a backlight. If you're playing a gig and the lighting is low, you don't want to try and use a lighter to see it. Other than that, it is tough, reliable and dead on. Noisy environments are no problem (just tell the drummer to lay off while you tune, because the vibrations will throw it off). Other than that... excellent, excellent tuner. 2 of my bandmates replaced their corded Korgs with this (actually the backlit PT-1 because of my lighting complaint) and they are happy with them. If you can stretch a little, get the PT2, if not, believe me, you won't regret it! Oh, and the guy below needed to call the company. They have EXCELLENT support!
This tuner is ok for the living room, or for porch parties, but it is definitely not made for the pro. I have only had mine a year and, it already has begun to be "persniketty" with its accuracy and overall reliability. If you're looking for a reliable and durable tuner, seek another type. If you just want something quick to have around, this may be the right tuner for you.
1 year, same battery, no loose parts, screen in fine condition and when tuning against a standard non-clip tuner for refference the differences are miniscule, i've never had a problem..............tuned an electric no issues too......... did i get the only good one?
This tuner is very nice it is so accurate and since it works by the vibrations of the guitar, you can tune with music blaring, or people talking.
It is easy and quick to read. One reason being that side arrows and letters are large. Love it.
This has been a great tuner for a good five years for an acoustic guitar. It isn't so good for electric. My only problem is the little hinge screw falls out every couple of years. In the past Intellisystems mailed me one free. Now I cannot find their website.
It works but it's a bit off sometimes. Also sometimes it has a hard time picking up the correct note or will show up two different notes after you haven't changedethe tuning on it yet.
I purchased the Intellitouch PT2 Tuner about a year ago. The concept is great. The tuner functioned really well for its first "battery life" and then hasn't worked properly since and is not worth it to me to ship back considering I'm working overseas. Maybe the bugs need to be worked out of it.
Easy to use, accurate, convenientJust pop it on hit power and play. You'll get an extremely accurate reading without breaking your wallet.
