The GT-120 guitar and bass tuner combines the accuracy of needle-type meters with superior functionality and an easy-to-use design.
The GT-120: a new style of needle-type meter
The needle-type meter that has enjoyed enduring popularity for its clear visibility and stable detection is now available in a handy size, with the meter located at the top of a sleek black aluminum body. The backlit LCD screen also shows the calibration setting, flat mode, note name, and the remaining battery life. Flat (b) and sharp (#) LEDs light to indicate pitch drift or perfect tuning in a way that's easily visible even on a dimly lit stage. A large dial makes it easy to choose the mode you need to use. Using the stand located on the back, you can conveniently place the GT-120 upright on your amp or other surface while practicing.
Two different tuning modes: auto and manual
The GT-120 supports seven-string guitars and six-string basses. In "auto" mode, string names are automatically detected and the LCD automatically shows the name of the note that's closest to the pitch you play. In "manual" mode, you first choose the name of the note (C-B) you intend to tune.
Support for open tunings and flat tunings
The GT-120 supports open tunings often used with slide guitar or finger picking, with five tunings that include open D/E/G/A as well as DADGAD. The flat tunings are also supported, down to a maximum of four semitones below standard pitch.
Built-in mic allows tuning of acoustic guitars
Since a condenser mic is built into the GT-120, it's also easy to tune acoustic guitars on the fly.
The calibration can be adjusted in a range of 438”445 Hz to accommodate a variety of standard pitches. With its wide detection range of A0”C8, the GT-120 lets you tune to any song or key.
The GT-120 can play a reference pitch in a range of C2 (65.41 Hz)”C7 (2093 Hz), letting you tune using your ears while you also watch the meter. The large speaker provides extra volume.
Long battery life
The GT-120 is designed for an extended battery life of approximately 100 hours when running on two AAA batteries. It can also be used with an AC adapter (sold separately).

This is a great tuner that will serve well on your bench and can travel if treated carefully. The onboard mike is sensitive, and the analog meter is a pleasure to work with. Unfortunately this tuner does -not- actually have a "sleek aluminum body"... just the face of the device is metal, the case itself is plastic. The analog gauge and flawless function make up for it, but just don't expect this thing to stand up to rough treatment. Mine is working great.
I was nervous about buying a fairly new product. Things have turned out mostly OK. The D'Arsonval movement is everything I had hoped for, working -much- better than a digital tuner. The mike is sensitive. The dial selector is smooth and tactile w/o being too stiff, and the keys don't have any double-bounce issues. Treated gently, this tuner should give great service for many years.There are a couple of cons to this device to consider: the "sleek black aluminum body" doesn't exist and should be taken off the description. This tuner is PLASTIC with an aluminum face plate. One side out of 6 does not an "aluminum body" make. Also, the choice of AAA batteries is unfortunate for all the usual reasons. The claimed 100 hour life is with the backlight turned off and that brings us to the 3rd issue; if you're over 30 you may need that backlight on, because the LCD display uses a small font, as does the silkscreened case. To be fair, I'm sure its not the only tuner that has that problem but in this case there was plenty of room to work with as this is not a compact design.All three of these issues could have been worked around and at the price you're paying for this device, should have been. But its still a great little tuner and I've no plans to get rid of it. It would be perfect on your shop bench or studio but would have to strapped down pretty tight somewhere to gig with. With a serious case for roadworthyness, a sensible battery and larger type the GT-120 could be a perfect Ten.
