These were on special sale Black Friday, so I ordered two, not knowing what to expect. It is a bare bones guitar tuner that tunes the 6 standard guitar pitches, referenced to 440 Hz, no alternate or chromatic tuning. The only control is a tiny power button recessed in the back. Have to hold the device between thumb & finger and squeeze. Auto powers off after 3 minutes. A battery is included.

The interesting feature is that it attaches to the guitar with a magnet built into the case. There is also a tiny hole in the case, so you can optionally tie the tuner to the guitar, if you can get a string through the hole. The tuner will attach to any piece of ferrous metal like the tuning posts, strap button, or metal bridge plate. I was surprised to find the the tuning buttons on most of my guitars are of a non-ferrous material. The magnet is strong enough to hold fairly well, but I wouldn't try transporting the guitar with the tuner on it, unless tied with a string. But the tuner is small and light, so easy enough to carry in a pocket. The flip side of the small size is that if you put it down somewhere, it can be hard to find given its dark color. I'm just leaving them on the guitars that I play a lot at home, but don't take out with me.

As for how good they work, seems to be adequate and okay for rough tuning. Overall, these are okay tuners. I really prefer the clip-on style, but if you're like me and always have some picks in your pocket, you might like to include one of these little fellows for when you need a quick tune up.

Easy to read, easy to fall off

This product is ideal for folks who don't want to clip something onto their headstocks. It uses a little magnet to stick to something magnetic, like a tuning machine or even strap screw. It is very small, easy to stow, easy to read, and fairly accurate (tested against my Snark and Boss clip-ons). However, it falls off quite easily - for example when it's attached to a tuning machine and you put your ax on the stand, that little jarring will knock it off. The tiny power button is difficult to depress. You can see by the pic that it is not a chromatic tuner, so it's only good for standard tuning. It's nice to have one of these around, but if I only had one headstock tuner, it would be a clip-on.

        Comments about Korg Magnetune Magnetic Guitar Tuner:

        This Korg tuner has been accurate enough to make tuning my acoustics quicker. There may not be an electronic tuner out there that's as good as your own ear but they do help give you a starting reference. As for the magnetic part of this tuner it is passable. I like the concept of contact which attaches directly to a tuning machine.

                          It is small and can be carried with a cord around the neck, or in the guitar case. I tested it with chimes, etc, and it is right on the perfect pitch. As long as you use 440 and the guitar notes; it is great for other instruments as well, like fiddle, dobro, bass and whatever. Get one of these, today.

                            This can be carried in your pocket for use anywhere. It may not be as accurate as some others but it will leave your guitar in acceptable tune. It's good for a backup tuner.

                              When I got this tuner for free as part of a special promotion, I figured it wasn't any good. I was shocked to discover how well it works! It's actually more accurate than my clip-on tuner from D'Addario. The only negative is that it's only held on with a magnet so if you bump it, it can be knocked off. Probably wouldn't work so well on a gig. But in the studio, it works great!

                                            This thing is really bad. Only tunes notes in standard tuning. Confuses itself when working by fluctuating all over the place. But anything but this. Also, falls off of many guitars. Magnet only works on some metals tuners.

                                              Received as a free gift when purchasing something else. Haven't had the opportunity to use it yet. It looks kinda cheap and flimsy but may very well work fine. We shall see. No money invested so its a good deal either way

                                                      Nice small unit.
                                                      Not as accurate as I would like.
                                                      Nice for carrying in a case as it is small.
