I had the older model and somehow I had it in my pocket and it ended up going through a full cycle in the Washing Machine. So I went to get another one and lucked out that this newer model was the Stupid Deal and I got two.
In the meantime I dried the old one one in front of the fan for a few days and it STILL WORKS great.
So now I have that one in my old Gibson, the New one goes on my Breedlove Revival DM (amazing guitar).
I think these tuners are a little more accurate than most of the clip on headstock models and once you get the hang of it are much easier to use. I don't notice any real depreciation in tone using them .
The older model was standard tuning and that's it, really all I want from a tuner. The newer one has more features which I can easily do without and they make the learning curve a bit more, if there even is a learning curve, these things are fairly intuitive.
All in all I prefer these tuners, and for sure the older model is durable, like an old Timex.

Hoping the new model is as durable as the old one but I don't plan on putting it in the Wash to find out.

its a great idea but could have been executed a bit better. It tunes you up pretty quick but that's about the end. (please note that it is not as easy to use as a clamp on tuner, those ones seem to be quicker to respond and more finely gradated but this certainly gets the job done). ok, you are all tuned up and ready to strum to your hearts content....wrong! Anything more aggressive than finger picking or playing individual strings at a time will land this tuner right inside the sound hole of your guitar having you doing the old upside-down guitar hop to get the thing out. This as we all know becomes very aggravating. If there was some type of snap or a better clip to hold it in place this thing would be the greatest, however, there isn't.... so it isn't.

    Comments about Korg Rimpitch Chromatic Sound Hole Tuner:

    I have an Ovation Pinnacle guitar. The top of my guitar is too thick for this tuner to mount. I was warned in another review, but couldn't resist the price. Alas the slot in the mounting bracket is too narrow and won't slide onto the sound hole. Very disappointed. But rather than go to the hassle of returning, I'm going to find someone who can use it and surprise them. So just a confirmation ... if you have an Ovation guitar, beware this tuner. My 3 stars are based on ... well, I just aimed for the middle since this isn't really a review per se.

                  I got this as a stupid deal of the day, I had been looking for a tuner for a 12 fret Martin OOO I use for alternate tunings a lot. The Korg fits perfectly and the lights are very bright, highly visible even in a brightly sunlit room. Hold down the single button a few seconds and it comes on. The note is a red light to the right, the intoned is a yellow to green bank on the left. Very simple, very visible, seems quite accurate. If I had paid the regular price I would think I had received very good value for the purchase.

                  Comments about Korg Rimpitch Chromatic Sound Hole Tuner:

                  Bought this as an SDOTD. For the price it was worth the risk to see if it would work on my new 5-string bass. While not perfect, it is good enough to do the job. The tracking on the open E and B strings isn't good but it does read the harmonic fine and that works for me.

                      I love being able to add a spot-on tuner to some of my older acoustics. Let's face it, I can tune by ear no problem, but since I've had a family and children I rarely have reasonable quiet when I'm tuning. Over the years as my newer guitars have come equipped with built-in tuners, I've really come to love it. When I saw this for a steal on the stupid deal I scooped it up and I love it! Installed in seconds, turned it on and BAM - perfect pitch in a fairly noisy room.
