Just to set the record straight

By Tim2723

Comments about Kratt SN5 Ukulele Pitchpipe:

The only reason for me to write this is to give the fair truth about the product. Pitch pipes are to electronic tuners what the telegraph is to cell phones. While I respect the opinions of the other reviewers, it's important to know that pitch pipes don't last forever, have to be blown correctly (a skill in itself), and do not sound at all like the instrument they are tuning. They sound more like a harmonica than a ukulele.

As an old-timer who was around before electronic tuners or the Internet, I had to rely on these and tuning forks for years. Not that I'd ever go back, though. While pitch pipes are an anachronism today, it's interesting to see that they are still around. They still work well if you take the time and trouble to use them correctly. For those who get a kick out of doing things the old-fashioned way(and a lot of ukulele players do!), the Kratt SN5 is the authentic deal.
This has all the features expected of a pitch pipe. It's just that pitch pipes don't have many features.
Kratt is among the oldest and most respected names in pitch pipes. They've been around for generations and have served musicians well for decades. I've owned several over the years and have one I bought just last year in my case now.
As pitch pipes go, this is a great deal. But today you can purchase an electronic tuner for about the same money.

Crappy product

By fructosebat

from North Adams, MA

Comments about Kratt SN5 Ukulele Pitchpipe:

I'm sorry to say that I received this tuner as a gift with my new ukulele, and after the second try, the E pipe would no longer play an accurate note. Soon thereafter, the G pipe also failed. Don't buy this! It's over-priced and it doesn't hold up to use at ALL!

Garbage

By Slappy McHappyPants

from Washington DC

Comments about Kratt SN5 Ukulele Pitchpipe:

Dont' waste your money on this crap. Two of the pipes on this thing are so muffled that they are impossible to hear. And the tones are nothing like that of a ukelele.
