Comments about Peterson 490 8-Octave AutoStrobe Tuner:

This strobe tuner is by far the best tuner on the market. The cost is more, but you get what you pay for. I use it for piano tuning, and plan to upgrade later to the 490ST for stretch tuning, but for now I use this one. It is nice and portable, and easy to use. The buttons on the front are what I use for my temperament, and it automatically shows the other octaves on the same screen, making it so easy to use for piano tuning. I just love it! I use this in the studio where things have to be exact. It's really cool that it has other "Keys" for other instuments, which will come in handy for when I am recording classical quartets. It's invaluable for any studio. The face surface is nice too, since it doesn't allow for any kind of liquid to get into buttons if there is a spill or something splashes on it. It also elliminates dust from getting into the buttons and causing them to wear out prematurly. It's rugged case is made to last quite a while, and the handle/stand is a great feature, as it locks into place at different places to use to carry or as a stand that won't slide back down like the non-locking stands. I would suggest any musician that cares about accuracy get this unit.

Fantastic for what it is

Comments about Peterson 490 8-Octave AutoStrobe Tuner:

The Peterson T490 is a fantastic strobe tuner, and it's an indispensable part of my shop. The only downside is that I prefer to turn off the "auto-note select" feature, but sometimes the buttons are a bit insensitive. The first few times I used this, I almost began tuning my E string to a B note strobe because I didn't press the E button hard enough. With all that in mind, this tuner is a bit more than what an average musician needs. If an average musician wants strobe accuracy in their bedroom, a digital strobe tuner can be had for less than half the price. However, if you need the "true" response of a non-digital strobe tuner, you really can't go wrong with this, provided that you can afford it. It's a solid unit, and stunningly accurate.
