This is a great tuner! Everyone needs to keep in mind that when a string on the guitar is struck, multiple frequencies resonate together to form the pitch.. the flickering needle is actually picking up MORE frequency variants than a solid "green light" tuner. In short it's more accurate than some "green light" tuners that don't accurately display the fluctuations in frequency...fluctuations are there and that's what that "flickering needle" is showing you. Frankly I don't trust a tuner that is so quick to give me a solid green light. I'm not saying that there aren't better tuners, but for the price this one's hard to beat and the bottom line is that you CAN sucessfully tune your guitar with this tuner.

This tuner is maddening in its ineptitude, especially in comparison to a good tuner. When installing new strings, it would take a long time before it could figure out what string I was striking. And if there was any background noise, it was useless. Often, a beginner guitarist who walks into a store will ask for an inexpensive product and be told about this tuner. Ironically, a beginner would be well advised to use a tuner which makes tuning easy for the inexperienced. This product can make tuning a new string (for the inexperienced) an awful, time-consuming process. Use your hard-earned dough to purchase a quality product which you will use constantly. I recently purchased a Korg GT-12 (not the most expensive, but excellent quality) and I couldn't be happier.

Not a dependable tuner

By Jesse-s6LwN

from Louisville KY

Just not very dependable. On/off button wears out very fast. I would not buy this again, and I would not suggest it to anyone.

Whatcha 'spect

By Bigbluesboy

from Michigan

Whatcha 'spect for cheap? Well, I got MORE than I expected. Once I learned HOW to use it properly, and drug it through two bands, and numerous drops over five years of use, it's still tickin', and should it ever die I will be very disappointed if I cannot get my hands on another just like it!

You get what you pay for

Just last night I used this tuner and was fixing to start our set. I happened to strum Am and heard my G, B, and D string WAY out of tune! Constant problem with this tuner is the needle is always jumping around and NOT accurate. Most of the time I tune to the piano by ear and am way more accurate. I am actually shopping for a new tuner right now.

ONE HECK OF A TUNER

By kaleb-X3P9p

from Baxley,GA

I've had this tuner for about a month now and it can get quite confusing but, I have learned how to use it more better and my thoughts about it have changed really fast. When I first got it i couldn't stand it. Now I don't know what I would do without it. If you plan to buy a cheap priced tuner. You should definetly get this one.

Hey, Mikey, We Like It!

By BassmanDave-fNSFO

from Wa. state(not DC)

My wife and I have had one of these for 5 years or so. It has always worked great. It works with her 12 string acoustic and my electric bass, whether plugged in or not. Qwik-n-easy. It finally died, and we WILL get another one.

Piece of crap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

By Epiphonelover-ixufc

from Undisclosed

I bought this thing as a replacement to my old one (which i loved and it was cheap as heck. this thing jumps around too much. i plugged my electric into my pedal tuner and got it perfectly in tune, the plugged it into this thing and it said my guitar was totally off. on top of all that, the battery has to constantly be changed, and it can't pick up the sound of my acoustic. worst money i've ever spent. DO NOT GET THIS TUNER.

excellent

By Grisham King

from North Carolina

I don't understand why this product has so many bad reviews. I have had it for about 4 years and rarely have to change the batteries. It is extremely accurate. I gave it a 4.5 on quality, simply because it is made of plastic, but it is extremely sturdy/strong. I have been using it for 4 years and it still looks and works as good as the day I got it.
