I really love this tuner. It has been well thought out and engineered. It is a perfect size, and can be hand held very comfortably. The display is large and easy to read, and even has on/off optional backlight. It has variable pitch (+/- A 440), and manual overide for tuning any note. It also has sound option to match audible tone vs. scale and light tuning. You can plug in instrument using 1/4 " cable, or use built in mic.
All in all it is very easy to use, and extremely durable. It even comes with batteries! Uses 2 inexpensive AAA, and not your typical costly 9v. I was very impressed for the money. A real find!

I would not buy this product again

Use it to check where my pitch is. Was very difficult to determine. Used embouchure and slide adjustments. Could never really zero in with this unit.

Good quality, sturdy, accurate.

Comments about Seiko SAT800 Durable Style Chromatic Tuner:

Good quality. I had been using the Korg Chromatic tuners,and they work fine, but they are so light that when you plug a cord into them they slide off the table. This Seiko is a little bigger and heavier and has reinforced corners, so it stays put. Tuning is accurate.

    Comments about Seiko SAT800 Durable Style Chromatic Tuner:

    Very stable tuner, easy to use, accurate. The numeric cents display is helpful for justified (chord) tuning. I use this for pedal steel. Although the rubber edging may serve to protect the tuner if dropped, it's also helps it stay put when you place it on an irregular surface, and it helps prevent drops because the tuner doesn't slip out of your hand easily. I've used many tuners and this is my favorite.

                Comments about Seiko SAT800 Durable Style Chromatic Tuner:

                An upgrade from the Korg that I was previously using, including larger display. Perfect for tuning flat and alternate tunings. The cents digital readout is invaluable if you use a tuning method like James Taylor.

                I haven't had it long enough to abuse/drop it, but it seems sturdy enough to take it.

                Great tuner for the price.

                Comments about Seiko SAT800 Durable Style Chromatic Tuner:

                The reference tones emitted by device are not loud; therefore, when comparing with robust-sounding instruments, they are hard to hear.
                There is no flip-out back stand; rather you have to insert a coin or card in a slot at the back of the device to support it. It is able, however, to stand vertically, but it may be hard to read the display unless it is sufficiently elevated to eye level.

                  Comments about Seiko SAT800 Durable Style Chromatic Tuner:

                  This is the best tuner I have had. It has three pitch indications: +/- light, needle, and digital pitch deviation indication.It is sensitive but stable, and the indicators don't jump around as so many tuners do. The backlight makes it easy to see even in low-light conditions. With a bridge clip, it gives good indications even in high noise level situations. I would definitely recommend this tuner highly.
