I use this primarily for my pedal steel. As for the features, I rated it a 9 of 10 only because it does not accomodate an A/C adaptor. I'd prefer to leave it on for the the entire gig and check my tuning from time to time rather than rely on batteries but other than that it's a great value. I especially like the backlighting for dark stages. I'll probably get another of these if this one stops working.

I thought Seiko made good stuff. This tuner is a lemon. Slow to respond.
Could NOT get low E guitar in tune. Screen was blank several times.
Tried new batteries, different guitar cables, fresh strings, etc. Right out of the box this item is DEFECTIVE in all modes. Really bummed out.
Sent it back ASAP. MF gave good customer service for returning and suggested I try the intellitouch clip on tuner.

      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.

            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.

              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.

                  I purchased two of these tuners. I am using one for the tuning of my 36 string harp. LOVE the feel and stability of the tuner. Sits nicely on the music stand and does not slid off like other tuners have in the past. Looking forward to using it with my guitars and other instruments. I have not fear of it breaking if it should drop to the floor beause of the surrounding rubber. So far I am very satisfied with the tuner -

                  Comments about Seiko SAT800 Durable Style Chromatic Tuner:

                  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!
