        The Tascam TC-1S Solar Tuner is a great idea executed very well. This is hopefully the first step in musical gear that is environmentally conscious, high quality and convenient to use. You never have to change the battery in this tuner and the internal battery has a lot of reserves. What I usually do to charge mine is place it on my dashboard the night before so in the morning the sun will shine on the solar cells. By the time I'm ready to use it it is fully charged again.

        Solar power coolness aside, this tuner is very accurate and it has a few different tuning options like strobe or fine tuning that really make this a quality product. I have bought tuners in the past that are calibrated a little bit off but this one is spot on and could be used for studio recording. I bought one of these as a Stupid Deal, lost it and immediately bought another one at the regular price.

        The only drawbacks are there is no output jack so it is not able to be linked as a tuner on a pedalboard and there is no backlighting to see the display in the dark. Hopefully Tascam will develop a solar powered pedal tuner next.

        Some Good: Works great with the plug in. No more batteries.
        Some Bad: Aweful with the microphone. You have to be really close to the tuner and even then it has a hard time locking on to the note. Maybe I just have a bad one, but not worth sending it back to find out.
        No backlight.

            Bought this tuner to keep with a guitar I use in my Library/Study where there is lots of light. Hangs from my Guitar stand ready for use, always able to work as there are no batteries. No need to clip onto Guitar. Easy to read and has a nice rubber case that keeps it well protected from bumps and drops. Had one sent to a friend to tune his Uke, who lives in Texas and likes to play outside.

              The TC-1S will never need batteries and it's easy to use. Also, the shape makes it easy to put in a shirt pocket and go. All for a really good price! It does take a little getting use to but that is no big deal.

                  I bought these because I always need a tuner around and they charge up on a USB port or with solar cells. It only takes a few minutes to fully charge them & they work like any other tuners. I got the larger Tascam tuner & it works about the same. Definitely a good purchase.

                  It has both an input and a microphone and will keep its charge through a reasonable amount of use. They look cool too with different colors for the rubber cases which are removable. The only thing that could be better is if there was a button to illuminate the screen for use in the dark. But if you want a portable non-clip on tuner, I definitely recommend this one.

                    I have lots of outboard tuners and several of my acoustic electric guitars have tuners built in. This is the only one that is solar powered! No more dead batteries and realizing I'm not carrying any spares to worry about. I like the idea that this tuner can either be plugged in direct or used with the built in mic. Tuning is accurate. Very easy to use. I'm pleased.

                      I was a little wary of the solar power function, as most gigs are at night, luckily fluorescent lighting does the trick.

                      I lost the tuner within a week after clipping it to my gig bag. the little plastic bar that hold the strap and clip apparently didn't hold, neither did the clip. Found it a month later as the snow melted, a few chips in the housing, and a slice in the rubber cover. Clip ad strap were found elsewhere. But the up-shot is, it still works without a hitch.

                        Comments about TASCAM TC-1S Chromatic Tuner:

                        I give this tuner 5 stars even though not backlit. Too often tuners are useful only in dark rooms. The Tascam name speaks for itself. So does SDOD price. The carabineer handle is cool. The solar power and USB both power up this tuner swiftly. Black color is fine with me!
