          Excellent tuner for the money. I have used others and this one works very well and is easy to use. There may be better tuners but they are also much more expensive - for the price, this one is hard to beat.

          A Guitar beginner's opinion

          By Clifford Crissman

          from Chicago, IL - near Niles

          Comments about Yamaha YT-250 Tuner:

          If you are serious about playing the guitar then this is a good product to have in your arsenal.
          However, I have never tried any other tuner. This is the first one I purchased. I believe you get
          what you pay for - most of the time. For the other times that is what these reviews are for.
          When your guitar is really out of tune you can use the manual setting to choose which key you want to tune. If the strings are just slightly out of tune then the automatic setting will choose the correct key as soon as you strike it. You can also set the strings slightly higher or lower by setting the pitch and then tuning the string to that pitch. I guess you would have to be an expert guitar player who wants to get a specific sound to deliberately tune one or more strings slightly higher or lower.
          Seems like it will last a long time to me. I wouldn't drop it on a hardwood or concrete floor but it
          did slip out of my hand once and hit the kitchen floor with no damage.
          I tried to tune an acoustic electric guitar with an on-board tuner but it still didn't sound quite right.
          When I brought out my Yamaha YT-250 and set it to Automatic. The guitar was so out of tune that
          the tuner was choosing the wrong string. By choosing the Manual setting on the YT-250 I was able
          to tune the guitar. After this experience I will never buy a guitar with an on-board tuner.

          Great product!
          Works just like I expected. The built in mic worked really well for tuning my acoustic guitar.
          Not heafty as I would have liked it to be.

          Good Tuner

          By AInvisibleNinja

          Comments about Yamaha YT-250 Tuner:

          This is a great little tuner. I have used it for over a year near. It will tune your guitar perfectly. The only problem I have ever had with it is that it is a little jumpy, so whenever you get it in tune you have to watch it for about a second to see if it goes flat again. Overall it is a great tuner though and I would suggest it.

          Ace In The Hole

          By SweetheartSounds

          from Loveland, CO

          Comments about Yamaha YT-250 Tuner:

          I just received this tuner in my order. I excited about trying it after reading good reviews here. This is your ace-in-the-hole tuner! It acturately tuned my guitar with ease. Compared with the Quik Tune QT-11 that came with my guitar, this Yamaha 250 is tops. This is the tuner I will keep in my gig bag!

          Comments about Yamaha YT-250 Tuner:

          This tuner works amazing. It's right on tune, my guitars and bass sound amazing. This tuner is beats out many of the Korg tuners I've used. It's kind limited with features, but can tune a seven-string guitar and five-string bass.

          Decent Tuner with One Shortfall

          By KBAustin

          from Austin, TX

          Comments about Yamaha YT-250 Tuner:

          I bought this tuner to have around the house due to its very affordable price and its list of features for the dollar spent, and the fact that my Boss TU-12 somehow grew legs and walked away somewhere.Overall, this is a good little tuner. It is very solid in its construction, has a lot of features, allows you to do a lot of different things in terms of pitch, etc., that you do not find in more expensive tuners. For those reasons, I give it a good mark.As for cons, I am somewhat disappointed with the tuning meter in its LCD form. It seems very "jumpy" to me and is not nearly as user-friendly as the Boss tuners that have a meter where the hand actually sweeps across the face of the meter, which is particularly nice to have in low light conditions where it would be easier to see something move rather than look at an electronic representation of a sweep hand.If you have the money to spend a little more and opt for one of the Boss units, I would do so; but I don't think you will can really go wrong with what Yamaha is selling here.

          Comments about Yamaha YT-250 Tuner:

          This is a awesome tuner, im from Brazil and asked to my uncle to buy it. Small, pratic, good has everthing that you need in a tunner and it is a yamaha product. If you need a tuner you have to buy it, to buy another is a waste of money.
