First off - I dislike electronic tuners, for they never seem to get the instrument into a musical tuning (search 'comma of Pythagoras' and you'll understand what I'm getting at).Second: I have a Peterson strobe tuner, for when it counts (recording). It is programmable to fit several 'musical' guitar tunings. The best.Then, the other night, I had to tune some guitars in a very noisy room. Someone handed me the Dano tuner, and I was very surprised at how well and effortless it worked.I've used many many different tuners in my career. They either do the job, or are a pain to work with. Usually, they are fairly expensive and don't live up to the expectations-per-dollar. I found the Dano to work well above my expectations, and now I see the price...If you have money, get a fancy one. If your budget is tight, or you are reluctant to have an expensive tuner at bars or jam sessions, well, this one certainly works!

I have been using the mini-sized version of this tuner, but the folks at the guitar shop told me that the electronics are the same between the full- and mini- sized units. My experience with this tuner is that it will tell me it's too low, so I tune up. It still tells me it's still too low, so I tune up a little more. Repeat five times, pick the string, and now it tells me that the string is too high. This behavior is not limited to just one or two strings on my guitar, but almost all of them. I also know that is is not due to the nut pinching the string as it's a quality guitar, and I used lighter gauged strings. I also don't have this trouble with other non-pedal tuners I have at my disposal. But it's the pedal tuner I need on stage, when everyone is looking at me waiting to begin the set as I tune again... and again... and again...I'm going to buy the Aria that seems to have better recommendations (and a lower price!), and throw this one into the river. Summary: Don't waste your money.

Waste

By criticalhour

from Blue Springs, MS

looks great but doesnt really work that way. The light keeps flickering which makes it hard to read especially if your on stage. Also it doesnt tune my guitar real good either.

Would have been awesome...

By idResponse

from Olympia, WA

This pedal would have been amazing... but they digitized everything too much. The backlight eventually stopped working on mine, and thus made it IMPOSSIBLE TO READ ANYMORE unless you're staring at it in really good lighting. How many stages have awesome lighting for reading things?It was cool when I first got it, but now I just use some standard passthrough style tuner that's always running and always readable, with a nice analog display.

I got this for a little nothing when my local store closed and it was a waste of time. Notes don't hold long enough to tune and it lacks in accuracy.

This is what cheap will get you...

By Me-32wOI

from Altus, Ok

Six words..."You get what you pay for." I've had this pedal for two years, and everytime I use this, it misreads my signal. I usually just end up tuning my low E; then tune by ear from there. If you want a high-end pedal DO NOT BUY THIS ONE-shell out the extra bucks and buy something better.

FANTASTIC

By Lefty138

from Los Angeles, CA

This pedal is everything I need in a pedal tuner and nothing I don't. Turn it on, tune up, turn it off, and play. Make sure you get the AC adaptor for it as it sucks up battieries. As far as alternite tunings you are kind of out of luck but its an inexpensive tuner that does what it is supposed to, I'd buy it again if something happened to it.

eh, skip it

By Fast fingered Clown

from In a van down by the river

I had this tuner and was underwhelmed with it's performance. If you have the Dan' case, this is nice cuz' you have it all in one package. It is SLOW to read and does pick up interference. If you must have a pedal tuner, spend a few more $$ and get a Fender. If you want one as good as a TU-2, then you had better drop a Franklin and get a TU-2.

You Bet Your Bottom Toppers!!!

from Undisclosed

This pedal is the most accurate tuner I own. You can use a battery, or an AC adapter as a power source. It looks cool, too!

Very Disappointing

By Wingman98

from Perth - Western Australia

I bought this tuner as I had been told by the music shop that it was as good as the Boss TU-2. I don't know who came up with that pearl of wisdom but I don't think they ever tried using this for gigging. I have tried 3 different types of power supply for this and I still haven't got it to work properly. The RF causes the pedal to mistread and give a wrong reading when tuning up. I eventually gave this the flick and shelled out for the Boss. In a nutshell - Waste Of Time & Money.

Horible product

Dies quickly. Don't buy this pedal. Go with a more expensive one. It'll be worth the money.
