Sound: It's a tuner. I am not fussy on whether or not something is true bypass or whathaveyou, but i detect no negligible sounds coming from this thing. I also have it hooked up from the tuner-out on my Boss PS-2. It's bypassed anyway i guess. Feature: It does everything i want it to do. the only thing is, that it doesn't have a mute function so tuning on stage is audible. While using it direct, i have found that even the slightest pluck of a string will register. It seems accurate and all that, i play with an acoustic rhythm player in my band and i am not sour against his in-guitar Fender tuner. The bright display is handy but in brighter stage lights it's a bit challenging to see depending on the angle. It's chromatic which is a plus. Ease of Use: Turn it on, pluck the string, tune. It's a tuner... Quality: As stated above, i feel that it's very accurate as a tuner. It's kind of lightly constructed but if you take care of your stuff it could be cardboard for all i care. After a few years of regular use and trucking around with this thing on my pedal board the screen shows only a few minor scuffs and scratches. Typical wear really. Value: For $20 i cannot think of a better investment in a tuner. The stomp style tuners are 5-6 times the price and the only feature i'd appreciate would be the mute function. Manufacturer Support: it's never failed me The Wow Factor: It's very bare bones. i think it's designed for exactly how i am using it or for acoustic players who want a chromatic tuner. it sits on my board, never moves and is quite happy there. but it's not the be-all end-all of tuners.

Feature: This thing SUPPOSED to be a tuner. But that's not exactly true. I find it almost IMPOSSIBLE to get in tune.This tuner needs another tuner to be in tune itself!It jumps all over the place and it shows different value every time I hit it (even I hit the same note without changing pitch or anything!!!). This thing really made me cry and it's my worst investment ever. Ease of Use: It's really easy to use but then again,there is no point using it. Quality: It's made of plastic and I am not really confident in it's quality. Overall: I give it a 3 just because cool LEDs and all that fancy light show... BUT AS A TUNER...STAY AWAY FROM THIS THING. My trueset advice.

Sound: It may get the job done(tuning that is), if you're lucky. Feature: Features are somewhat limited. It has a small mic, and a 1/4" input and output on it. The flat button lets you tune down up to 3 half steps while keeping the note names the same, and theres a calibration button which has to do with the frequencies or something(never used it). I've seen other tuners in the same price range with the same features, plus metronome and a speaker to play the pitch. Ease of Use: This thing is so erratic, you can never really tell if you're in tune or not. You can pluck a string, and the center blue LED will come on, telling you its in tune, but then it'll keep shifting all over the place. The letter display goes all over the place too. You might have a G, but it'll say C and still be in tune, then it might go back to saying G a bit later. Quality: It's a bit large, so it might take up a lot of room if you keep it in your case. That doesnt really reflect the quality though, just a poor design. The thing that really bugs me is that the whole row of LED's will faintly blink every couple of seconds if you leave your battery in, so I usually take the battery out after every use which is a pain in the ass. Value: There are much better tuners out there for the same price. Overall: I want a new tuner badly.
