Only goood tuner in that price range, and a chromatic option would be fantastic.best aspect is the reliability, the worst is that lack of an output jack

Very good for a basic first tuner, the pitch pipe is very handy for getting near the correct note, or for a blind person i guess. wish it was a chromatic tner and that it would have an output on it.
Pretty good construction, but would break easily if too much abuse it put on it.
I like these guys for the price you can't go wrong. Easy to use, portable (in my shirt pocket) and pretty stable. After tuning I need to tweak the G and B strings ever so slightly to get it tuned to my happiness. Other than that - no problemo. IU would give it a 4 1/2 stars but we don't do fractions.

This thing is small, portable and cheap. It's an LCD needle based Guitar specific tuner. I has a mic input for acoustics and a 1/4 inch input for electrics. It's fully automatic you don't select a string via some button, just pluck and tune. Easy.
I take this where ever I go - actually I have two one in my car and one in my desk at work. I have other brands at home and in my Guitar case. I haven't tried the drop test yet but they've sat in my car flown on airplanes etc to no problem.
