Good idea, but some bad choices. What were they thinking?
on June 13, 2018
Both the instruction manual and the product itself use an unreadable micro-font: Approximately a 6 pt font for the instructions and about a 3 pt font in the pictures! Unless you have extremely good close-in vision, you will want reading glasses and a copy of the instruction manual with 175% magnification. Because the product's operation is so non-intuitive, you will need to keep the magnified instructions with you until its non-intuitive operation becomes second nature.
It seems to tune well, although it may require 2 or 3 passes as each string tuned has an effect on the strings already tuned, just like when you tune by hand. It's very irritating to have to put on reading glasses to read the choices on the side of the Roadie, such as for tuning with a capo. I thought it might be good for a quick re-tuning when using a capo, but, so far, it takes too much time if you're doing a performance.
