This is a useful tool in tuning and an electronic tuner is recommended by a number of books I've read for ukulele beginners like me. It works like a charm but two caveats: it comes with a really tiny screw used to secure the battery compartment (lwhich stays closed even without the screw) and if you want to use the screw you'll need a really tiny screwdriver--I used one from an eyeglass repair kit which worked well. Secondly, although it isn't clear from the printed instructions, you need to press the power button repeatedly to put the tuner in the mode of your instrument, in my case Uc for the standard re-entrant 'c' ukulele tuning, When I did that, it worked perfectly and was consistent with the tuning app I use on my iPhone which has the proper frequencies programmed in. All in all, it works well, is easy to use, and is a big bargain pricewise.

I've tried to give this thing a fair shake about five times now, but it's mostly unusable for me. Just to be clear up front, I have a Snark clip-on tuner that I love, and have been using for at least the last couple of years.

The biggest problem with this tuner's design is that you can't orient it so that it's about 90 (or 270) degrees WRT the headstock - it will always be at either 0 or 180 degrees to that axis. Well, I'm guessing that I haven't figured out how the design might allow it to swivel on the appropriate axis to do that, anyway. This makes the readout basically look like a book that's been knocked over.

The next biggest problem is that it's hard to tell, at a glance, if a string is tuned flat or sharp. At least on my guitars, it takes a couple of seconds to gravitate towards dead-on tune, and the screen turns green. The problem is that for flat or sharp, you get a blue screen.

The other big problem is that it takes a few seconds for this tuner to settle into determining the actual pitch of the note, which makes it tougher to actually be able to quickly tell which strings are out of tune.

This is a great product. It picks up every chord and tunes accordingly. It’s very accurate. Read the instructions so you’ll know exactly where to place it. It’s very easy to use.

My daughter is learning guitar and loves using this to tune it. It’s small and easy to carry in her case and clips on easily.

My almost 8 year old started dabbling in the acoustic guitar world last year. I kept taking his guitar to my dad to tune until I saw this. The price was great so I thought I'd give it a shot. And it works great and is super easy after reading the instructions. I'm now teaching my son how to use it so he can tune his own guitar.

I was pleasantly surprised at how small this tuner is. It holds onto the guitar well and because it's so light weight and small I forgot it was even attached! This is definitely something useful I'm glad I purchased so I can spend more time learning than tuning.

I bought this for my son who plays guitar. He really likes it! Works very well! It's small and non intrusive. Shows what note you are playing and turns green when it's in tune. Really good price for a nice product.

THis is a great little tuner. My son plays and has been looking for something to use for tuning. This fit the bill. It is compact and fits nicely in his case and helpd him to always be in tune.

This type tuner is great if you have no experience tuning a string instrument. It took me a while to get in the groove using it, but I'm a total beginner. All in all, it's very handy.

This seems like a nice gadget and works well except I have no idea how to use it. There are no instructions what the different modes are and the numbers.
