  • Good tuning fork

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Quite accurate - Measurement using CoolEditPro Frequency analysis shows 440.06hz *see screenshot attached. Frequency measurement taken at ~20 degrees C at 1010 hPa barometric pressure.
    My phone was also used to test, detects a true 440hz digital signal as 440.8, detects this fork as 441.1hz, which can be attributed to it being an app on a phone.
    Pleather pouch is a nice touch..
    Plating is smooth and seems durable - not like it takes a tonne of abuse.

    Cons:

    None I can think of really...it's not really useful for...anything...at all...

    OtherThoughts:

    Really cool conversation piece.
    NOT made of aluminum/aluminium. Clearly steel or other heavier more springy metal.

    Bottomline:

    If you really need a somewhat accurate, analog, somewhat awkward to use tuning fork (in a digital age, who has time for a signal that attenuates over a few seconds)...then get this, you can't go wrong.
