Excellent tuner for acoustic guitars – Cherub Mini Guitar Digital Tuner Reviews

posted by NguyenVanFalk on 12/13/2008 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Clips to headstock and uses vibration frequency to tune - works much better than the (electric guitar) tuner it replaced which used a built-in microphone to tune acoustic instruments. Well-built, compact and lightweight. Tuner rotates 90 degrees on clip for adjustable viewing angle.
Cons:
Won't win any design awards... but, while not attractive, it isn't downright ugly. Not chromatic - can only handle EADGBE tuning - so useless for non-standard tunings.
Other:
Not sure how well this would work with an electric guitar that may not have the resonance of a hollow body acoustic - but haven't tested so can't say for sure.
Bottomline:
A cleverly designed and essentially accessory for acoustic guitars for a fraction of the price at the local shops. One of my best DX purchases.
