Neat Little Guitar Tuner – Cherub Mini Guitar Digital Tuner Reviews

posted by Crashsite on 02/21/2009 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
This is a tiny, simple tuner that clips onto the headstock of a guitar. Since it uses vibrations transmitted through the guitar rather than a microphone (like most tuners seem to be), it's not affected much by ambient sounds.
When you turn it on, the LEDs cycle which gives a nice operational check.
The tuner comes with a CR1032 battery which seems to last well and is cheap and easy to find. The Dollar Tree, here in town sells the 3-pack for a buck and DX sells them even cheaper.
Actually, it's not often that I give such high marks to DX products but, this little guy warrants it.
Cons:
Sometimes I need to reposition the tuner on the guitar when tuning some strings. A minor thing.
Other:
The tuner has a switch to tune a semitone flat. Not sure what the usefulness of that is. Perhaps it's good for tuning a guitar for people who sing off key???
Bottomline:
I never put my guitars away. I just lean them against something when I'm done so, it's convenient for me to leave the tuner (and, usually) the capo (KKU 01233) clipped onto the headstock.
