Good tuning fork – Fom A-440HZ Aluminum Alloy Tuning Fork with Leather Pouch Reviews

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...
Other:
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.
